Last week we released the Office Developer Tools for Visual Studio 2013 – March 2014 Update! We released some exciting features for Cloud Business Apps and LightSwitch projects as well as apps for Office and SharePoint. Right before the release I recorded a podcast with Dag König, a technical evangelist in Sweden. Dag is doing some great work with LightSwitch for an orphanage organization in the Baltics and approached me for a chat. I couldn’t resist.
In this podcast we chat about LightSwitch and how it works as well as some of the new features in the latest release. Check it out:
Dev.Cast 63 – LightSwitch, a hidden gem in Visual Studio
Thanks for sharing this ;)
I love the update, I like the tool but I'd like to see some more updates to make it great. The gem still needs some more polish.
@Charles - I agree with you on a lot of these! I will pass this along to the team, thanks. Also if you want the team to consider features for the next release, you can add your suggestions on UserVoice. The more details you can give the better. It really helps to have customer requests like this in front of us when planning. visualstudio.uservoice.com/.../121579-visual-studio
Hi Beth, I agree that Lightswitch is a Gem, the more I use it the more I discover the amazing potential it has. I'm not a professional programmer, I'm a CPA who happened to learn some .Net. Lightswith has done tremendous impact in our business. However, we desperately need a sound reporting tool. Can you please let me know if you guys a working on something? I will greatly appreciate you insights on this.
