Programming a Score-Keeping App for Sport Tournaments

University of Amsterdam, Spring 2016
Research project proposal for HvA students

Motivating Problem

At big sport tournaments where multiple games are played simultaneously on a large number of fields, it is difficult as spectator to keep an overview of who is playing whom at the moment, and what the current scores are.


The goal of this project is to program a website which works well on smartphones (i.e. it is responsive, and can handle touch events). The site helps the user to navigate on the premises of such a tournament. Additionally, it allows spectators to keep scores (in a sense, we would like to crowd-source the task of score-keeping to the spectators). In particular, the website should do the following:


All code produced in this project will be freely available from As a side effect, we learn how to work with the github platform.
