Welcome to The Power of LightSwitch blog!
Hey, thanks for coming to visit my blog about Visual Studio LightSwitch - whether you are here because you clicked the wrong link or you read the title and thought "Wow - what a dumb title for a blog", I'm glad you're here nonetheless. Since this is the first post, I guess I have to do one of those "Who am I" overviews everyone loves. I'll try to brighten it up using that Modern Family gimmick where they are doing fake interviews to advance the story.
Okay, so who are you?
And why are you writing a LightSwitch blog exactly?
Well, I did that podcast with Jay Schmelzer from Microsoft about LightSwitch a few months ago and -
Yeah, I'm not clicking on another link to listen to some podcast you did. Try giving me an actual answer this time.
Because I think it's perhaps the best thing to come along from Microsoft in quite some time. There's really no limits to its potential for both developers AND non-developers.
There's plenty of talented folks at SAP already doing just that. I'd rather talk about how you could use HANA in a Lightswitch app. Or how to use SAP NetWeaver Gateway and LightSwitch to work with SAP systems and data. Think of the opportunities that could present for LightSwitch and .NET developers. It's probably a better use of both of our time if I stick to those types of scenarios, no?
Wow - great! So when are those articles coming?
Just keep reading the blog.
It won't be too long, I promise. But I want to show you other LightSwitch scenarios and code samples I've done that you might find helpful.
Uh, why wouldn't I just go read the LightSwitch team blog for that type of information? Or Michael Washington's? Or Paul Van Bladel's? Or Paul Patterson's? Or Jan Van der Haegan's? They already do that pretty well.
Can't you read theirs and mine?
Why are you such a jerk?
I don't like bald guys.
Whatever - look, if you have to choose, read theirs. But if you have time to do both, I'll try and post some things you might find interesting. And feel free to make suggestions and point out things I could do better in the comments section.
Try writing a post that people can actually use. That's my suggestion.
So there was my attempt to introduce myself to you all in a way that didn't put you to sleep. I look forward to sharing my experiences and examples with this great community and that you find this blog valuable. Thanks!
