Everyone should know by now – I launched a new service called FantasyBaseballAlerts.com over Memorial Day weekend. The service itself seems as simple as it can get – track a player, get different alerts about them based on different criteria.
Well…the one thing that’s kept me highly motivated on the project for the past few weeks is all the cool shit that goes on behind the scenes. We’re preparing for version 2.0 to launch on Monday (June 10, 2012), and I wanted to give everyone a sneak peak in to the components that are behind FantasyBaseballAlerts.com:
The whole site, front & back end are built on the Codeigniter platform (yes, even our cron jobs!). We’ve been using it for about 4 years now, and we think it’s the bees knees. Seriously…look in to it…you can literally build an app overnight with it – it’s very easy to pick up & use!
