Microsoft Lightswitch

Microsoft Lightswitch is the new development tool for developing business application using Microsoft Silverlight controls.  In other words, business application development for cloud computing.  I’ve waited so long for this.  I was hoping that Microsoft Access would step up for the cloud but it didn’t.  I tried to wrestle with Microsoft Access-Sharepoint tandem but to no avail.

Below is the sample Microsoft Lightswitch application that I’m developing for a lending company.

As you can see, the application is not as rich as my Microsoft Application as of the moment.  Just wait and see…

In this blog I’ll be adding new finds and goodies that I will be using to improve my current Microsoft Lightswitch application.  Click here for my Microsoft Lightswitch blog.
