New to the forum, went through the first very informative sticky, unfortunately still very much lost.
My question is simple so I'll get right to it: I need to create a relatively simple web application that selects some things from a database based on user input and outputs something as a result on the screen.
I don't have anything yet, so I'm guessing I need to learn: some form of SQL to create the database and some programming language to create the app.
To show an example, think of a database of something simple like cooking recipes, which the user selecting some criteria using the web app, and the app just showing the user the recipes from the database that match his choices.
In the future, the website with the app must accept user logins etc. Possibly even be ported to android and iphone with the database remaining unchanged online, just the app itself being different.
I have no previous knowledge of programming languages, and just basic knowledge of HTML / JS, and some idea how databases work from MS Access.
But I have loads of time (the project is not time constrained in anyway, I'm doing this just to learn).
And I need suggestions which language to choose and where to start learning. Unless I can use some ready made web framework/thing wordpress-like that can do the work for me.
Thanks for your time and sorry for making a simple question so verbose.
