Topic: I NEED YOUR HELP - Web Based Ruby Application
Hi all let me give you the scenario first, i have been tasked by a friend to build an internal site for his staff and the use of the company cars, after scanning the internet i have come to the conclusion that i want to write this in ruby but my ruby knowledge is low, Im an HTML guy and i have little knowledge in C++ and even less in ruby.
I want to build a system which can provide cars to its staff for business use when needed, Some cars can be allocated to specific staff members on a long-term basis and some need to be kept in a pool for ad hoc or on the day (just in case) use, of course the latter can only be used one day at a time and not booked out for long periods (and cannot be booked in advance, only on the day).
The 2 primary users of the application will be any staff member booking a car from the pool, and staff in the Transport Office who are responsible for maintaining all the data and for allocating the long-term cars. For this i would like to have two webpages, one which can allocate a car from a database of cars for one day at a time and another which will allow access to the database list to change the car details like new services dates and of course adding and deleting old and new vehicles, and an interface for issuing long term vehicles to staff.
The above is the minimum required and i would be so grateful for anybody's help, if possible i would also like to try and implement a system where i could flag a vehicle for the staff to see when it is for sale and no longer in use or needed.
