I'm looking for the best way to build a simple scheduler that will be able to render a visual calendar of the last 90 days and events that occurred during that span of time.
We will need to store the contents of the calendar in a database. I'm thinking a flat file database (plaintext file) is best since it's not that complex and I don't know MySQL at all and my PHP knowledge is limited. The visual part will be easy since I can use HTML and CSS.
This is for a small business that needs to track employee attendance history for the past 90 days.
We also want to make another calendar in a similar fashion that allows employees to log in from home to check their work schedule for the coming weeks.
I'm asking the community's opinions:
Is PHP a practical choice for building such a tool? Or does anyone know of a better-suited existing solution?
