Product Description

This e-book collects all 5 parts of SilverlightShow article series 'Beginners Guide to Visual Studio LightSwitch', by Silverlight MVP Kunal Chowdhury.

From the author: Visual Studio LightSwitch is a new tool for building data-driven Silverlight Application using Visual Studio IDE. It automatically generates the User Interface for a DataSource without writing any code. You can write a small amount of code also to meet your requirement.

Recently, I got some time to explore Visual Studio LightSwitch. I created a small DB application with proper data inserting UI within a small amount of time (without any XAML or C# code). Here in this e-book, I will guide you to understand it with the help of a small application.
