Looking for a ready-to-use website template? Want to display a Twitter feed? Need to show a video on your site?

WebMatrix is a brand new web development tool from Microsoft that includes everything you need for website development! Whether you want to start with ASP.NET, open source web applications, or just a standard template, you can build your website quickly and easily using Microsoft’s newly launched WebMatrix. 

With WebMatrix on your desktop, you’re using the same powerful Web server, database engine, and frameworks that your Web site on the internet uses. This ensures that your transition from development to production is smooth and seamless. WebMatrix supports integration with Visual Studio into your workflow (great for debugging and profiling), and features a SQL Server Compact database.

WebMatrix lets you code, test, and deploy both ASP.NET and PHP applications side by side.

Where do I start? Just download and install WebMatrix using the Microsoft Web Platform Installer. You’ll be up and running less than 5 minutes! Once WebMatrix is installed, we make it simple to get and install the latest version of your favorite free web applications such as WordPress, Joomla!, DotNetNuke and Orchard.
