Development platform upgrade question

Posted on 2009-07-04

We have been using Visual Studio Express for the last 12 months or so.

We have recently been asked to develop some service applications which don't appear to be supported in VSE (at least I cannot find any templates for them). W are also looking like we might get some work involving SQL Server.

I have decided that the time has come to upgrade to one of the "higher" editions but am not sure which would best suit a small organisation like ours - we only have 4 developers.

Some advice would be much appreciated.

1. You can develop application involving SQL Server (Express) using VSE.
2. Upgrade to higher version is a good idea and i will recommend to do this because you will have many advanced features and can develop more creative applications.
3. I think you should goto Enterprise or at-least standard edition. Team version will be more expensive

Team version would be too much so I think I'll go for the Pro. It seems to offer a lot more than the Std. My partner will just have to grin and bear it when I tell her the price :)
