I am looking for the right technologies to create a live
score system for a 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
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 the 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 a few pages (score for current game).
Should I be considering some sort of broadcast protocol or
will HTTP be best?
I fancy running it on a small linux box and was considering a
wireless router running OpenWRT and RoR. Anyone done this?
