Thanks to those folks who came out to Silicon Valley Code Camp this weekend. Peter Kellner and crew put on another awesome event! I can’t believe we had over 2000 people there. Also thanks to Peter for using LightSwitch to quickly build some administration screens for the SVCC website.
Here are some resources from the two LightSwitch talks I did on Saturday that you should explore.
- Download the Beta and get started with LightSwitch by going to the LightSwitch Developer Center http://msdn.com/lightswitch. All the following resources are easily accessible from the Dev Center and it’s my job to keep cranking content out on that site so check back often!
- Watch the step-by-step “How Do I…?” videos. These videos go over building a LightSwitch application from scratch, similar to what I showed in the Intro class on Saturday.
- Go through the Vision Clinic walkthrough and download the code. Although this walkthrough is a little different that what I did in class, it has the same database I showed and is an good source of learning the capabilities of LightSwitch application development.
- Get the LightSwitch Training kit. This kit has another excellent walkthrough that builds a bookstore application, but it also contains a couple tutorials on creating custom data sources and custom controls like I showed in the “Beyond the Basics” class.
- Watch this Channel 9 video for more info on the architecture, more advanced coding, and custom controls & data sources.
- Keep an eye out for my LightSwitch articles, videos and resources I post regularly on this blog.
- Head on over to the Visual Studio LightSwitch forums to ask questions. We have two forums, one for general questions on the Beta and one that covers building extensions for LightSwitch.
- Here are some of my favorite community resources that you should follow:
Thanks again to all that came out to Silicon Valley code camp this weekend!
