The .NET SDK is a must for developing code on your IIS server. Its sister application is Studio .NET. Most of the stuff you can do with Studio .NET is also possible with the .NET SDK. Since Studio .NET is not a free proposition, you may stick to the .NET SDK which IS free.

You must install .NET SDK only after you have installed IIS. Switching the order won't work, and will require re-installation of the .NET SDK. You can download the installation application from Microsoft's download area here. Click on the Save option and save it somewhere on your computer. Once downloaded, just run setup.exe while answering any questions raised during the installation. You can keep all the default choices.

The .NET SDK will be added to your PC like any other application. It will also have an entry in your Start menu. From this entry, you can reach the SDK's Documentation, Overview, Samples and QuickStart Tutorials, as well as Tools. There are thousands of pages you can browse. Pick your subject and start learning.
