I’ve been a skateboarder since 1976 and during decades I’ve been into skateboarding contests all over Brazil as a judge. It was an awful responsibility to give scores (ugh) to all the friendly skateboarders, lots of them my friends and world-class skaters…and since then it was clear that it would be possible to improve the whole judging process in several ways.
Well, today a lot has changed in a skateboard scenario and… since I became a programmer, why not work in a fully automated judging system for a small neighborhood skateboard contest to maybe a full X-Games kind of event? So here it is my try: Skate Match!
Skate Match is for iPads (will be available for iPhones too) that consists of two modes: the Judge and the Head Table. Judge will give scores to the skaters and send to the guy of the Head Table, who will be the one that is gonna make all the calculations and give the final ranking. So, suppose a contest with 3, 4, 5 judges at the skatepark and one Head Table at the staff stage receiving wirelessly all the scores from then. That’s how it works!
To connect each device is very straightforward:
Enable wi-fi or bluetooth, then just go to Judge's window, press the red "connect" button and choose HOST to be the Head Table. Then the judges press "connect" and select JOIN to be able to be part of the session and send the scores.
After sending, the score will be displayed full screen to show to other participants or to the public. So you can use it without be connected if necessary.
You can use SktMatch the way you want: full mode, just as a judge's score display or just as a ranking calculator.
