Sports Fan Graph Export Feature
We built Sports Fan Graph, a sports social media statistics aggregator, for Pat Coyle’s consulting firm Coyle Media a couple years ago and have been maintaining it and improving it ever since. It’s a tough application – pulling in reams of data from Twitter and Facebook and then presenting it in a way that’s helpful to sports marketers. In truth, we took on a bit more than our small team could chew. We aren’t application developers by any means, so it was a challenging project and we continue to learn from it. From time to time, though, Pat receives requests from organizations requesting exports of the data for further analysis. Rather than us having to write custom queries and extract the data every time, we chose to develop an export page instead so that Pat’s team could access it whenever they needed to. We released this export page so that Coyle Media can select the date range, teams, and export Twitter or Facebook stats.
