Fellow FourPlayers,

Credit purchasing is fixed in the iOS app. Added a server for this weekend. Preparing to leave RackSpace and migrate to a different provider. Commissioners can edit league members start and stop weeks using FourPlay Online and the master standings should recalculate.

Seems like we’ve had overloaded servers every weekend. The last 2 weekends were unbearable.

Lots of tech issues this year. Many of you have questions. Here’s the scoop:

We’re moving away from Ruby on Rails (codebase). Rails worked for FourPlay’s MVP, however, each year the app has gotten worse while FourPlay is growing bigger.

The original FP app isn’t worth fixing, due to the shrinking number of Ruby on Rails developers to support the code. So, we’ve invested in building a new web app alongside the original MVP on a reliable codebase.

Fortunately, all of you are about as crazy and sick as us! So, you’ve stuck it out through the pain. Remember, we used to use spreadsheets to calculate point totals!

The road map is to finish building a full feature web app (penalty pot, more commish tools, credit purchases, etc.), then we’ll roll out mobile. Now is the time to send your feature requests!

Special thanks to Betty and the dev team for building the new app online.

Please take a minute and login on a laptop or tablet and give us your feedback.

Personally, I had to commit more time than I wanted to my other business during the heart of the season.

Focused on finishing the season strong and setting us up for success for the remainder of the year and off-season development.

Good luck this weekend and let there be BLOOD!!!

Thanks for reading,

-HC
