I have very little knowledge in programming. I tried to learn Visual\nBASIC couple of years ago but gave up. The extent of my programming\nskills is laughable. The most complicated program I can make is as\nfollows:\nEnter numeric values in two textboxes, click a button that would add the\nvalues, the answer would appear in a label.\n\nNow I want to give Ruby a shot. I work in a manufacturing company and I\nwant to make a program that handles the following: order entry,\nscheduling deliveries, updating (customers, products, suppliers, etc.)\n, handling customer and supplier accounts, inventory, etc.\n\nI know MS Access alone can handle all the work cited above but I want to\nmake my own program.\n\nAny tips?
