There was a burst of interest in WSBA website development on their mailing list—enough to annoy a few non-coders at any rate. So Racing on Rails has its own Google Group for development. Here’s hoping it’s the tip of the volunteer Rails coder cyclist iceberg.
For those late to the party or too lazy to click the link above, Racing on Rails is the Ruby on Rails application behind several bike racing association websites like the WSBA and OBRA. It’s all open source (except for the association-specific parts), and it pretty much works OK at this point.
I’ve put a lot of time into this code in the last few years. Plenty of cool ideas abound for these sites—it would be great to have more developers to make those ideas happen.
