2012 Moskovitch Dancesport Championships 14/09/2012

2012 Moskovitch Dancesport Championships

The Moskovitch Dancesport Championships are making history. Not only in terms of their longevity! Their 34th edition is the first ever WDSF event that posts the competition results from the venue straight to this website, and without anyone on this end having to reformat and post any html files.

John Caprez, the WDSF webmaster and developer of the Application Programming Interface (API) that makes all this possible, writes about the landmark event to his fellow programmers. "As you all know, it can be quite hard at times to get the results of a competition onto our website in a timely manner," John writes. "For this I am very proud to report on the first competition results that have been uploaded from the competition venue directly to our website with me being on holidays."

The results of today's (14 September) WDSF Open Ten Dance are right here The responsible scrutineer, who uploaded straight from Moscow,  is Boris Gulay (you guessed it: son of Galina and Valery Gulay).  "Without Boris' enthusiastic participation, the project would probably have taken much more time to premiere in real competition," says Caprez. Boris has also planned to upload the results live for the International Opens Latin (Sunday) and Standard (Saturday) taking place this weekend in Moscow.

Well done Boris, congratulations for being the first API user uploading live results!
