Check out this post from my good friend Andrew Brust on the new Lightswitch release from Microsoft.

Lightswitch can generate Siliverlight applications quickly. It runs in Visual Studio and allows the developer to really generate the application quickly and get it up and running.

I saw a demo of this technology several years ago and even then it was unreal.

Now its out in Beta 1 so we can began to play with it.

Before we start picking it apart, lets test it and see where it goes. Its time for a new generation of automated tools to take us to the next level of productivity in application development.

XAML makes a lot of this possible with its xml nature and data binding support. Think of Lightswitch as a v1 product which it is and then what i can do as it evolves. Thats where the magic will come in as it matures.
