Screencast: Getting started with LightSpeed

Screencast Title

One of the challenges with LightSpeed is that end users install it, create a model and then wonder what they need to do next to actually start using their LightSpeed domain models. It’s a query that we’re working hard to resolve by improving the first time experience. We think we have been doing that consistently with every release – improved help files, code generation tools and now we have made available a simple “Getting started with LightSpeed” screencast.

The screencast walks through:

  • Creating a model using the LightSpeed Designer for Visual Studio 2008
  • Configuring LightSpeed in a simple manner using your applications .config file
  • What a LightSpeed Context is, how it relates to a Unit Of Work
  • Writing CRUD style queries

It is designed as an introduction – seasoned LightSpeed users probably won’t learn anything new but we do hope it’s helpful for those who have decided to give LightSpeed a try and want to get going fast. How fast? The video is 11 minutes long.
