SQL Server & Visual Studio 2005

Posted Friday, November 18th, 2005 11:09:00 am
Took my first crack at SQL Server and Visual Studio 2005 tonight. My first thought: It's a lot of fluff. Things are prettier, but they don't do too much differently.

They completely redesigned the client tools for SQL Server 2005, and I'm not entirely sure they got it right yet. There's some annoyances I've had using it at work, including how projects are done with the connections that you have to open every time, and there's a bunch of bugs with the "save password" check box that doesn't seem to always save.

Visual Studio 2005 on the other hand is for the most part bug-free from what I can tell. I did a bunch of ASP.Net 2.0 work tonight, and the master page solution is simply awesome. I don't like the way namespaces work, though, and I found it difficult at first to figure out the coding architecture.

I can't wait to start converting some VB.Net solutions over to see the improvements to that language. Perhaps the Google Desktop project I've been working on will finally work. Hmmm...
