I'm oompletely new to WordPress but in a previous life I was a Programmer for a company using Flash and Lingo but it's been a few years and now that I can no longer work I have a large goodwill project I'd like to develop but to begin I'd like to learn by developing an app for Managers of sports teams to conduct an entry draft. I know I can do it in Flash but I really want to learn WordPress and this might be a difficult enough task to give me the knowledge I need for the larger project while helping out a local league.
Basically what I want to do is have an online app that displays the draft results and displays the players still available. The team GMs will likely not all be able to attend so I'd like to allow them the option of attending the draft online so they would have to specify their team and basically click the player they want and submit it to the league commissioner.
Is this possible with WordPress or am I biting off way more than I can chew as a newbie. I have all the time I need to do this but where I'm new, but I don't want to get into this if the draft app can't be done. I still want to learn WordPress so I'll come up withsomething else but I would like to help this league by developing this app if possible.
Any thoughts, comments, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
