A makerspace is a community center that provides technology, manufacturing equipment, and educational opportunities to the public. Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) is a Singapore-based polytechnic which awards diplomas. NYP is creating a makerspace. A makerspace has many tools and work areas. NYP wishes to manage them using QR codes. NYP wishes to make a mobile application which helps its makerspace users use work areas and tools by scanning QR codes attached to the tools and work areas. NYP staff want to create a web application to manage the content on this mobile phone. NYP staff will assign QR codes to tools and work areas using this web application. They will also create educational videos on how to use tools and make it viewable on the mobile application. The mobile application will also act as a platform for posting projects, ideas, and collaborating with like-minded people to work on a project. If you are hired for this job, you will be tasked with writing a Phonegap/Cordova application that will meet the requirements (see link below). The mobile app will meet these requirements by scanning QR codes, displaying videos without using external mobile video players and interacting with online APIs for login, authentication and other features of the website.
UPDATE: This project is a government project, and I am a government contractor. So I will only know if I got this tender after the bidding ends on February 3rd, 2016. And I will only start hiring after that. I am only soliciting quotes now, so I can bid the lowest price to the government because there are 21 other contractors competing for this project. Apologies for not stating this earlier. I will keep this job post open until after the tender is awarded so that I can hire the applicants from this set.
