In this interview with Joe Binder, a Program Manager on the LightSwitch team, we discuss the LightSwitch application framework architecture and how a LightSwitch application is built on top of well-known technologies like Silverlight, MVVM, RIA Services,
and Entity Framework. Joe shows us how to modify the behavior of a screen and how it exposes the commanding pattern in an easy-to-use way. He also shows us how to extend the UI with our own custom Silverlight controls, as well as how to connect our own data
sources using RIA Services.
