Default Score manager

Description:

After the bench session, it often happens there are a lot of scores. Uploading them all can be quite a drag, so it would be easier if all that can happen at once.

This application should allow mass-submission of results.

- User
- Hardware
- Scores
- Verification (screenshot or verificationlink)

The application does not auto-valid scores and points are awarded only when the score is uploaded.

Sketch:

This is really a first brainstorm. This will probably change a lot.

Language: c#.net 4.0
WPF to do some graphical magic.

Already started developing?
No, even the analysis isnt done yet.

what kind of help you need?
Programmers who want to help can help. Svn will be provided.

I can help.

Using Blend to generate the XAML isn't my strong point, but I can make it functional if someone else can make it pretty.

I'd also recommend hosing it on GitHub. It's infinitely better source control than SVN.

This would be amazing after a weekend bench session... I can't code worth a damn anymore, so unfortunately I can't help but I love the idea.

I'd be happy to help with what I can, but I don't really meet any of the qualifications needed. I know Java and c++ if that helps now or in the future. I'm also quite good at photoshop if you need some graphics.

If you architect this properly, it should be possible to use the same model and view model source to target not only a Windows build, but also Android and iPhone (using MonoDroid and MonoTouch respectively).

I've done it for MonoDroid.

I'm also happy to use my GitHub account to host it, though there's no real need - GitHub is free for open source projects.

It may be possible to port it to a smartphone, but is there any need for that?
Will users want to add scores using a smartphone with a limited screensize. There is a lot of info to fill in and you should be able to add a screenshot or validationfile to the score.

Opensource FTW
But how you will handle system settings thru submissions? Usually scores have different clocks/settings/etc.

Hm. Add a "system preset" feature that allows users to config their entire system and then link scores to it afterwards?

The first step would be to just fill it in as you would on the site.
The next step is to use profiles to auto complete some fields.
Ideal would be to use ocr to read the data from a screenshot.

Quite possibly not.

I guess I'm just thinking more from an OO design purist point of view. It's a good test of sound design and correct pattern adherence for code modules to be independently portable.

The other thing to consider is longevity of the code assets. There's a bit of debate about the future of WPF and Silverlight given what people have seen of Windows 8 and how Microsoft has been shunting teams around.

We just wouldn't want to couple any model functionality with a specific UI implementation...
