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

Managing Websites with Web Platform Installer and msdeploy
Dylan Beattie is a systems architect, developer, and Microsoft MVP, who has built everything from tiny standalone websites to large-scale distributed systems. He created his first web page in 1992, and he's been building data-driven interactive web applications since the days of Windows NT 4. He's currently the CTO at Skills Matter in London, where he juggles his time between working on their software platform and supporting their conference and community teams. From 2003 to 2018, Dylan worked as webmaster, then IT Manager, and then systems architect at Spotlight (www.spotlight.com), where his first-hand experience of watching an organisation and its codebase evolve over more than a decade provided him with a unique insight into how everything from web standards and API design to Conway's Law and recruitment ends up influencing a company’s code and culture.
