WordCamp Montreal and WebMatrix

Wordpress logoWe’ll be at WordCamp Montreal this Saturday! (In fact, for the second year in a row, Microsoft is a gold sponsor for the event.) WordCamp Montreal takes place this Saturday and Sunday, August 28th and 29th in the Agora Hydro-Quebec in the UQAM Coeur-des-Sciences complex (200 Sherbrooke West).

My fellow Developer Evangelist Christian Beauclair will be presenting Microsoft’s new web development environment, WebMatrix, this Saturday at 11:00 a.m.

(At this point, feel free to put on a dark suit and sunglasses, sit back in a comfortable chair, and in your best Laurence Fishburne voice ask: What is WebMatrix?)

WebMatrix is a development environment that gives you:

  • An integrated code editor
  • A database editor
  • Web site and server management tools
  • Search engine optimization tools
  • Simple web site and application deployment
  • Popular open source web applications such as WordPress
  • A system that installs and configures web tools and technologies for you

Christian will walk you through the whole experience from start to finish, demonstrate how easy it is to deploy a WordPress blog using WebMatrix.

Want to get your hands on WebMatrix so you can get a head start or follow along with Christian’s demonstration? Download the installer for the WebMatrix beta and get started right away!
