    Hello Fellow Programmers,

    I'm trying to come up with a UI strategy for our company.  In the quest to define the UI Strategy for Web I have started to research ASP.NET MVC, LightSwitch and WebMatrix.  What is unclear is when would we use what in the web world as the paths of all these three technologies cross.  Is there a microsoft best practice or any guidelines that anyone in this forum could help me with.

    I think the "UI Strategy" you choose depends on what your company wants to achieve and what skills you currently have. Personally, I recommend avoiding WebMatrix and LightSwitch. I am not convinced that Microsoft is really behind the idea of developing either product. Their main focus in the developer division seems to be to drive adoption of Azure and other cloud offerings. MVC gets all the love in that regard.
