Major League Soccer
Major League Soccer (MLS) is an athletic club that consists of 19 teams split into the Eastern and Western conferences.
Workhabit approached the Stauffer team with a project that would allow Major League Soccer stakeholders to provide fans the ability to view up-to-date statistics for their favorite teams and individual players. These statistics would be sortable and integrated within the MLS Drupal website.
The Stauffer team built a bridge between the statistical information provider and a Drupal multi-site platform. This was set up by building a Zend framework that would format the statistics and send them out through JSON by team, individual, and position. Additional functionality such as the highest score, best goalie, highest performer, and shots blocked were also created. In addition, the Stauffer team included a layer of memcaching to allow the MLS site to respond quickly and handle heavy traffic.
