I have a project in mind that i'd like to develop with Arduino, wit no experience at all. I'm a programmer, so i'm convinced i will get this done, but the problem is i don't know where to start. About my project:
The Arduino board should send a message to the client/customer to notify that his/her order is ready to be picked up. So when the product number is typed in to the Arduino, via a numpad, the Arduino should automatically get the customer name/number from the database that is related to the product number and send a message that the order is ready.
This is the concept, which i can program by myself. But the thing is, what components do i need to achieve this with Arduino? Could someone give me some advice/reference where to start and how i can achieve this? In fact, is this possible?
Thanks a lot for stopping by and reading my request. I hope someone can help me.
