Microsoft takes aim again at Web developers with new WebMatrix tool suite

Back in 2003, Microsoft had a plan to attract Web site developers to the Microsoft platform called WebMatrix. On July 7, 2010, Microsoft brought back that discontinued effort.


Microsoft is making available for download a first beta of the new WebMatrix. The plan — if feedback is positive — is to release the final version before the end of this calendar year.


Like the original WebMatrix, it’s a light-weight Web development tool, with accompanying samples and documentation, in its own right. The new WebMatrix also integrates with Microsoft’s open-source Web Gallery, plus a reference tool for finding potential hosting partners for sites.


WebMatrix is a 15 MB download (50 MB for those who don’t already have .Net 4 installed). It can be installed side-by-side with Visual Studio 2010 and/or Visual Web Developer 2010 Express.


The goal of WebMatrix is: “to make it really easy to get started with web development.”
