LightSwitch Development Chicago

When looking to develop, maintain, or enhance your LightSwitch application, apHarmony will be happy to bring our expertise to your LightSwitch Development project.  As a developers since the early versions of LightSwitch, we have been pushing the envelope with the platform and extending new features and functionality to the environment.

Microsoft LightSwitch provides a great value proposition: RAD (Rapid Application Development) using the highly successful .NET platform, with the same ease of use as Microsoft Access.  As with many RAD tools – the ease of development can be a double-edged sword.  In the hands of a novice developer, the LightSwitch environment can be an easy way to create an unmaintainable application.

One of the main challenges with LightSwitch is that 90% of the development work is extremely easy.  The final 10% is extremely difficult.  Enabling LightSwitch to accomplish functionality that is not part of the base feature set requires advanced knowledge in C#, WPF, and the .NET framework.  In fact, it often requires decompilation of the LightSwitch libraries and is not for the faint of heart.  apHarmony has experience with taming LightSwitch and providing that final 10% of advanced functionality that will make the application a success.

Another key consideration when developing a LightSwitch application is the underlying database design.  Although the basic concept of a relational database is easy to understand, the experience required to create a truly scalable and flexible database design takes at least ten to twenty years to master.  Similar to real architecture, a database architect must plan for the future and use proven methodologies that can only be learned through experience.  Once a database is created, it is very difficult to change later.  As such, it is important to start with a stable and flexible database design, and build the application up from there.

Whatever the stage of your LightSwitch project, apHarmony will be happy to help you complete the project and achieve your goals.  Please give us a call at 630-855-7522 for a free consultation.
