CFL Pick 'Em

In 2014, a Ruby On Rails-based website application was developed by a vendor external to the Canadian Football League that allowed fans to register an account and virtually bet (no real monetary value placed) on which team would win each regular season and playoff game in the CFL season schedule.

In 2018, I undertook a rebuild and migration of the CFL Pick ‘Em website to Laravel 5.x in order to improve the site stability, bring the codebase in line with existing internal CFL standards (PHP and MySQL-based whenever possible) and generally improve the website’s featureset. One major goal was to provide updated leaderboard rankings and scores within seconds of each game’s conclusion; Laravel Horizon as a queue/job processing solution makes this possible, with the Amazon Aurora database scaling automatically ramped up as any game enters its 4th quarter.
