ASPimping ain’t easy

When I first started developing websites it was
a lot easier than today. Back then the biggest issue
around was the addition of the table tag. Nowadays websites
with 100,000 pages changing daily have more important issues.

But don’t be intimidated by the size. The extremely large
websites can use the same code that runs on a not so
large website. SQL is basically the same across the
spectrum. Whether it’s Access or Oracle they both have
the same underlying structure.

I recommend first learning SQL for whatever platform you use.
Microsoft has a great reference at msdn.microsoft.com
for Access and SQL server. Oracle and IBM also have similar
references on their websites.

Second, automate everything. The more things are automated
the more time you have to concentrate on new ideas.

Third, don’t let the big brains intimidate you. Everyone
had to start somewhere and Nobody knows it all. Read books,
post messages on lists, scour the web.

Soon you will be ASPimping with the best of them.
