WebMatrix makes it easy to create, customize, and publish your website. It’s 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. This talk will briefly introduce you to WebMatrix before diving into demos of how WebMatrix makes it easy for two potential users to create, customize, and publish a WordPress blog and a photo gallery site. You will learn how to use Razor syntax, set up membership, leverage useful helpers, and other tips and tricks to get these two different types of sites (one from the Web Gallery, one from a template) up and running.
