Starting in early December I’ll be on the road delivering Visual Studio LightSwitch training to cities in Eastern Canada & Vermont. Yes, that’s right, a small Italian woman from California travelling through Canada in the dead of winter – anyone want to sponsor a good jacket for me? ;-)

The plan is to hit some User Groups with a couple hours of free training and then land in Montreal at the DevTeach conference where I’ll be doing an full-day workshop. Here’s what the schedule is shaping up to be:

I encourage you to join the full day workshop - here’s what you’ll learn:

LightSwitch in Visual Studio 2012 is the easiest way to create modern line of business applications for the enterprise. In this training you will learn how to build connected business applications that can be deployed to the cloud and run on the desktop as well as modern mobile devices. We’ll start with the basics of building the middle-tier services and data entry screens with simple validations and then we’ll move into more advanced scenarios like writing complex business rules and processes. You’ll gain a full understanding of the architecture of a LightSwitch application and how it embraces best practices in n-tier design while handling all of the plumbing code for you. Learn how to integrate multiple data sources like SharePoint and OData services, as well as data validation, authentication, and access control.
