Peregrine

Peregrine is a web app for collecting and analysing data from robotics competitions. It is a project created for my robotics team, which I developed alongside two other programmers from our team, Frank Harding and Caleb Eby. Peregrine was created to move our team away from our old, tedious method of paper-forms-and-spreadsheets style data collection to a faster and easier online platform, with builtin data processing and analytics.

We used the first version of Peregrine at several competitions in the 2018 season year and loved it. We also gained quite a bit of insight into how we could improve it, and launched a new and improved version before the 2019 season. The source for the v1 frontend and backend are on GitHub, as is the v2 frontend and backend.

The frontend is a PWA (progressive web application) written in Typescript using (p)React and hosted on the static content hosting service Netlify. The backend is written in Go with a PostgreSQL database and is hosted in either Google Cloud during the season, or a server owned by a team member during the offseason.
