Join Us On Facebook

ASP.NET Team Blog
27 July 2009

I’m happy to report that we’ve just launched the official DevExpress fan page on Facebook.

Why Facebook? has a strong worldwide community of 250 million users which is still growing. This large community allows you to:

  1. Connect with friends
  2. Learn more about your business associates
  3. Discover, join and discuss with other developers in special interest groups like the ASP.NET MVC group or the DevExpress XAF group
  4. Get updates from the facebook news feed
  5. Aggregate your blog, twitter, other streams and easily share this with your friends

Ready to connect? Great! So how do you ‘post’ information on facebook?

The Facebook Wall

One of the great things about facebook is that any facebook user can post on the DevExpress ‘wall’.

What is the ‘wall’? It’s simply a space on every user's profile page that allows friends to post messages for the user to see. For example, below is a screenshot of the DevExpress ‘wall’ on facebook. Kevin just posted one of our customer testimonials and Joe Hendricks replied with a very cool comment:

What Do I Post On The DevExpress Wall?

Share your thoughts, stories, and work with other software professionals by posting on our facebook wall. How?

Follow these 2 simple steps:

  1. Click here to go to the DevExpress facebook page.
  2. Click the ‘Become Fan’ button at the top.
    You may need to Sign-in to your facebook account if you’re not logged in.
    If you don’t have a facebook account then I recommend creating one. (Need a facebook friend? Just ping me on facebook).

Now, post anything that is software-oriented and technically relevant that you feel other DevExpress fans would enjoy. We’d love to hear about your positive experiences, stories, and scenarios that you’ve have with our tools. For example, post about:

  • The DevExpress functionality and features that make you look good with your clients, customers and end-users.
  • Screenshots of your applications, websites, or code that you’re proud of.
  • Screencasts that show off what your applications can do. (In fact, upload videos of your INETA application entries to our facebook page).
  • Links to your websites that shows off how you make use of the DevExpress products.
  • Experiences you’ve had at a user group, conference, or an open space (For example, “Just saw a cool demo of CodeRush at my local user group. Even won a free copy!”)

It’s Not All Business

Do you have any DevExpress swag that you’ve won in a contest or picked up at a conference? Show others your cool swag by posting it to the wall. Check out these pictures of Martin Praxmarer sporting his DevExpress ‘Eat..Sleep..Code’ T-shirt:

Not A Support Channel

One thing you won’t see on the DevExpress facebook page are support issues. Why? Well there is a great support center portal website already. In fact, our support center portal isn’t just a website but a system for you log, track, escalate and resolve issues. Unfortunately, facebook just doesn’t have this level of functionality yet. Smile
