Birmingham: Packt is pleased to announce the publication of Microsoft Visual Studio LightSwitch Business Application Development – a book and eBook focused upon the hands-on development of business applications with LightSwitch. Written by Jayaram Krishnaswamy, the book covers multiple topic areas including: the download and installation of LightSwitch, designing queries, deploying security features, and much more.
Microsoft Visual Studio LightSwitch is an Integrated Development Environment, tailored for creating business applications built on existing .NET technologies and Microsoft platforms. The primary data storage supports Microsoft SQL Server Express, Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft SQL Azure. LightSwitch also supports other data sources including Microsoft SharePoint. The tool can be installed as a stand-alone SKU or as an integrated add-in to Visual Studio 2010.
Using this comprehensive 384 page guide to build applications, readers will not only set up their database but also link it to data either on a local or remote database. They will then get to grips with entities and LightSwitch specific data types, and write simple and complex queries with (and without) writing code. Readers will also be able to create entities and screens from scratch and use built-in templates. Deployment is also fully covered.
Developers interested in working with Microsoft Visual Studio LightSwitch will find this book to be a valuable addition to their bookshelf. This book is out now and is available from Packt and other leading booksellers.
