Miros (734652) writes "ESPN Innovation is hosting a scoring app development competition with over $10,000 in prizes. The objective is to test out an experimental Open Scoring API called ALPS. ALPS is designed to enable the community to build better applications for capturing data from under-reported collegiate and local athletic events. Quoting:

We are looking for a few things. Developers can provide us with real-world feedback on the design of our API which is crucial for its long-term success. Does our API capture the right information, and is it structured in a way that will enable developers to leverage it quickly and effectively? We also want to test out the mechanics of our Open model. What support structures do we need to have in place to engage the community effectively? There are likely applications and features that we have not thought of but that the community would make good use of. What would motivate a developer to build an app that leverages our API? Where can we add value to the ecosystem, and how can we refine our approach so that it is a “win” for everyone involved?
