I was a volunteer
at Computer Reach for about a year.
During that time I helped them refurbish computers and flash linux
operating systems on them. I also assited in training the new volunteers
on the inventory process. During this time I realized that the process
I was teaching could be almost entirely automated. This would eliminate
the need to spend as much time training people, and allow the volunteers
to be more effective. I originally wrote it in python
and later re-wrote it in C++
. At the time (2014
I had no formal education in computer science concepts so it is a nice
reminder of how far I've come.
