Hey guys, hope this isn't too much of a n00b question
I'm mainly a front end developer that has recently started to do some back end programming. The script I'm working on is pretty simple (in theory). I just don't know where to begin and was hoping for some advice that will lead me in the right direction.
-The script is essentially a simple data logger.
-Everyday the user logs into the website, where it brings them to a single page. -The user then checks an input box and enters a value into another input box -That number is stored in the database
That's pretty much it. It seems pretty simple, but the problem is that there needs to be one administrator account that can read all the inputs of all other users.
My Question: What is the BEST way to start this project? I have absolutely no clue on how to start it. Should I create classes for each of the functions (user logging in, user inputting value)? Should I use a framework? What would be the first steps you would take as a programmer.
I know this isn't a specific question, but like I said, I'm new to writing scripts that involve dealing with the backend and all that fun stuff. Thanks in advance.
