3.0 out of 5 stars Good Starter book. Feb. 11 2013

This is good to show you how to get started. I have found LightSwitch too buggy to be really useful, which is too bad. This was a good book to use to find out if Lightswitch will work for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, great product Aug. 15 2011

I was interested in learning about MS LS. I bought this book because it was the first book to market. I wasn't too thrilled by the title, thinking the content might be pretty thin, but I was completely wrong. This is a great book for learning LS. It will get you up to speed fast with a great tool. I've ordered the Unleashed book as well, but it doesn't come out for four more months. There's no reason to wait that long. This book is more than adequate to get you going quickly. I couldn't be more pleased to have discovered this book, and I feel like I have a leg up on learning an important new development tool. Thanks for the excellent book. I highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book, Especially for First to Market Sept. 15 2011

Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
This tutorial for the Microsoft Lightswitch Rapid Application Development application is fantastic. I have been curious about Lightswitch for rapidly developing basic apps to connect to data in a SQL Server and Access environment. This book covers all of the bases very thoroughly. The book is replete with code examples, color figures, and stepwise instructions given in sufficient detail. The Lightswitch and Visual Studio interfaces are covered. It is kind of like a missing manual. It along with the Microsoft video tutorials are all I need. I have had this book a short time and am creating decent, basic front-ends for data, best of all, quickly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Organized and thorough Sept. 9 2011
By Brent Butler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
This book is a tutorial for the LightSwitch RAD tool used under Visual Studio 2010. LightSwitch proposes to develop an application without writing code, but that would have to be a pretty simple application! LOL

This book takes you through both the LightSwitch interface and elements of the VS interface, and thoroughly covers the boundaries of LightSwitch RAD development. Database connectivity is always of great interest to me, and I thought the book was particularly strong in this section.

Color is used well throughout the book both in charts, figures, and code examples.

Sample applications are worked through to give you hands on experience as you move through the book. This is the type of book that always should accompany a programming IDE, but never does anymore.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book worth reading! Aug. 27 2011
By Bilal Haidar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is not only useful and beneficial to learn Visual Studio LightSwitch, but also a good reference to software development / software analysis ideas and concepts. The text reflects the author's huge experience in building software over the years.

The detailed yet effective writing style makes it a book worth reading for starters and experienced in LightSwitch.

Thank you Istvan and keep up the good work!

Best Regards,
Bilal

I used to be a programmer about 15 years ago, but then stopped this activity. Now, I need to create analytical and reporting tools very quickly, ideally without assistance (or too much assistance) of developers and VS LightSwitch is created for that purpose. The book is providing very good insight with practical examples and I appreciate how clear and step-by-step it is written. One of piloting books and very good job done.
