In this video, I interview a couple of LightSwitch team members, Mike Droney (Tester) and Sheel Shah (PM), as they walk me through a real application that was built for our Admins in order to track hardware assets across the developer division. Mike and Sheel talk about the requirement gathering and development processes as well as some of the advanced features of the application. They were able to build a working prototype in no time and then used an iterative development approach to add more and more features that users wanted. LightSwitch let them concentrate on business value and user productivity and not worry about any of the plumbing required to build a modern Silverlight, n-tier application with a lot of advanced features including a generic report builder.
(Tip: To see the application & code better watch the High-quality WMV instead)
Their application is based on LightSwitch Beta 2, which is available for the public to download today! To access the download & start learning LightSwitch please visit the LightSwitch Developer Center.
