Razor and WebPages are new technologies from Microsoft that ship as part of the new WebMatrix suite of components capable of building quite sophisticated applications.

In this session we will take a deep-dive into many of the components that make up WebMatrix, and show how they can be used to build real world Data-Centric Web Applications.

We will cover a number of advanced topics including:

  • How to use Layout options to get a consistent look and feel for the site
  • How to build custom Helpers for common functionality
  • How to use the WebMatrix.Data Helpers to work with Databases
  • How to use the tools included in WebMatrix to build Databases and to analyze your site
  • How to publish your site to the Web.

You will learn:

  • Razor Syntax and how to build more advanced Web Sites with the new ASP.NET Web Pages Framework
  • How to write your own Helpers for use with Razor Web Pages
  • How to use the advanced Helpers – like WebMatrix.Data to build data-centric applications
