I wrote an Access database about 18 years ago for the data entry of client data. Now I want to develop a web data entry system, so the clients can enter their own data. I have 45 years of traditional programming and Access experience. But I find developing for the web, very different. Can anyone suggest how I can go about learning how the web pieces work together, preferably with examples and how a framework is used. At some point, I'd be happy to pay for teaching, mentoring and support, but in the end I want to be able to support it myself. The application is very simple. There are over 100 clients to support; a few thousand records a month in total; monthly invoicing. It was suggested that I develop with PHP, MySQL and Javascript. I saw a course with Expert Exchange for using CakePHP, so I thought that I would start with that and see where to go after that.
