I am only “just” getting into the whole SQL Server development thing…!! Now, before you run down to the river bank to pick up some nice blunt stones and prepare to hurl them at me in disgust, allow me to defend myself. I, like most people (saying this helps me feel not-so-lame), have been busy looking into some of the other great stuff that came out (VSTS mainly) around the same time, so I haven’t got around to checking out SQL Server 2005, but now that Clarry finally got around to rebuilding my development machine, I can start in earnest.

So for those of you who are like me (stunningly handsome and intellectually piercing), and just want to get started slowly, check these links out:
