LightSwitch: Simple on the outside, rich on the inside
Presented by: Jan Van Der Haegen - Paul Van Bladel
On: Wednesday, February 20, 2013

Make the switch to LightSwitch


In less than a year, Visual Studio LightSwich quickly evolved to a development platform that is ready to provide an answer to all of todays technological challenges: running on mobile devices, being accessible using open standards, supporting multi-tenancy and hosting in the cloud; a must-see for every developer.
Starting at the foot of a shallow learning curve, experienced guides Paul and Jan provide you with a map of the impressive architecture behind this simple IDE.  Throughout the night, your guides will then use real life examples and demos as you begin your journey by setting up a LightSwitch application, and enriching it with a shiny custimization of it's looks.  Furthermore, you'll be visiting a brand new ecosystem based on the OAuth and OData protocols, and learn about the benefits of freeing data from the silo of the application that created it.  For those that are uncomfortable with the Silverlight landscape, a small GPS device will be provided and your guides will teach you how to create companion applications in HTML5 that are tailored to small touch-screens of today's popular mobile devices.  The evening ends with a locally prepared dinner in restaurant "SharePoint", where you can sit back and, depending on the weather forecast and visibility, see your application being launching into the clouds.
 

About the speakers
Jan Van der Haegen is a green geek who turns coffee into software. He’s a loving husband, a proud lead developer in an international team at Centric Belgium, and so addicted to learning about any .NET technology—Visual Studio LightSwitch in particular—that he maintains a blog and a column in MSDN magazine on his coding experiments. You can find his latest adventures at switchtory.com/janvan
 
Paul Van Bladel is a professional musician and is fascinated by philosophy, classical music and no-nonsense software architecture.
He lives close to the Oud-Heverlee forest together with 3 women (his loving wife and their two little daughters). This dangerous adventure reminds him, day in day out, to the "inversion of control" principle.
In daily life, Paul works as a member of the .Net competence center at Kbc Bank where he supports the various projects of .Net scrum development teams. Since the adoption of LightSwitch at Kbc, Paul became a LightSwitch software factory evangelist, however the precise order of these events is debatable.
Paul studied music at the Brussels Royal Conservatory (piano, music theory and chamber music) and obtained a master degree in managerial economics and corporate strategy at Leuven University.
