Let me begin by stating that I have very little programming experience but the inquiry that I have requires mostly advice and direction.
I also want to state that I wasn't sure if this was the right section for this thread but it seemed the most closely related therefore I posted this here.
I need to find out what the approximate cost would be to develop a software that is similar to all the office pool challenges found online during the basketball, football or baseball seasons. Although my idea is slightly different, the basic premise is very similar, I need a software that would allow thousands of users to log on to my website, allow those users to make their selections, track those selections, rate and rank each user, organize and store data efficiently for review, etc.
I know that this would be a lengthy project and costs are difficult to assess from just a brief synopsis but any feedback would be greatly appreciated. I also haven't made any previous commitments therefore a relationship could materialize from this.
Thank you in advance for any and all help.
