    Question Can I do this and how long would it potentially take to make ?

    Hello and thank you to anyone who is willing to answer my question

    I want to create my own program that would improve my work performance. The program I want to create would be a simple truck load planner, I have attached an image to see what I'm talking about. So my question is could I do it using Java script and how long it would take for me to learn to do it?


    PS: I'm a complete novice when it comes to writing code, but I'm willing to spend several months to learn.

    do it using Java script
    java script is not the same as java.

    You can write most applications in java.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Thank you for the reply, but do you know how long it would take for someone to become proficient enough with Java to create something like this? Also do you know any good tutorials that you could direct me to?

    How long it takes depends on the individual and their background and dedication to learning. I suspect it could take months to a year.

    Oracle has a tutorial: https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/index.html

    It all depends on your skills and ability. A well experienced person would do it in few months, while a person who don't have much practical experience would struggle to do it even in a year.

    It depends on your skills as a programmer as most have said while i applaud your planning once you learn a language you will have to do alot more planning, i am not by any means trying to scare you away try see if you can find something that has been written like this before.... get some ideas as with programming you always plan something to the tee but there are always issues debugging is 60 percent of your time ...yes i just made that up . Also language is crucial , i dont want to name any because i might get crucified by die hard python fans or java fans but do your research on programs.... its a skill worth learning and will serve you well in the future
