WinDays 13 Technology Conference Report

Unfortunately, everything that is beautiful has it’s end. That is true for WinDays13 Technology conference also. I’m very happy that I was part of the biggest conference in the SEE region, Croatia, town Umag located on Istra peninsula.


As many of the attendees said, this was the best WinDays conference ever. This was my first WinDays conference so I must admit that I was really surprise how well this conference was organized. It is really big, with over 1500 attendees, with over 130 speakers, fantastic accommodation, beautiful Adriatic coast (one of the most beautiful in the Europe), interesting old town Umag, fantastic weather during three days, delicious local cuisine, oportunity to see my good IT friends from the region. So what else anyone can wish at one IT conference.  Thanks to Microsoft Croatia for fantastic conference.

I have one session on third day of the conference. My accepted session was “Building business application using Visual Studio LightSwitch”. I have only 45 minutes to show how easy is to build some parts of the business app using fantastic tool as Visual Studio LightSwitch using C#. Beside Silverlight desktop or web client, in Visual Studio Update 2 it is possible to build touch-oriented business applications that run well on modern mobile devices using C#, HTML5 and JavaScript.

One of the key concepts that I presented were:

  • Main architecture of LightSwitch
  • Main concepts (screen, entity, relation, data source, query, template for screen)
  • Creating entities and relation
  • Creating screens using templates
  • Creating business logic
  • Creating permissions on screen or entity level
  • Publishing LightSwitch application

You can find presentation slides and document with steps on official web page of the conference or on skydrive here.

I have crowded room. You can see how well this was ended with this happy picture from my session:
