I'm working on my caspstone project for DeVry, and we want to use a Raspberry Pi as the brains of our project. Our main issue is that none of us are familiar with programming on the Pi. DeVry doesn't do a good job with teaching current languages.
The function of our project will be as follows:
1. Scan tracking number barcode
2. Unlock solenoid locking mechanism
3. Receive new tracking number "keys" from app or browser based interface
4. Box will send notification email or text when package is delivered.
We will ideally be using a Pi Zero W and would need it to be display-less.
Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated!
