I will be developing an ASP.net website shortly and would like to know what the best environment to work with is.
I would like to know what software I can use for coding your ASP.NET sites? (Is it dreamweaver or microsoft web developer)
Also I would like to run a microsoft server (which also caters for databases) locally on my machine to be able to test/see if my website is working correctly before uploading anything online on a real server. (I'm not sure - but I don't think that I need APACHE right?)
Which microsoft server do you suggest I install?
Thanks for your help guys.
