Question Best way to create a reservation system online...


Hello everyone and thanks in advance...

I have just gotten a new job, in which I am going to be developing a system for reserving lab tables. The idea is to have an image map (of the lab's tables) and text overlay with the reservee's info and dates reserved displayed over the image; as well as a way to reserve the tables in the future, I would like it to update automatically when the date comes etc. This will be on a website. I don't know much coding at all, so I'm going to have to learn a lot to get this done. What way would be the best/easiest to go about doing this?

What backends am I going to need?
Any packages that I could use?
Etc.



Thanks,

I'd say decide if you really are the one who should do this... If the answer is unevitable then look in places like Freshmeat.net and Sourceforge.net for at ready-mades. I'm pretty sure a wheel similar to this was invented and reinvented and reinvented several times over.
