Here is another WebMatrix Tutorial showcasing a really cool feature in the new WebMatrix 2- Image Optimization.

I already discussed the CoffeeScript, Less, Sass, and Scss Compilation; iPhone and iPad Emulators; JavaScript and CSS Minification; NuGet Gallery Integration; and Publishing Websites to Windows Azure to name just a few of the cool features in WebMatrix 2.

Developing mobile websites using responsive web design, Kendo UI, and jQuery Mobile is a big part of my day. I use numerous tools and recently I mentioned Adobe Shadow and Firefox's new Responsive Mode so you can see how your media queries react on difference devices like the iPhone, iPad, etc. Even more amazing is that Microsoft WebMatrix 2 has plugins that include an iPhone Emulator, iPad Emulator, and Windows Phone 7 Emulator!

Microsoft had several important announcements this past week. The main announcements was the new and improved Windows Azure and its support for Web Sites. As an FYI, I created a quick tutorial on Installing Orchard CMS as an Azure Web Site. Another announcement was the release of WebMatrix 2 RC, which includes a lot of neat features including node.js support; HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, C#, and jQuery Code Completion; iPhone and Windows Phone Emulators, etc. I'll talk about those WebMatrix 2 features another time. Right now I wanted to mention the ability to download and install Orchard Modules and Themes via the WebMatrix 2 NuGet Gallery support!
