Well, I've became part of my school enterprise along with my tech savvy friends. I designed the logo and we've opened a tuck shop. We are making ~£350 a week so it is going well
There are a few things I will like to work on:
1) A pupil reward system.
The school already as a reward system but it costs like £1k a year. Instead, I'll program one. It will take some time and I will have to learn sockets, the school has like a £30,000 server, I know because I am good friends with the IT technician
. I will be making it in python as that is what I'm good at.
2) Reward Vouchers
This is for the tuck shop. There will be 50p, 75p and £1 vouchers. No change will be given. They all will have a unique barcode (which I have already designed) to prevent fraud. They will be scanned on a computer and automatically checks if it has been used before. I will be using an EAN barcode, I need a barcode that will be short while holding 10 integers.
3) Item Scanning
One of the big problems with the tuck shop is that it is too hard to work out our profits because we don't know how much of each product we ave sold. As a solution, I will create a program that automatically logs what has been sold on an excel file. You will also be able to scan an item with this program and will read reward vouchers.
What we need:
- A barcode scanner ~£12
- A computer - these are lying around the school - any computer will do
- Computer peripherals - E.g: monitor, mouse, keyboard, etc.
Lol I wonder what u guys would charge for this amount of work, I'm doing it for free
Any tips/suggestions? I will be providing updates on anything new.
