Using Incremental Encoders

Hi Forum,
my task is to use two different incremental encoders as sensors to measure angular movement 0 - 360 degreeds and 0 - 90 degreeds. The objective is to count encoder pulses, 10 -12 bit per revolution, to store the value, to understand the direction of movement and to present the value as a 12bit (or 14bit) parallell information.
If anyone knows about similar projects info would be appreciated. What kind of platform would handle this. I have an Uno starterkit available as is today. New to programming but not general electronics.

Google "arduino quadature encoders" or "arduino rotary encoders" for lots of information.

Thank You Sir, will check.
