I’ve decided to write some software for doing tournaments. There must be others out there. What do they use at all of the big tournaments like the Pan Ams? I haven’t heard of any. When I Google I don’t find any specifically for Jiu-Jitsu. I’m not really in it for the money. I want to write something for the smaller tournaments that can’t afford the big ticket software (what ever it is). One of the first things you do in software development is discovery. I’m lucky because I have got to volunteer at West Side Classic the last two years. It gave me a real feel for how a tournament is run. This has helped me understand from a organizers standpoint what is needed but I don’t have a strong feeling on what a participants is like. That would come from someone who has experienced may different tournaments and can tell me what they like best. So all of you out there who compete. Please share with me the good things about tournaments you liked and the not so good. Please give me some comments on what your wish list would be in a tournament. For example: I wish I didn’t have to wait in line for registration. I wish I could do it online. That’s a simple example, I know. Please share with me.
Jiu-Jitsu is Life and Life is Jiu-Jitsu.
