A Word On Our Technology

FanNation was developed using the Ruby on Rails framework originally released by David Heinemeier Hansson and continuously updated by the rails core team. While developing FanNation, we leaned heavily on the Rails Recipes, Agile Web Development with Rails, and Ruby for Rails books, as well as the Ruby and Rails framework sites. To keep up with the latest advances we also frequented several great Rails blogs like Riding Rails, Rails Express, codefluency, Gluttonous, Ruby Inside, has_many: through, and a host of others. We couldn't have done it without these resources and the entire Ruby on Rails community.
