Students Design Eagle Store Computer Program
Seniors James Madden and Matt Neary (above, modeling our ties this week) teamed up in their Honors JAVA computer science class this year to further develop a program for the Eagle Store written by Nicky DiCarlo '13 to decipher bar codes and track sales. Their evolution of the program tracks inventory and trends and provides point of sale functions such as processing credit cards or making change and receipting. Madden and Neary also made the program cloud-based so that it can be accessed from any device.
While Madden worked on the front end, the programming, Neary worked on the backend, the hardware.
"I started knowing very little about a pr
ogram like this and now I'm very confident going into college," said Madden. "It's been great because not only did I develop an interest in this type of program but also the knowledge and skills."
"This was a learning experience in collaboration," said Neary, who has his own company creating and selling apps and websites. "I'll take that forward into college and my career."
