    Hi Everyone

    Once more i am on this question again and really Need help from you all.

    I am a Software Design Engineer working in India on ASP.Net - Technology with SQL SERVER 2000 as a back end.

    Our company is not so big as it is in its establishing stage but we have one-two Good
    US based Projects but the technique we use is not upto date and there is nothing more tricky(best use of technology) in it.

    Having 1.5 yr of experience i donot feel that i am growing to that pace.

    Now i feel that i should move completely to DATABASE - with in 6 months or so.

    Some say ORACLE is the Best and some SQL SERVER - the Best.

    Should i continue on both FRONT END as well as BACK END or DATABASE ONLY [?]

    I am expecting a Positive & Genuine Suggestions from all of you.

    Regards

    As you are ASP.NET programmer, you can continue with it and learn SQL Server. If you want to completely move to Back End side you need to become DBA which I think is somewhat difficult or take more time than becoming Master in Front End Applications. Better you learn Both Front End and Back End [<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt=':)' />]<br /><br />Madhivanan<br /><br />Failing to plan is Planning to fail

    I feel it's like doing MBA where you do major in one and minor in all.

    As you are already in middle of front end programming so do major in that and minor in SQL Server and others.

    Don't be shaky

    There is nothing like the "best" database. Both, Oracle and SQL Server, have their pros and cons. Which one you choose, depends on either what the shop you work for is running or what is required for the job. As this is SQL Server land here, guess what almost everyone here will suggest as database system?

    Hi,

    The Best Greetings From Raaj...According to ur query I give my best suggestion to u
    as, i think u r flexible with database rather than frontend.U can move farward to database programmer and acting like a 'DBA' plays a vital role in the organization, and u will become a key member to the company.

    Coming to the difference between oracle and SQL SERVER, i suggest u to be with sql server than oracle, bcoz already have 1.5 years of experience with microsoft applications and

    have a look here for differences

    With Regards
