1.Did LightSwitch save your business money? How?

After I've seen about Light Switch and Beth Messi Advance development Sample Contoso Construction, Then we realised that our CA is looking some sort of same solution for his firm. Then we demonstrated the Beth Messi sample with more added options in real time and finally we developed a solution using Light Switch.

LightSwitch not only saved my business lots of time & money!, It makes me money by developing quick solutions for my Clients and solved me a compatibility, look and feel problems especially when my clients are looking for a solutions in Mac Computers.

It also improves my client employees Productivity.

2.Would this application still be built if you didn’t have LightSwitch? If yes, with what?

No, I may not develop the system. Not enough budget and time frame for developing as per our client requirements.

3.How many users does this application support?

Currently 90 people are using the system Simultaneously. As per our current server configuration and Bandwidth, It supports for more than 200 People.

4.How long did this application take to actually build using Light Switch?

I spent most of the time on research on Light switch functionality with other extensions. The development time took me not more than 80 Hrs in 15 days.

5.Does this application use any LightSwitch extensions? If so, which ones? Did you write any of these extensions yourself? If so, is it available to the public? Where?

Yes, I used many Microsoft Released extensions and Other Third party extensions. Not available to the public as we developed for one of our client, but they may request us for any development help.

Microsoft Released extensions

  • Light Switch Utilities
  • Light Switch Filter Control
  • Bing Map Control
  • Microsoft light Switch Extensions.

Third party extensions

  • Component One - C1 Rich Text editor
  • DevExpress - Xtra Reports
  • Telerik - Scheduler

6.How did Light Switch make your developer life better? Was it faster to build compared to other options you considered?

Yes. 100% is easy and faster when compare to any Development tools. Anyone can build Application with a little knowledge of Development.

I left my 8 years web & application development career and shifted to Company Operations & Management in 2007. Just because of Microsoft Light Switch and Beth Massi Examples tempted me to drive on development cycle again.

In my view, Light Switch is the Best Application development tool for the desktop and cloud. A Very Good opportunity for all freshers to develop a world Class Applications without any experience.
