I’m going to try something new today. Usually I focus on one blog post and its thread, but today, given all the news about the new WebMatrix beta release, I’m going to do a “roundup” post, aka link curation, etc. But instead of dry links, I though I’d add a visual element to it and provide thumbnails and of the posts. My intent is to give you a quick way to gage the given post’s breadth and give you a feel for what’s there... To help you spend your click-through’s wisely (we only have so many clicks left in our lives and so must spend them well… so something like that… ;)
Here’s a few, of many, WebMatrix posts I came across this morning (in no particular order).
|The Gu does his usual rock’n post with a nice pictorial WebMatrix introduction and usage walk through. |
Little on text, lots on showing your many of its features and capabilities.
|Paul provides a brief overview of WebMatrix and included technologies|
|Scott walks you through downloading and building your first web site with WebMatrix. |
Make sure you scroll down and check out the Related Links section. There’s a ton of links to more information, videos, walk-through’s, tutorials etc
|Mike walks us through creating our first WebMatrix based web site, using the new SQL CE database/data binding and the new view engine, Razor.|
|Bob highlights his top 10+1 WebMatrix features|
|David provides a nice overview on how all the new pieces, MVC, Razor, ASP.Net all fit together with WebMatrix|
|A brief “Introducing” post via IIS.Net|
|Come on, it’s Mary Jo!|
|How can you go wrong with a post title like that! lol |
Mike starts even farther back in the “Install” thread, starting from the Web Platform Installer and going forward from there to usage and deployment.
