Building Your Application
Whether it is standard HTML or dynamic code like PHP or ASP.NET, you need a good editor to put it all together. I have used a number of editors over the years, and the one I like and use daily is WebMatrix. The latest version is a free download and has everything you need to build prototypes and the final product. In addition, there are a variety of templates available to quickly build an application.
Since Microsoft doesn’t have the best reputation in the web development community, you can also explore other options, starting with Dreamweaver, Brackets, or a cloud-based tool such as Cloud9.
A Good Foundation
There are freely available frameworks that provide the foundation for your own application; these frameworks utilize the latest techniques for full-featured web applications. A good one is Bootstrap, and the latest version fully embraces responsive design and the mobile platform – the motto of Bootstrap 3 is mobile first.
Plenty of Options
The key is to find good tools and know how to use them; this allows you to focus on tackling your new project as opposed to figuring out how to use the tools.
