Small Web developers and designers now have a great new resource in WebsiteSpark, our new program providing software, support and, coming soon, a marketplace to help you grow your business. Web companies with 10 or fewer employees can qualify for the web platform software, professional support and training, and business opportunities through a marketplace that connects an ecosystem of customers, hosters, and complementary partners. Businesses may participate in the program for three years with no cost obligations other than a $100 program fee, payable upon exit.

 

Also new is the RTM of the Web Platform Installer 2.0, which provides even more features such as the IIS SEO Toolkit, and the Windows Web Application Gallery, now with over 20 ASP.NET and PHP applications. Beginning now and through 2009 all of this will be localized in nine languages.

 

More to come,

Mitch
