Abstract: WebMatrix is an all-inclusive, simple web development tool from Microsoft that includes everything you need for website development. You can start with open source web applications, built-in web templates, or your own code. All the tools are in a single unified interface, and you can publish directly with a reliable hosting provider when you’re ready. This talk will discuss the ideal scenarios for using WebMatrix and demonstrate how simple it is to create a web page and publish it to the internet using WebMatrix. I will also show you how easy it is to get a WordPress site up and running and discuss Razor syntax.
