We’ll be at WordCamp Montreal this Saturday! (In fact, for the second year in a row, Microsoft is a gold sponsor for the event.) WordCamp Montreal takes place this Saturday and Sunday, August 28th and 29th in the Agora Hydro-Quebec in the UQAM Coeur-des-Sciences complex (200 Sherbrooke West).
My fellow Developer Evangelist Christian Beauclair will be presenting Microsoft’s new web development environment, WebMatrix, this Saturday at 11:00 a.m.
(At this point, feel free to put on a dark suit and sunglasses, sit back in a comfortable chair, and in your best Laurence Fishburne voice ask: What is WebMatrix?)
WebMatrix is a development environment that gives you:
- An integrated code editor
- A database editor
- Web site and server management tools
- Search engine optimization tools
- Simple web site and application deployment
- Popular open source web applications such as WordPress
- A system that installs and configures web tools and technologies for you
Christian will walk you through the whole experience from start to finish, demonstrate how easy it is to deploy a WordPress blog using WebMatrix.
Want to get your hands on WebMatrix so you can get a head start or follow along with Christian’s demonstration? Download the installer for the WebMatrix beta and get started right away!
