Writing a local ArcGis application with Javascript

I'm building an ArcGIS application that's locally hosted on our network.  I have no plans of making it a mobile application or making it available via the web.

Simply put, I'm interested in being able to build a browser-based javascript application that allows a few users to enter data (add features to a pre-defined feature class) via their desktops, so I don't have to manually add everything myself in ArcMap.

Anyway, I know nothing of javascript and ArcGIS, but I was hoping there would be a few straight-forward tutorials that might be useful for doing what I want.  I think the ArcGIS JavaScript API tutorials will get me a good start, but I don't think they go quite in the direction I need to go.
