Announcing WebMatrix – a small, simple and seamless stack for Web developers

Today my team launched an exciting new project called WebMatrix

Seamless, small and best of all free, WebMatrix includes a complete Web development stack that installs in minutes and elegantly integrates a Web server, database and programming frameworks into a single, integrated experience.

Use WebMatrix to streamline the way you code, test, and deploy your own ASP.NET and PHP Web site, or start a new site using the world’s most popular open source apps like DotNetNuke, Umbraco, WordPress, or Joomla.

WebMatrix is the easiest way to learn Web development and makes it simple to build and publish Web sites on the internet. Start with Web standards including HTML, CSS and JavaScript and then connect to a database or add in dynamic server code using the new simplified Razor syntax to build ASP.NET web pages simply and efficiently.

WebMatrix includes IIS Developer Express, a built-in Web server that shares the same code base that ships in Windows Server and powers some of the world’s biggest Web sites. IIS Developer Express has been fine tuned to work specifically for developer environments, supports all of the key features of the full version of IIS, without the complexity of a full Web server.
