Funnily enough, i don't know too much about the project. All i know is that involves a database and a web interface for people to compare data.
The database will be SQL Server and alot of the programming done in VB.NET
I'm meeting the people that have started the project to find out what they have done so far. I didn't want to appear stupid when i met them so thought I should brush up on all things databasey (this is my first development project).
I couldn't get a copy of SQL server, so i was going to download a copy of MySQL and go from there.
I'm thinking now though, that maybe if i just brush up on the SQL Language and database structure in general, that may suffice for now.
When i join the project and get stuck on SQL, i know where to come for advice... )
Thanks for the info so far though.
