I am excited to be presenting my talk on extending Lightswitch applications at the NYC .Net Developers Group.

LightSwitch Talk at the NYC Silverlight Meetup.

On Thursday October 13, I presented my talk titled “Light up your out-of-the-box LightSwitch application” to a group of about 30 developers.   I was surprised to know that at least one individual was already looking at deploying production applications using LightSwitch while a number of others were interested.   The talk centered around the customization of LightSwitch application including the use of custom or third-party extensions. Basically a slightly modified version of the Code Camp NYC talk.

I will be giving yet another LightSwitch and Extensions session at the NYC WPF & Silverlight meetup on Thursday October 13, 2011

CodeCampNYC 2011 was great.

Saturday October 1st was a great day for me.  It was my first time speaking at a code camp and it was very exciting.     It was great to see familiar faces from the local WPF and Silverlight meetup as well as seeing Rich Dudley, ComponentOne’s evangelist.

The session went very well.  I had a number of great questions from the attendees.   As is the case in many sessions on new topics, a number of people had never seen nor used the product and so here I was targeting a developer audience for a product meant to an information worker or a junior developer.  I ended up given a 20 minute product overview and wrote a simple application on the fly before demonstrating the extensibility options.  All in the all the session was very good.

At the speaker dinner party, I was asked about the possibility of giving the same or similar talk at two other local community groups in the next few months, so if you missed it and are interested, stay tuned.
