Data Source Blocked01 May 2015

With the advent of a new NHL.com, my primary data source isn’t able to poll for data. Will look for API alternative… someday.

A little experiment I created that solves a simple question – Did the Leafs lose? The answer: DidTheLeafsLose.com. Currently, it updates scores every fifteen minutes. Ideally, I’d like to speed this up overtime and bring in more data than just scores. It is powered by ExpressionEngine uses Foundation for the front-end. A hat-tip to Mr. Shane Woodward for helping develop the idea and possible technical solutions and extensions.

My name is Ian McFarlan and I have been a web developer since 2003. I’ve mainly worked in client services and advertising but lately I have been getting my hands dirty with product development.
