I'm looking for suggestions on a technology stack to use for a simple web application to track expenses that (a) must be hosted on a Ubuntu server and (b) use a MySQL database. I've been asked to provide suggestions, but not actually work on the project.
The company I work for has volunteered to do some pro-bono development for a non-profit. The non-profit needs a very simple web application that tracks expenses by office location (they have 5) and expense category (~25 categories). So, basically a crud application with a few different business objects. We will then need to do some very basic reporting.
The only developers assigned to work on this project are a pair of junior developers who have ONLY worked in the .NET stack (MVC4, WCF, SQL Server). I floated the Mono idea, but that was shot down, and not an option.
Any recommendations would be very helpful. I've been looking for a solution where I can find a working example (open source) online to build upon.
