comment Have any of you tried “Basic for Android”?
It dosent matter what anyone else thinks of it. Have a go and see if it works for you. Everyone has diffrent tastes in development environment. It only takes a couple of hours playing to see if you like it.

comment Why do people use programming books?
+1 for "the signal-to-noise ratio can be a bit high sometimes. If you have a rough idea in your head how something is done then you can easily confirm whether the article you are reading is correct. But if you've no clue... you can end up in a bigger mess."

comment Are there any special advantages of SQL Server with Visual Studio?
Its faster to write and they allow you to code at a higher abstraction level. If your using large datasets though i would stick with stored procedures because they are faster.
