The Free Web Publishing and Development Toolkit: Microsoft WebMatrix

The Free Web Publishing and Development Toolkit: Microsoft WebMatrix | iEduc | Scoop.it

WebMatrix is a free Web development downloadable toolkit that installs in minutes and elegantly brings together a Web server, a database, and programming frameworks into a single, integrated experience.

WebMatrix lets you code, test, and deploy both ASP.NET and PHP applications side by side.

 

WebMatrix provides inside the toolkit a world of popular and free open-source Web applications, including DotNetNuke, Umbraco, WordPress, Joomla!, and more.

Simply select which application you want from the built-in gallery, and WebMatrix handles the downloading and installation of your new Web site on your web server.

 

WebMatrix can also be used to find a Web host that fits your requirements and which can use the built-in publishing support for FTP, FTPS, and WebDeploy.

 

WebMatrix includes a small, embedded database called SQL Server Compact that can live with your Web site code and content. Use it to start building your next Web site, and when you’re ready to publish, just copy the database file from your computer to any Web server and it will run— no extra installation required.

The days of hand-editing configuration files and making sure you have all the right components are long gone. 


WebMatrix is free.

This is one area that I can help with. I offer a variety of therapies which will help to reduce your stress levels and give you the much needed time out even 10 minutes and I offer these therapies not only in a variety of clinics but due to the lack of time people have I can come to the office environment. During the therapy you remain fully clothed and I work with you to cause the least disruption to the work being carried out. As little as 10 minutes can make a huge difference to a persons life. We think we have not got the time but can you really afford for the negative effects of stress to build up?
WorkplaceIncentives's curator insight, May 12, 2013 11:19 PM

Stress is often seen as the result of an event. The event causes stress. However this isn't true. We as individuals have the ability to control whether or not we 'get stressed'. It is in fact our perception of any event or 'thing' that may cause us to be stressed. Should we perceive an event in a positive light or choose to frame the event constructively, we can prevent ourselves from becoming stressed. As you're reading this insight you might be thinking that it may seem like we're stating the obvious and yet so many people, probably including yourself, get stressed on a regular basis...

Jesse Wieser's curator insight, May 20, 2013 7:43 PM

My thoughts

After reading this article, I find the mini-relaxation plans suggested are a huge help when your running on little to no time and just need a quick breather. The relaxation plan in this article goes into detail about what can you do to relieve some stress in 1 minute, 2 minutes, 3 minutes, etc. which can be very helpful even trying these plans in between classes on account of the fact school can be very stressful at times. What I enjoyed the most about this article is the 2 minute relaxation plan, where I'll be taking 1 deep breath for every number I count down too since deep-breathing helps relieves stress and some of the bad toxins in your body.

Interestingly, the guidelines our grade 4 students created last year were just as applicable to middle (and high) school as they were for elementary. We ended up using almost all of the guidelines from last year, with just a few minor re-phrasing issues and consolidation.

Thanks, Nik, and sorry if I raised unnecessary doubts about this service; I suppose we all need to boost our digital literacy, and being able to figure out if a web tool is safe is one of the key skills, isn't it? Cheers!
Nik Peachey's comment, April 29, 2013 8:10 AM
Hi Amadeu. No problem. It's always a good idea to check every source before signing up. I work very quickly and often forget so it's good to remind me. I usualy stay away from services which require me to sign in through another service, but this looks really good so I made an exception.

A Wonderful Showcase of Useful Information on How Google Search Works: Curated by Google

Robin Good's curator insight, March 3, 2013 2:30 PM



A fantastic, rich and elegantly organized showcase of everything you may possibly want to know about how Google Search works. From policies to algorithms, Google curates in this wonderfully designed website, all of his best assets and information to further educate its global audience.


Ever wondered how Google’s search works? The company launched a new website Friday, appropriately called How Search Works, to give you a behind-the-scenes look at the process from start to finish.


“Here you can follow the entire life of a search query, from the web, to crawling and indexing, to algorithmic ranking and serving, to fighting webspam,” Google Product Manager Jake Hubert said in a blog post announcing the page.


“The site complements existing resources, including this blog [Google’s Inside Search blog], the help center, user forums, Webmaster Tools, and in-depth research papers. We hope the site helps to illuminate the split-second journey from algorithms to answers,” he added.


Source: Mashable


Educating, in such fashion, is indeed the best marketing there is.



Must see. 9/10

Doesn't mention the physiological benefits of gaming, e.g. release of endorphins etc. Gaming can have a huge positive effect on people's emotions through release of brain chemicals, of course when undertaken at moderate levels:)
AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, May 9, 2013 12:09 PM

Excellent resource, especially for many of us who are doing research on gaming apps!  Thanks Linda.

 

From the article:

 

The 11 basic needs are gaining knowledge, gaining and improving skills, feeling competent, persevering through hard times, creating tools, managing danger, regulating emotions, competing for rewards, cooperating for rewards, caring for loved ones, and satisfying the senses with pleasant inputs (sights, smells, sounds, etc.). In the model they will each be referred to by their relevant nouns. Only “satisfying the senses with pleasant inputs” is called “Optimal Choice” because that is the purpose of satisfying our senses. They help us make the best choice by making us feel attracted to “good” things and repelled by “bad” things.

William Emeny's curator insight, May 9, 2013 12:59 PM

I am personally a big fan of 'gamification' and the motivational benefits to learning it brings. The work of Prof James Paul Gee is particularly brilliant. Here's a superb summary of the psychology behind why kids find video games so engaging.
