Join us next Thursday, October 13th when Boulos Dib will return and share his experiences with LightSwitch. As usual we will have pizza at the start and a raffle at the end.
Because I need to get the attendee list to Microsoft early for the building security, I must close registration at midnight on Tuesday, October 11th. Please be sure to reply before if you wish to attend.
Light up your out-of-the-box LightSwitch application
LightSwitch is a new product from Microsoft designed to be the simplest way to build custom business applications. Using Microsoft's wizards is usually a good starting point for developing applications, but most users and developers are never satisfied with wizard generated and out of the box functionality. In addition, many organizations have their own in-house code libraries they would like to re-use and make available to their LightSwitch application developers. LightSwitch customization and extensions to the rescue.
This talk will introduce and showcase various customization options available for enhancing the out-of-the-box application experience provided by LightSwitch. By the end of this session, you should walk away with a good understanding of the options available to enhance your LightSwitch application including building a simple application showing how to re-use existing Silverlight controls.
