Levi Rosol / SportsLeeg


SportsLeeg - Adventures In My First Rails Application

SportsLeeg is the only site that offers premium levels of team management functionality and social interaction for people associated with high school and other amateur sports.

In this presentation Levi will talk about creating his first ever Rails application. From researching Rails, to building a business plan, to rolling the site out live and expanding the development team. The good, the bad and the ugly will get covered here.

Topics that will be covered:

  • How the SportsLeeg idea was formed
  • Rails vs. .Net
  • OS X vs Ubuntu vs Windows?
  • LovdByLess vs CommunityEngine
  • Heroku vs WebbyNode
  • Making time to build the project
  • Growing the team when you have no funding
  • Functionality of SportsLeeg today, and in the future
