Salesforce1 App

I am new to Salesforce1 development so kindly excuse if the query seems trivial. I have a requirement to build a 2 page registration app for our sales team which they would be using on there IPADS. The first page will take event details and 2nd page will take details of people registring. This data will be saved in Salesforce custom object which would trigger lead creation. Also the app should not require the Sales team to login. 

Is it possible to build such apps using Lightning1? If not can someone point me to correct direction.

Thanks,
Vandana

The sales team doesn't have to login because not everyone in Salesteam has login access to Salesforce or is it that they don't want to login everytime they have to use the app?

If latter, Salesforce1 app should work because once authorized and authenticated for the first time, Salesforce1app retains the auth token for subsequent logins and doesn't prompt the user for authentication info again. A lightning app within Saledofece1 should work for you. Here is the guide that will help you with this https://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/lightning/lightning.pdf

If former, why not just use Web to Lead and host the web page in an external facing website like Force.com site. You can quickly whip up a responsive web app to submit leads using web to lead. Web to lead is precisely for this purpose, not sure why you would need a custom object In between, I am assuming you have other reasons that haven't been explicitly called out here.

You should be able to do this. If you are asking how there's plenty of docs and tutorials on getting started with lightning:

As far as not having to login, the "app" would run inside salesforce1 so they'd have to login using Salesforce 1. I would not be a "standalone" app, though technicially, you may be able to run it in a browser similar to running SF1 in a browser, (not 100% positive though) and they may very well still require login.
