Last week I shared a few ideas of possible problems that could be fixed with a little software ingenuity. Let's look at the first of the blogs that helps my dad, which can be read here.
Really, how effective would a program like this be? Who would be a stakeholder in an idea like this?
The obvious choice would be my dad, because working the books would take on a whole new meaning. But honestly, who else would benefit from this? Here's a small list of who and how this program may help
1) Golfers in the club- If the program handles the math properly, the only real issue that could arise from this idea is user error. If everything happens fast, golfers will wait shorter times to get results for that week.
2) Other golf clubs/groups- If the software can be generalized to fit the needs of different groups, why wouldn't another group want to use it?
3) Other sports that have scheduled social outings- Other sports could benefit by tweaking the code just a little to fit what the user wants. Want to know how your weekly tennis outing goes? Just input some data. Want to know who is the best at bocce ball? Look at a histogram of past events.
While staying on topic a bit, the real idea for this program is to get the end user to input as little data as possible to get the results they need. With a little more time, I think this could happen easily. Happy blogging :)
