WebMatrix is a free, lightweight set of web development tools that provides the easiest way to build websites.

WebMatrix is a fully integrated development environment for building ASP.NET web applications. Developing ASP.NET websites would require using tools such as Visual Studio, IIS and SQL Server Management Studio all of which comes with commercially licensed products. WebMatrix is Microsoft’s FREE development tool attempts to integrate a coding tool, database development tool and web server admin tool all in one simple application for rapid web application development.

WebMatrix incorporates several new technologies and tools from Microsoft which should make development faster and more simple. IIS Express which is incorporated into WebMatrix is a fully compatible but scaled down version of IIS meaning that developers can safely, easily deploy application that are only tested using the development environment. SQL Server Compact Edition 4 is the database incorporated into WebMatrix, the major innovation in SQL Server CE 4 is that it does not require any database server to run, you simply build the tables etc in WebMatrix and just ftp the binaries created and the database will run (even on shared servers without admin privileges). Having WebMatrix developer could perform simple coding, testing and easily deploy web applications using FTP or Web Deploy method into Production environment.

Start from open source web applications, built-in web templates or just start writing code yourself. It’s all-inclusive, simple and best of all free. Developing websites has never been easier.
