suppose someone granted that bonus, that he wants to develop OSS what would you want to see and why?
I assume either we have a lot of FOSS and we need none or we have a lot of money and need no FOSS! Lol
One problem we have in IT is Ideas. Dats why u see each one of us end up wanting to have a a forum system like jf or a "facebook" version in swahili.
To individual rather than developing a FOSS i think a strategy has to be using already available FOSS to develop solution wich help solve al problem or help managament in particular task or area in our society.
To drop a clue a to my views a solution which i think can really be helpful and usable should be either web based or can be implimented in mobile or both
developing simple Ms excel / qucik office to manage small shop sales an expenditure - Nadhaani ka-system kanaweza utumiwa na wenye maduka kumanage na kukepee recordza baishara zao ndogo ndogo na za kati. Just do research wtu wengi wenye biashara wanatunzaje na urekodi umbukumbu a business zao. .......
Our project wich failed(directory) is also still relevant.
There are a few more ideas........ I will start even selling my project ideas after documentng them lol .
that is good observation. Do you mean cloning excel and make it simpler or system to manage shop simpler than bloated excel? I think the latter is more practical since there is Librecalc or Apache Caalc for excel rwplacement.
Anyone in need/voting for shop management software?
i have not yet done indepth analysis on this tom my observaton and an un-detailed undesrtanding
Most shop ownwer and small busess are still using manual/ paper to record their daily sales and transactions
Most shop onwers own Mobile phones of wich most have them can have excel like appplicatin wich can be used to record
Shop onwers can have computer at thier home so trasaction from shop can.......
Althougn there is a liberal calc or Apache calc tatizo ni je
Do shop owner know how they can use these system to organise a manage their sales in mobile easily, and efficiently
Why not develop a simple application wich will help shop owners manage their trasanction and sale electronically in mobile in MS excel or Ms office .
Yaani nikiona wafanya bishara wengi wadogo wanavyodili na mauzo yao naona kuna kitu kinataiwa kufanyika.
But as u said the latter is not only more practical but there is a room for it to get support from stakeholders and help community in one way or another
let us wait and see inputs from them. I'm sure we have them here!
