Continuing with the Week of WebMatrix 2, today's show focuses on all the features that help PHP developers. Here, Thao Doan takes us a on a deeper dive with WebMatrix 2 and customizes a mySQL-backed custom PHP site. If you're doing PHP and have been hunting for a better IDE to use, take a look at this video, which shows off PHP code completion, mySQL automatic install, and all sorts of other goodness. At the end of the show, Thao publishes her site up to Windows Azure Web Sites in one click. Less than 30 seconds later, her site—and database—are running live in the cloud.
