Microsoft WebMatrix

As Joomla continues to capture a larger share of the market, it is only natural that large corporations and service providers take notice. Many of these companies run Microsoft IIS web servers and the need for Joomla to run smoothly on this platform became readily apparent. Joomla is not the only open source CMS in need of a good integration with several web servers and therefore we and the entire community were excited when Microsoft started an initiative to make it easier to integrate solutions such as Joomla on their platform.

With the WebMatrix platform installer they created an integrated installation toolkit that makes it simple to get Joomla running on your local computer or a hosting partner. As a Gold Sponsor, we are pleased that Microsoft's engagement with the open source community did not stopped with the integration of our solutions but they also support our events to get in touch and learn about our demands, ideas and concepts.
