Formerly code-named “KittyHawk”, LightSwitch was announced today at VSLive!..

Without going into details (because a great introduction is on Jason Zander’s blog), just know that LightSwitch is probably the simplest way to creating business applications for the desktop and the cloud.  It automates the more time-consuming procedures of building applications, such as data sources, screen designs, and data validation.

LightSwitch is available as a standalone Visual Studio product, and will be integrated into Visual Studio in the future.
