LightSwitch Takes the Programming out of Writing Programs

Visual Studio LightSwitch is trying to do what programming vendors have attempted for decades -- make it possible to write good software without writing code.

I don't think you'll develop the next Halo or Microsoft Excel with LightSwitch. Instead, the tool is aimed at data-driven apps. You can use templates to build basic interfaces and tables that are fed from data sources.

These .NET apps can run in the cloud, on the desktop or from a browser. The software will sell for around three hundred smackers and there is a 90-day free trial.
