Visual Web Developer Express and Visual Basic Express have starter kits available for data-driven web sites that utilize SQL Server 2005 Express Edition.  Visual Web Developer is another Express product geared toward hobbyists, enthusiasts, and students with the user-friendly features of visual web and database design. 


Take a look at the Personal Web Site kit with its secure log-in capabilities and photo gallery feature as well as the Club Web Site kit which can create community announcements, photo albums, and an online calendar of events.  For a fun media collection application, the slick Amazon-Enabled Movie Collection utilizes Amazon.com’s Web services to dynamically search for movie titles to add to your personal collection.  A more business-oriented application, the Time Tracker Starter Kit, allows users to keep track of time spent on a project and handle multiple resources and projects.
