Notifly Makes List of 15 Amazing Rails Rumble Web Applications
We participated in Rails Rumble this year. Rails Rumble is a 48 hour programming competition where the idea is to create a web application from scratch completely within the 48 hour time limit. This is our first year entering the competition, but it certainly won't be our last. We had a great time and built something we think to be incredibly useful.
Our entry is Notifly, a service that will allow developers to send notifications to their user-base via multiple different communication channels, such as email, instant messenger, text message, or twitter. We were only able to get to about 75% of where we wanted to be (mainly due to my prolonged absences during the competition), but it still turned out well. We learned quite a bit from the competition this year and can't wait to give it another shot next year.
Oh, and shame on Network World for that horribly intrusive advertising.
