WebMatrix - http://www.microsoft.com/web/webmatrix/

 

Web development tools based on open-source applications. Includes tools for blogs, database driven sites and e-commerce. Seems to be based on dot-net.

 

Visual Web Developer Express - http://www.asp.net/vwd

 

Seems to be based on Visual Studio for web development.

 

I have not used them but I know questions about web development come up from time to time so I thought I would list them.

Interesting stuff, thanks for sharing. :beer:

 

Another option is to develop a Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) Browser Application using Visual Studio 2010 Express (or full) version, which launches within a web browser, and has none of the overhead of developing, hosting, and maintaining an actual website, yet provides similar functionality and stunning graphics capabilities.

 

I'm so impressed with WPF, that I've started developing our own "Reference Utility" (read WPF Browser Application) for internal/external/client resources. The compiled files that get deployed to the servers in each office are only +/-10Mb (including images, etc.)! I am also incorporating WPF into our Visual Studio Tools for Office (VSTO), and even some AutoCAD Tool Palettes (which host WPF User Control(s)). Neat stuff. :geek:
