I am looking for the right technologies to create a live score system
cricket match. I like the look of RoR as I will be able to build up
team/player statistics, use TDD and MVC. I’m learning Ruby/RoR.
The system is mainly for use at cricket matches. The scorer enters the
score into the database, everyone who has a wireless enabled device gets
updated score sheet.
I need to be able to handle a large number of users (from tens to
potentially tens of thousands) most can be expected to be viewing one of
few pages (score for current game).
Should I be considering some sort of broadcast protocol or will HTTP be
I fancy running it on a small linux box and was considering a wireless
router running OpenWRT and RoR. Anyone done this?
