About this book

LightSwitch 2012 is included as part of the Visual Studio 2012 package. It is a rapid application deployment tool that lets power users and administrators build data-centric business applications for the desktop, cloud, and Web in just a few clicks, with no code required. The basics are very easily understood but more advanced users will hunger for more: how do you design complex layouts? How do you query data using LINQ and other syntax structures? How do you secure your application against malicious use? Visual Studio LightSwitch 2012 answers these questions and more as author Tim Leung—winner of a Microsoft 2011 Community Contributor Award for his LightSwitch expertise—covers this breakthrough product in detail. For serious developers building, enhancing and deploying advanced business applications using LightSwitch makes sense because they can benefit from the elegance, convenience and cost savings afforded by rapid application development before going beyond the "click-and-you're-done" interface to include the extra value and depth of coding expertise that their clients value.
