Hi everyone,

I've been reading this forum for a while and I found a wealth of information. There is still a lot to read and I'm sure I'll discover more valuable info and awesome likeminded people.

I'd like to give something back. While I'm still far far away from having entrepreneurship experience, I do have some experience in software development. I've been in the field for nearly 15 years, worked on a bunch of start-ups, worked with clients and devs all over the world, been leading teams, projects and so on. The only thing I haven't done is my own product (but I guess that's why I'm here)

My top expertise is web development with ruby on rails on the backend and EmberJS on the frontend, but I've been playing with a lot of tech and I've been involved at different levels with the companies I worked with. I should able to offer an educated and honest opinion here and there on topics like what tech stack to choose, how to hire devs, how to handle devs and others.

I know there are plenty of software engineers on this forum already but I hope that I can add a little bit of value myself.

Happy Monday!

I've had a couple of ideas bouncing around in my head and wanted to talk about them from a coding standpoint, since I know almost nothing about programming.

The one idea that I desire most is having live GPS tracking on a package that I order online. I've looked it up online and see that there are disposable trackers that you can put in packages and track them live but I want to go a different direction.

I was thinking of somehow, coding a scanner device that when it scans the tracking number on your package, it will automatically attach your tracking number to a GPS either in the handheld scanner itself that stays with the truck/carrier at all times, or attaches it to a GPS on the truck.

This would add great value to everybody that is ordering packages online these days and wants to know exactly when the package will arrive so they can plan their day accordingly.

Obviously, I have posted this idea to the public at the risk of somebody stealing it and running but this is one of my first major fastlane ideas and I want to make sure I'm thinking with the correct mindset.
