Timetrial Software Update

Post date: Jan 29, 2012 4:19:08 PM

The winter months have been kind to software hobbies.

I found the time to put a TT solution together that I am fairly happy about in Django as a web app.

The key advantage is that you can do registration with multiple staff simultaneously, then assign start times in a few seconds, then execute the results (very nice!).

However, the web app solution is a bit much compared to an Excel spreadsheet. The installation is painful, and configuring a web server is a lot to expect for a small event.

So... I have decided to write a desktop implementation that talks to the database directly. By using the same database structure, the desktop and web solution will work with the same data.

Stay tuned - I will be posting something in the next few weeks.
