Microsoft Visual Studio LightSwitch gives you a simpler and faster way to create professional-quality business applications for the desktop, the web, and the cloud. LightSwitch is a new addition to the Visual Studio family.

With LightSwitch, you can build custom apps that rival off-the-shelf solutions. Get a head start by using pre-configured screen templates that give your app a familiar look and feel.

LightSwitch also provides prewritten code and other reusable components to handle routine app tasks, along with helpful step-by-step guidance. However, if you need to write custom code, you can use Visual Basic .NET or C#. You can deploy to the desktop, browser, or cloud (post-Beta) to share your app with others more easily without the cumbersome installation processes.
