    I thought it was a great overview. It gave me the incentive to try LightSwitch again. I had played with it in the early days, as well. But, have not followed it as closely. I knew Paul was working with it and would be a great source of information.

      Thanks Glenn! I'm going to put together a more interesting, HTML Client specific, presentation together and try and get into the mix before the end of this year's season.

    For some reason, I thought this was in March... Sorry on holidays and can't make it tomorrow... :(

      No worries Ron. I can give you a quick demo some time when you get back. Enjoy the holidays!

    Looking forward to learning more about LightSwitch. I started playing with it when it first came out. I know Paul has done a lot more work with this tool. I was impressed with how fast it could be used to whip up a prototype application. I will enjoy learning about how it has been used to build production applications.
