  • This location is shown only to members

If you haven’t taken a look at Visual Studio LightSwitch in a while you’ll be surprised on how busy the team has been! With the recent addition of HTML5 and SharePoint 2013 support, Visual Studio LightSwitch remains the easiest way to create modern line of business applications for the enterprise.

In this demo-heavy session, see how to build and deploy data-centric business applications that run in Azure or Office 365 that provide rich user experiences tailored for modern devices. We’ll cover how LightSwitch helps you focus your time on what makes your application unique, allowing you to easily implement common business application scenarios—such as integrating multiple data sources, data validation, authentication, and access control—as well as leveraging Data Services created with LightSwitch to make data and business logic available to other applications and platforms. See how to extend the LightSwitch middle-tier with WebAPI in order to provide reporting dashboards and expose business processes. Using a little bit of HTML5 and JavaScript, you will also see how to extend the LightSwitch client with custom controls, client-side logic, and CSS themes. Finally you will see how LightSwitch gives you the option to build and deploy these apps onto Office 365 / SharePoint 2013 and take advantage of cloud-based business services.
