Experts,

My client is requesting a web-based program that can take customer orders for cell phones, etc.  Shouldn't be too complicated.

I'm wondering if I can whip together something like this in Sharepoint, or use Sharepoint in conjunction with .NET. Or maybe there's another tool that can make developing an app like this easier so I don't have to start at the ground floor?

If you are already familiar with SharePoint then that would give you a good start. But development in ASP.NET is pretty easy now anyway. We do the Point Clicky Draggy Droppy development in .NET. You could use masterpages to drammatically reduce the amount of work.

I assume masterpages are built in templates?  Haven't seen those yet.

Does Sharepoint have its own capacity to link to a SQL Server database, or do you have to integrate .NET to do that?

Masterpages are a way to combine all the shared functionality of the pages into one single page and then reference that page instead of adding that functionality to each page separately. For example, if you add a banner at the top of the masterpage, this banner would appear automatically in all the inherited pages. It works like master slides in the powerpoint.
I am not sure if sharepoint can directly connect to sql server to be honest.
