The Visual Studio LightSwitch Training Kit contains demos and labs to help you learn to use and extend LightSwitch. The introductory materials walk you through the Visual Studio LightSwitch product. By following the hands-on labs, you'll build an application to inventory a library of books.

The more advanced materials will show developers how they can extend LightSwitch to make components available to the LightSwitch developer. In the advanced hands-on labs, you will build and package an extension that can be reused by the Visual Studio LightSwitch end user.


I'm not sure about LightSwitch. I mean I think it's very cool tech, I dig its model driven approach, its flexibility and concept, but I think I need to see it rev a few times before I jump in with both feet. There's too many questions about the long future of Silverlight right now that I'd really hate to place my bets on something that's so tightly coupled with it, until I hear more (lets hope at BUILD 2011?)

That said, I still wanted to capture this as you never know... I might wake up one day and need to become Mr. LightSwitch. You never know... :P
