Dev Tools (text editor vs VS?)

I'm completely new to DNN, and mostly new to .NET development, although I have many years of ASP.Classic experience.  I am wondering what tools most (all?) of you use?  I have been using Sapien's PrimalScript for years and I'm wondering if I can get away with that for my first DNN module.  Or, do I absolutely need to purchase a copy of VStudio?

Also, does anyone have a "hello world" equivalent PA for DNN?  I'm starting to scour forums and websites looking for DNN coding advice but don't seem to have found the essential tutorial yet.  I would love to get hold of a module that implements an empty container, perhaps with a single call to a database to demonstrate the SQL side of things.

Incidentally, for my first module I want to create some kind of "what's new" feature that can be configured to look at core modules and display things like newest 3 forum posts, newest 3 gallery uploads, etc.  If anyone can offer advice in this area I would be very appreciative.

Everything you do with VS.NET can be done with notepad or gvim or
whatever. It's just a matter of how much time you have vs. how much
money you have :-)

Check this tutorial to get started with a plain ol' text editor:

Incidentally, if you'd googled for 'DNN module notepad' it would have been the first link.

VS.NET 2005 vs VS.NET 2003
