I am totally new to all this programming malarkey. I am half way through an engineering doctorate and need to write an application to collect data.
I have no idea whether it will be possible for me to learn the skills to do this in a short amount of time or whether i should try and outsource the work.
As far as i can gather, C++ seems to be the way forward.
what i need is:
A survey pop up app that repeats every hour
Respondants select one option from a list (preferably by clicking)
The app closes and data is sent to a shared file where i can collect.
I need to be able to tailor the list of options periodically and ideally, also tailor to suit different groups of respondants. (I want to know how people are spending there time/ which projects they are working on).
Is it crazy to try and learn to do this myself or should i outsource it?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
