I’m getting to the point where I’m close to deploying the first release for the Racing Club Manager. I thought I should inform anyone that is actually paying attention what my release plans are. Instead of releasing the ENTIRE site at once in a completed state, I am going to deploy multiple releases over time. This approach allows me to get features of the site out faster with less bugs. The first release contains the following features:
Race management includes things like setting up series, scheduling races, inputting results, managing racers, and points templates.
Your club profile includes the name of your club, your club personality, whether or not you are currently accepting requests to join, and the ability to write a description or any information people should know about your club.
This release is like the bare bones of the site. It includes everything you would need to start your club, schedule races and record the results.
Right now we don’t support a club having more than 1 game associated, so future releases will get us to the point where just because say Forza 6 comes out, you won’t have to start a whole new club to track those results. It will be a seamless transition with no extra set-up required.
Another future release will be the ability to track results where your racing series requires racers to be on a team. I know team racing and team scoring should be a point of emphasis and we will be working toward implementing the best solution possible. We just don’t know what that is yet and will be working on it in the near future.
I’m sure lots of feedback will be coming in and we will be able to create a FAQ that is easily searchable.
Another release is going to have to be filtering for a lot of features. Searching for a club will become impossible after a while unless we implement some filtering options. Also, the all races completed view can become unruly after just a few months of racing.
If you are reading this and think of anything else that I might be missing, be sure to contact me or leave a comment and I’ll prioritize it and get it done.
Thanks for reading!
