Hey folks, if you haven't seen yet, we just announced ASP.NET WebMatrix, a lightweight tool (15-50MB) for building or customizing Web sites. Here's a
Channel 9 video on it and another epic
Scott Guthrie blog post with all the details. As I've always had a passion for beginning developers from my days working on Visual Studio Express, I think this is great. Not only that, there's a really nice reuse story here in that ASP.NET Web pages using
the Razor syntax can also be created and used in Visual Studio 2010 with ASP.NET MVC projects.
