Using Visual Studio LightSwitch to Implement an ASP.NET Administrative Interface

Sep 28, 2011 · San Francisco, United States of America

This month, we'll take a closer look at Visual Studio LightSwitch, in which Microsoft gives us a new take on some classic Rapid Application Development (RAD) ideas. LightSwich is a RAD environment built with Silverlight and .NET RIA Services. The data centric design philosophy of LightSwitch can support extremely efficient development, and the extensibility model of LightSwitch is unique. But does the world need another RAD environment? What does LightSwitch bring to the party that other existing tools don’t do as well or better? This presentation explores one possible answer: easy integration with ASP.NET web sites.
In this hands-on presentation, Paul Keister uses LightSwitch to create a management control panel for an ASP .NET site. Starting with an existing ASP.NET MVC 3 site, Paul will develop an online administrative interface that can be used to set up user accounts, assign privileges, and manage administrative and configuration data for the site. This example application will demonstrate how a user interface developed with LightSwitch can be part of a more complex application infrastructure.
Paul Keister is a professional developer, independent consultant, and trainer with over 16 years of experience with Microsoft platforms, from Windows API applications written in C to production applications running on .NET 4.0. PJPM, the company Paul founded supplies QuickBooks integration and custom software solutions to clients across the United States and internationally. Paul is also a songwriter and retired professional musician, having most recently performed with The Ethel Merman Experience, a popular Bay Area nightclub attraction.
