Blogging

Aim of the challenge

Teams will blog about their experiences preparing for Pi Wars. The frequency of posts as well as subject matter will be taken into account. Posts can be on a variety of topics such as:

  • Information about team members
  • The design process
  • Build progress
  • Programming progress
  • Testing progress
  • Photo galleries

These are just some ideas and teams are encouraged to make the blog as engaging as possible. The use of photographs and video is strongly encouraged.

There are many blog platforms out there that you can use, for example:

Blog URLs should be submitted as soon as possible after acceptance into the competition to mike@recantha.co.uk.

Special rules

  • Although blog posts can be publicised over Twitter, please note that Twitter will not be accepted as a blogging platform - it's just too much work to keep checking for individual tweets and the character limit is a definite disadvantage.
