I'm an absolute novice to coding, so I'm not sure if I'm asking this in the right place. However, I've heard that Ruby is a good place for beginners to start, so I figured I'd ask here and see where I get.
I'm a part time student employee, working for a larger company with a lot of latitude to do fun little projects. Currently, I'm looking to create an employee score card that can be generated from a database of things like shifts missed, sick days, years worked, extra shifts covered, what days are most often missed at what time of year, employee accolades, projects being worked on, and so forth. Extra categories could be added at a later date. Employee metrics could be compared with one another, or metrics could be compared across employees. I don't think I would need any statistical analysis other than to find means/averages. I'd like to be able to hand this off to upper management, and have them be able to just plug in the data, and then have the program spit out a "report card" with graphs and pie charts that give a picture of the employee year-over-year and in comparison to relevant metrics across the company. I know it could be done with the metrics they already have, but it would take lots of time plugging it all into excel, generating graphs, and arranging everything in a report. I have no bias towards a particular OS for running this, as we use both macs and pcs. A web based solution could work too, as they have a server they might be able to host it on. I've attached a very rough visual mock up of what this might look like (drawn in pain, of course). How much work would something like this be? Also, where would I even begin in making this?
