In this RunAs Radio podcast, Richard and I talk to David Lowe about the Microsoft Web Platform. The Web platform spans from development and designer tools, through the Web server (IIS) and the databases. David starts out digging into running PHP and mySQL on Windows before moving on into the IIS extensions, including: Application Resource Routing, Dynamic IP Restrictions, Live Smooth Streaming, Windows Media Services and Search Engine Optimization. Check out the Web platform here and the IIS extensions here.
