Hi all,

Just wondering what poeple who work with SQL development use software wise.. Do you run it all though sql server or do you use something else?

Im looking to start in my SQL journey and wondering if theres any other handy apps that i should look into learning/getting. One that i can think of might be visual studio?

Thanks for any input.

    Depends what RDBMS you want to use.

    Microsoft, Oracle and IBM run the show right now with SQL.
    I suggest starting with MySQL as you will learn the fundamentals of the language.

    You can download SQL Server 2008 Express from Microsoft or if you are a student download a full version on Dreamspark.com

    I would look into Microsoft SQL Server 2008, Implementation and Maintenance (Exam 70-432) and the study materials relating to the certification.

    Hi Thanks for the quick replies..

    I hope to get the MCITPs in development and maintance. eventually. I was mainly just asking if and what poeple used in there day to day work with SQL server (as you pointed out should really mention i am thinking ms sql orly) weather it they only worked in SQL console or if they used other apps to do work in.

    Thanks again for you input
