Dallas SharePoint TechFest Session Preview

I will be presenting at this year’s SharePoint TechFest hosted in Dallas next week. The title of my session is “Using MS Visual Studio LightSwitch to build HTML5 Apps for SharePoint 2013” and I will be using the new LightSwitch HTML Client released as part of the Visual Studio 2012 Update 2 CTP 4.

The session will cover the following topics:

  • Working with data sources (SQL and SharePoint)
  • Designing Screens
  • Creation of User Controls
  • Enabling and Publishing to SharePoint Online

This is a lot of material to cover in an hour! The application that I will be demonstrating/designing will be a mobile client for the submission of work orders for a organization that has multiple remote locations. Here’s a screenshot of the working application that hopefully starts to get you excited about attending the session!

Since I am covering so much material, I will begin putting together a series of blog posts here detailing the building of the application after the conference.

Hope to see you there!
