  • Thank you for joining the Rotterdam Meetup

    Tuesday, December 6th, we had our Meetup in Rotterdam. The Meetup took place in a historical shipyard/museum in the Delftshaven area.


    We had conversations with quite a number of XAF developers. We furthermore discussed matters, ideas and feedback on DevExtreme, WinForms, ASP.NET MVC and even VCL!

    John filled up the goodie bags with some nice swag for everyone, and I am pretty sure everybody had a good time – at least I did.

    I’d like to thank all of you attending to the Meetup, and do let me know if you have suggestions for other locations in Europe.

  • Impressions from DevIntersection Europe 2016

    Last week, we were part of DevIntersection Europe. We talked with a lot of attendees and showed quite some cool demos on DevExtreme, MVC, WinForms and WPF. I also demoed some of the CodeRush features because we were showing our awesome new CodeRush video.

    There was quite some interest for DevExtreme with Angular 2 because of some sessions on Angular as well as a full day workshop. The last day I presented two sessions myself, and at the end of the day I had some interesting conversations about the announcements done earlier by Microsoft at the Connect(); conference.

    Below is a small impression on the event:


    We like to thank all of you stopping by our booth.

  • Meetup impressions in Haarlem

    At November 15th, we had our first meetup at “De Philharmonie” in Haarlem, The Netherlands.


    In this beautiful building, we had some drinks and good conversations. It was nice that there was variety in technologies being used so I talked about WinForms, WPF, MVC, XPO, XAF, DevExtreme and dotnet Core. A couple of customers were investigating technologies for upcoming projects.

    Because of that we decided to do an ad-hoc presentation specific to the questions of our customers. I highlighted some features of DevExtreme, the powerful scaffolding features for WinForms and WPF and finalized the session with some info on what to expect in the near future from both Microsoft and DevExpress.








    We’d like to thank all of you who joined us.

  • Watch the webinar on how to get started with our MVVM Framework for WinForms

    Recently, I did a webinar “Rock Your WinForms Apps with DevExpress MVVM".


    In the webinar, I showed you what MVVM is all about and how to apply this design pattern on your WinForms applications by using our framework.

    You can re-watch the recording on YouTube, were you will see some of the powerful designtime and runtime features. The project being built in the webinar is available on GitHub. If you want to perform unit tests on your ViewModel like I mentioned, check out the WPF counterpart on my GitHub account. It has a test project in the solution to give you an idea on how to test your code.

    If you have any questions, leave a reaction, email or tweet me.
