My questions for you guys are: What exactly will I have to know to be able to produce something that is functional and presentable? Also, if you can recomend any instructor led programs out there that I can put in my budget?
I know there are a lot of free courses offered out there but since I'm kinda putting my ass on the line and have to have something to show at the end of this I would rather go with some training that is instructor led.
EDIT: Basically my idea is to create a pretty standard web map with some of our larger clients data displayed in layers that can be turned on and off. One of the key concepts is the ability to print the current view to a standardized template. The demand for this functionality comes from our project managers who often times will need a hard copy map as an exhibit in a meeting but wait until the last minute to tell us in the GIS dept. With just 3 full time analysts this can be a major issue.
EDIT2: I also plan to use this project as a jumping off point to get into much more advanced development, so the more I can learn the better.
