In this talk, Dylan Beattie will show you how to kickstart your web projects using Microsoft's new Web Platform Installer, and how you can deploy your websites and manage your servers using msdeploy.exe.
The Microsoft Web Platform Installer is a free tool that gives you everything you need to build and host web applications on Windows.
It'll configure your web server and database, install developer tools like Visual Studio and the .NET framework, and supports many popular Web application frameworks including ASP.NET MVC, PHP, Drupal, SubText, Wordpress and DotNetNuke
