Tonight, I’m bringing my act to the Hampton Roads .NET User Group, with a presentation on the recently-launched Microsoft WebMatrix. I’ll show what you can do with this lightweight web development environment, from building sites from scratch using the new ASP.NET Web Pages framework and Razor syntax, to downloading, configuring, and deploying one of the many open source applications available in the Microsoft Web App Gallery.

Along the way, we’ll also discuss the new IIS Express, and SQL Server Compact, both of which are useful tools to have in your web development toolkit.

So if you’re in the Tidewater area, drop on by…it’ll be a fun evening of webby geekiness!
