From 19:00 until around 23-00, Scred’s traditional Night of Code will make another appearance this Thursday evening. It’s short notice, we know, but hopefully some of you can make it. We’ll certainly be there
Come along, give a presentation on some techie topic, or just sit around working on your pet project, or hear about what Scred is doing.
Our Dutch friend Peter Robinett will be coming over, and hopefully he’ll tell us a bit about Scala or some other interesting topic. I could recreate my StartupJam presentation on my Tcl-based web framework.
Time: Thu 29th July, 19:00
Place: The Cable Factory, Tallberginkatu 1E, 5th floor, Room 565.
We’ll provide a few beers! Let us know if you’re planning to come.
Despite the sweltering weather and burning desire to escape to a summer cottage in the middle of nowhere, Scred team got some good work done this July. One particular item that I’d like to highlight is the updated Shop feature. The function used to cause some troubles in the past but is now repaired with a shiny new look.
Any group that needs to sell something online and keep track of the process would find Scred Shops quite useful. Your student group wants to collect membership fees or your theater association wants to sell tickets easily? Create a registration in the ‘Registrations’ tab and it would automatically appear as an item in the shop. Put the link of the shop on your website for all members to see and use in an instant. Your charity wants to sell ribbons to collect funds? Add that directly to your shop with a fancy picture of the ribbon and start selling! While you’re busy sending the items to your customers, Scred is automatically tracking transactions, managing inventory and generating reports.
All that software is still free but you’d need to chip in 1,5% from each transaction on top of PayPal fees. So for every €5 of ribbon you sell you’d need to cough up a mere €0,07 to Scred. Let me know if you can find an easier and cheaper solution for your webshop!
