More like Person A goes on the site and answers questions, and then Person B goes on the site and does the same. Their answers get put in a database and whenever two people's answers are the same, they're both notified. Something like that. I'll check out Codecademy and start one of their Ruby or Python courses. Thanks!

I guess this could also be an app instead of a site. Do you still recommend going the Ruby/Python route if I wanted to create an app?

Yes, I'd recommend starting with ruby or python (they're fairly similar dor beginners, I know python but only a little ruby). The fundamentals that you learn with them will transfer across a large proportion of popular programming languages.

Alright, cool, I'll go ahead and do that, then. Thanks!
