Kidzworld: One Of The Largest Ruby On Rails Sites Ever Deployed
Vancouver's Kidzworld Launch: A Social Networking Website For Kids
Kidzworld: a fully moderated, safe and secure social networking site for kids. Kidzworld the company is a 7-year old Vancouver company and has over 700,000 users to date worldwide. In their world online, internet savvy grade-schoolers can play games, enter contests, win prizes, test their knowledge in trivia quizzes, keep up to date on the latest sports and entertainment news, and meet other Kidzworld members from all over the world!
Even though it's designed and created for kids online, the kid in you will dig this site. My favourite section is the photo and videosharing KW Zone. Once you set up your profile, you can upload pictures, videos, find friends, add friends, comment on others' photos, and the coolest feature: edit the entire design of your KWZone to pretty much anything as many times as you want!
You can check out all the latest in the sports world, listen to your favourite tunes on KW Radio and get up to date on all the latest gossip in entertainment - wow, I think I just described my perfect news source!
Jeremy Hubert, Raincity's Director of Web Development and Ruby on Rails developer, built the site from the ground up. It was an enormous project and took months of the nose to the grindstone, meeting with the team at Kidzworld on a regular basis to get the perfect product developed to their satisfaction and off the ground.
The site was built entirely in Ruby on Rails, and is, without a doubt, one of the largest deployments of a Rails site EVER!
Congratulations to Kidzworld - what a feat! Now, let the kid in all of you take a spin through a Kidzworld, and enjoy!
