Question

MySql

I work in an office and I want to impress the bosses. I want to build a platform to display the status of various tasks assigned to employees. I know there are products that you can buy but I also know that this can be done relatively easily. I want to be able to go to a place, browser I'm assuming but that's how little I know, and update information that will then be sent to a display in another room. I think this can be done using PHP and MySql but I'm just regurgitating the few key words that I've stumbled upon. Can anyone please tell me where I need to start so I can learn how to build everything from scratch? Will I need a Pi?

Both PHP and MySQL run perfectly under Windows. You can even make Windows a webserver, so you can actually see the program you built in a browser.
It's up to you to decide if you want to use standard MySQL utilities to enter data into the database, or another PHP program.

You might need the cooperation of the IT staff to install your stuff on the company network.
