Paperless Kiosk For Conferences
The problem is that we get to conferences with way too much paper and since paper is relatively inexpensive to print but costly to store and transport, we end up throwing away a lot of it when the event wraps up and that makes me feel bad all the times. The material that gets printed is available on the Marketing Portal.
I don't have a definitive solution for the problem so the candidate should be somebody interested in
- precisely frame the problem
- investigate the state of the art: I'm sure that we're not the only ones that noticed and some (partial) solutions may exist
- take inspiration from the best solutions found, add anything needed and start coding
The expected outcomes for this project go from learning how to solve social problems, learn how to interact with multiple stakeholders (since the needs of the Marketing and Events team will have to be taken into account) and eventually also write some code. So coding a solution is only a part of this idea, maybe not even the main one.
The candidate may be interested in learning about market research, interviewing multiple stakeholders and develop a working plan with them. Since I'm not a coder myself I'd be more interested in the initial research because I myself am not an expert in this field. I'd be happy to provide help to find experts for coding problems, should they arise.
