I have recently started development of my first web page. I have been useing the "WebMatrix" which is a light weight 1.4 meg free download. If you are not familiar with this product you may find some brief info here : http://www.asp.net/webmatrix/
The downsides to this program are that it does not have intellisense. So, I decided it was time to find something that was a bit better. I found VB 2005 Beta edition. Seems like a great program, and my background is in C++. But I do not see any place for web application development. All that said, my question is; for a novice programer, what a good language/platform to create a web page? Am I just missing some functionality that VB offers?
