I wrote the E-Book Creating Visual Studio LightSwitch Custom Controls (Beginner to Intermediate), because I had to. I feel very passionate about the fact that LightSwitch is a much easier way to create professional Silverlight applications (and I have been creating Silverlight applications for a long time link, link, link). I had created Blog posts, but to properly demonstrate the power of LightSwitch, I needed a complete end-to-end book. So I wrote an E-Book and offered it to the current members of the site for only $5 (the regular price is $9.99). Then… wow sales have been good, hundreds of dollars in the first day!
This got me thinking, what do all those people want? Information, yes, but what they really want is to use LightSwitch to create applications that will help them… do “something”. It doesn’t matter what that “something” is, it is important to them. There are thousands of “hungry” people who need information to help them achieve their goals.
