A couple months ago I started posting a rollup of interesting community happenings, content, and sites popping up. If you missed those rollups you can check them out here, lot of great content and exciting events happened:
Here’s a rollup of LightSwitch goodies for November:
Do you have what it takes to be a LightSwitch Star? Show us your coolest, most productive, LightSwitch business application and you could win a Laptop and other great prizes!
Last month The Code Project launched the “LightSwitch Star” contest. You just answer some questions and email them a screenshot or two. They’re looking for apps that show off the most productivity in a business as well as apps that use extensions in a unique, innovative way. Check out the contest page on The Code Project for details.
There were some really cool applications submitted in November! Some were real production apps and some were samples/tutorials. Here’s a breakdown of what was submitted. Vote for your favorites! Prizes are given away each month.
6 Production Apps
We added over an hour and a half of video training to the Developer Center “How Do I” video page graciously donated by Pluralsight! Check out the modules we added:
We also updated the essential learning topics with new content and organized the learning sections better so have a look at all the new training available on the LightSwitch Developer Center!
