Think fast, feature-rich and affordable web app development and Microsoft may not be the first thing that springs to mind. But one agency put any prejudices aside and built a web app from top to bottom with MS tools. Here's what happened...

As an agency that helps clients in the web start-up market to design and build web apps, Howard Baines is familiar with the popular approach of using open source technologies and tools to get the job done economically. We've worked with PHP, Rails, MySQL and others, and have experienced the highs and lows of doing so. Late last year we decided to fly in the face of popular opinion and build a web app of our own... using the Microsoft platform.
Deciding on the app

We decided to build a meeting organizer application which we called 'Meet with Approval'. The application allows anyone who wants to arrange a meeting to create a dedicated event page with date and time options and send out email invites. Invitees can then select the dates that suit them, add comments and are informed when the meeting is confirmed. We knew that from a technical perspective we wanted to use some AJAX, incorporate maps and integrate with third party services such as Plaxo and PayPal.
