Best Whidbey Feature Found So Far

Tuesday, January 13, 2004
I was experimenting with Whidbey and found some really nice new features. My favorite feature, however, is the new File-system web site. You can keep all the files for an ASP.NET app in a simple folder – no dependency on IIS!

This is great news. On several occasions I’ve been driven to screaming fits of hysteria with Visual Studio and where I want a web application to be. I’m tired of editing virtual directory properties and hacking .webinfo files. Simply copying code to a different location or computer should not be this hard (or this hard). The first time I put an ASP.NET app into source control for team development it was quite the ordeal – but that long before they started publishing 17 page and 30 page white papers on the subject.
