Changing Connection String in Lightswitch

This has been annoying me on my work with Lightswitch, great tool for building business applications. Finally I found this information on a forum. It didn't get a high score there, but it was spot on.

With you want to change the connection strings in debug/release mode, search for Web.Config in project tree under the ServerGenerated folder. There you will find the connection string that is used by Lightswitch in design time.

You will have to close and reopen the solution so the change takes effect...

Thanks to Nehemiah Willis post at: Original forum post

Company Logo

I am finally in the process of starting my own business. Today, I received the logo/brand name. Here it is.

I am obviously biased, but I think it looks great.

Quicklisp is great!

After a long time not doing anything Lisp, I decided to check my installation just to see if my code was still OK. It turns out that something was broken with my libraries and its dependencies.

The everyday in Lisp programming.

This time I decided to go look for something different and decided to give Quicklisp a try.
Just for the record, if you haven't tried it yet. Try it now. It exceeded all my expectations.

I was able to get an old project ready in less than 5min with all the right libraries up and running.

So, thank you Zach Beane, for Quicklisp!
