In this session, we’ll take a tour of what is possible with WebMatrix, including how to easily build and customize web applications based on open source applications like WordPress, Umbraco, Orchard or many others from the gallery. You’ll also see some of the new features that make it easy to build web applications from the ground up, including the new inline programming syntax called ‘Razor’ and the wide range of helpers that make difficult or repetitive web development tasks easy to do. We’ll also walk through creating your own helpers that make is simple for them to plugin to your website’s Web APIs and build experiences powered by your services.
