I am looking to create a web page for one of my teachers that includes him or other students being able to enter data into some sort of form and then having it be displayed, so which language would be a good one to do something like this in?
Other people's suggestions are good...or you could check out my tutorial on using Django (python) :)
It is not quite finished but should be done pretty soon :)
It depends on whether you want to save the data - if you do, using
HTML, CSS, JS probably won't work (unless you're using
Well the best language for that would be either PHP, or Python both great backend programming language, and you would have to have an SQL framework such as MySQLi or something similar, although having user input being displayed back onto a page, is a huge security no-no unless you know what your doing, so make sure no data is stored on this website.
@tperr If it's from the same computer/browser then saving it as a cookie
or local storage
If you you need it to be persistent across different computers then yes you would need a database to do that. I recommend PHP/MySql to get started.
