Over the past few months, I’ve been making significant progress on the Betaville Web Service (written in PHP, returns JSON responses).  This has become a major point of focus as of a few weeks ago when we decided to convert the current Betaville website from a largely broken Ruby-on-Rails site to a new PHP site that makes use of this service.

With an increasing number of people working on both the service and the website I’ve written a short tutorial on getting the service set up for yourself.  If you’re interested, give it a try :)
