Hello there. I need to make a program that keeps track of peoples names, allows you to add a note to each name and preferably would reorganize whatever you put in by date or by spelling.

My question then is this, where do you suggest I start looking for a program similar to what I'm looking for (I suppose the phonebook application in cell phones is a good match, a supermarket's list of foods and prices would work as well).
As well as, what do you identify as the key points I'm looking to research/program (I'm thinking I'll want to lookup making a list, GUI's for lists, and code for organizing said list)

Thank you for your interest

Pulling out the nouns in your description, you have: Person, Name, Note, and Date. You might start with designing a class to encapsulate that. Look for "has-a" relationships.
