i'm starting to work with MySql for the first time with Visual Studio 2008.
so I need some baby steps explanations because so far i've worked with MS SQL :-)
so this is what i've done so far:
i've installed MySQL Query Builder and MySQL Administrator.
so from what i've read in the web i downloaded MySQL Connector from here: http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mirror.php?id=376646#mirrors
and got my MySQL Data Provider working in Visual Studio 2008:
i clicked Server Explorer --> Add Connection --> MySQL Server
I filled the details & added a new DB connection to the Server Explorer
now, i dont get the full functionality i used to have with MS-SQL
i'd like to know whats the most efficient way of working with MySQL with VS 2008
do you use Diagrams? maybe it's better to use an outside program?
how do you work with Entity Framework or Linq2Sql ?
is there any more tips that can help me as a beginner? maybe some links so i can read more stuff about it?
