Class and database

Here is a snip of the Task class.
I need to work with a DeveloperID and also the Developer's Name
When displaying to UI, I need to show the developer's, but when working with the database I need the developerid

Currently, the task class with get filled with data from the database and my
sql query only has the developerid.

Should I modify the query to include the the developer's name? (I would need to create a join and then pull from the
developer table)

Or should I achieve this another way?
Why or why not?

Public Class Task
   Public ReadOnly Property TaskID() As Integer
            Return mTaskID
        End Get
    End Property

    Public ReadOnly Property ProjectID() As Integer
            Return mProjectID
        End Get
    End Property

    Public ReadOnly Property DeveloperID() As Integer
            Return mDeveloperID
        End Get
    End Property


End Class

JRock, is your intention to build an object-oriented system, more specifically a business-object-oriented system? If so, I'm not sure exactly where to start. At first glance, your Task object looks a bit useless. It has no business meaning whatsoever, but rather looks like some sort of relatinship construct.
If you need to include the Developer Name for the user to see, go ahead and include it.  Since your
properties are ReadOnly, updating the database is not an issue.
