This morning at CodeMash in Ohio, Microsoft announced WebMatrix, a very cool new web development tool designed to streamline the process of creating a website. Here’s how WebMatrix works, in their words:
“Users can customize their site using the code and database editor within WebMatrix. Publish your site and databases to your hosting provider or choose from a gallery of hosting providers that are compatible with the web site you build. Once a hosting package is selected and configured, WebMatrix then seamlessly publishes the site and database to the web. With WebMatrix you can use ASP.NET Web Pages including a new easy-to-learn programming model called ‘Razor’, or you can also use PHP or classic ASP.”
So why does this news matter to you as an Eventbrite user? Because they’re launching with a nifty connector to our product called “Eventbrite Helper,” which makes it a snap to promote Eventbrite events within your WebMatrix site. Integrate with your calendar, sell tickets, manage your event info—you can do it all. Pretty great, right?
