Melbourne Makerspace has been using the open source Seltzer (built at
another hackerspace!) specifically for running 'spaces with little to no
training and volunteer time.
I am currently trying to build a member photo module that lets other
members pull up the photos of a selected member since we have so many
members now it's hard to remember their names!


I wrote some PHP that queries the Seltzer database that is called from a
Python script I wrote that runs on a raspberry Pi with an RFID scanner we
use for our front door lock.
It's been working great for over a year now!
