This is a broad question which raises many issues in implementing a solution. To narrow down your problem area, please tell us what you have done so far. Do you, for instance, already have an application developed in Base to add people to a check-in list? Have you already got a barcode scanner?

Depends, but I would write the script in Python. The following is documentation which may help you do that. But if you have never programmed before (a hint from you username), I don't think this helps you much.
