WebMatrix – Introduction

Microsoft has just introduced the new version of WebMatrix. When this post is written it’s still in BETA version.

If you were ASP.NET developer when it’s in 1.1 version, you might ever tried WebMatrix, it was free as it’s today. At that time there was no Express edition of Visual Studio and WebMatrix was the free tool to develop ASP.NET website if you didn’t want to buy Visual Studio.

No… this post doesn’t want to talk the old version of WebMatrix, but the new one.

What Is It?

WebMatrix is everything you need to build Web sites using Windows. It includes IIS Developer Express (a development Web server), ASP.NET (a Web framework), and SQL Server Compact (an embedded database). It streamlines Web site development and makes it easy to start Web sites from popular open-source apps. The skills and code you develop with WebMatrix transition seamlessly to Visual Studio and SQL Server.

Why Use It?

You will use the same powerful Web server, database engine and web framework that will run your Web site on the Internet, which makes the transition from development to product seamless. Beyond ensuring everything just works, WebMatrix includes new features that make Web development easier.

Who’s it for?

WebMatrix is for developers, students, or just about anyone who just wants a small and simple way to build Web sites. Start coding, testing, and deploying your own Web sites without having to worry about configuring your own Web server, managing databases, or learning a lot of concepts. WebMatrix makes Web site development easy.

Code Without Boundaries

WebMatrix provides an easy way to get started with Web development. With an integrated code editor and a database editor, Web site and server management, search optimization, FTP publishing, and more, WebMatrix provides a fresh, new Web site development experience that seamlessly bridges all the key components you need in order to create, run, and deploy a Web site.

As your needs grow, the code and skills you develop can seamlessly transition to Visual Studio – Microsoft’s premier development suite.
