I’ve been keeping track of high school football scores in Virginia for quite a while. And I’ve been meaning to create a site to that will provide information on schools, seasons, etc. I also plan to add video highlights as well. Since I haven’t yet settled on a framework, I’ve decided that I will detail the creation of my site in my blog as well as provide video of the design of the site using the three frameworks I’m looking at:
So, the stage has been set. I’m still trying to decide which I like better, Django or RoR. There are some things in each that I’m really impressed with. And what about CF with M-G:U? Its the definite underdog. But I write in ColdFusion at work and I’ve been looking for a project to use M-G:U. It could surprise me.
I haven’t worked out the details yet, but I’m thinking that I’ll do one particular piece at a time and do it under each framework for comparison’s sake. And of course, I’m planning to make a screencast showing how each framework handles the particular task.
Now if only I can convince my work to let me have the time off to work on this, while still paying me, then we can make some progress. Otherwise, this will take a while.
