I was looking for some rough guidance re; making a race timing app. for Android phone using Windows Azure to build it.
Basically, there will be a list of riders, each with a start time, finish time, and the resultant race time.
WhatI envisage happening is that the rider waits at the Start point and the marshall hits a RECORD (start) TIME button using this app on their Android phone.
Then the rider arrives at the finish point and the marshall who is waiting there presses a RECORD (finish) TIME button using this app on their Android phone.
Both phones write their respective Start/Finish times to a web-based Azure SQL database, the database then simply returns the race time (FINISH TIME minus START TIME) for that rider.
Appreciate any pointers/rough guidance!
