    First, I have zero experience with app development (great start, I know). I have some basic web development and coding experience from a few years ago but haven't kept up with it. However, I am fairly tech savvy and pick up on things pretty quickly. To save myself time and frustration, I figured tapping into the expertise of the community would be a great place to start.

    Here's the background situation. My company does wholesale distribution of food products. We have a grocery store-esque customer that is requiring we provide them with any UPC code we send them ahead of time so they can make sure its in their system so it scans at the register. And we buy products from every imaginable supplier so one week we might have blueberries with one UPC and the next week another.

    What I want to do is have a simple app that can be linked to a scanner (either using a device camera or a specific scanning gun) that scan the UPC, checks it against our existing UPCs that we've provided (most preferably stored in a google sheet table), and simply returns either valid if it currently exists in the table or error if it does not.

    So, my question is: does anyone know of something similar that exists like this? If not, what are some recommendations on where I should start?

    As a beginner, I appreciate any and all comments.

    Thanks in advance!
