This video is meant to provide a brief overview of Cassini,
also known as the Web Dev Webserver and to show a new web developer how they
can use Cassini on their development machine to host their web site locally
while they build it. You’ll learn how to get Cassini installed on your machine
and how to configure Visual Studio to use Cassini for your ASP.NET application,
as well as some caveats to using Cassini. Note that if you are just getting
started today, the recommended development web server is IIS Express. You can learn more
about IIS Express in my previous video article, here.
