[fr] The number of people participating in the practice of aggressive inline skating – and inline skating in general – has been growing since the Covid-19 pandemic. From there, organizations are trying to make the competition circuit grow into something more professional, by proposing national, continental and world championships. However, there exist many gaps in the world of aggressive skating competitions, especially in the share and storage of information concerning those competitions. The objective of this thesis will be to identify the main gaps concerning aggressive skating competitions and their judging system, and to propose solutions that would at least prove to be helpful in the filling of those gaps.
Our main proposition will be to propose a structure for a database that would allow the storage of information concerning events. A platform will also be proposed to ease the storage and retrieval of information in this database.
The following of the thesis will be devoted to proposing added features for the database and the platform, with the aim of clarifying the judging system used in aggressive skating competitions. To achieve this, we will conduct a case study with (mostly) professional athletes from the aggressive discipline of inline skating, which will help us better understand the needs of the community in terms of improvements.
