Ciao Switzerland, Bonjour France

30 January 2010

It’s time to say Ciao (goodbye) to Zurich and the excellent group of developer attendees we met there. To sum up the 3 days we spent here: It was incredible!

I’m On A Mountain!

Let’s start with the location: the Hotel Kulm in Zurich is where the 2 day training was held. This hotel sits at the top of Uteilberg, has fantastic views and at this time of the year, there is snow everywhere:

The location put everyone in a good mood. Sort of. A snow storm followed us to Zurich, just the same as Day 1 in Frankfurt. While a couple of attendees were delayed, everyone made it to the class and enjoyed the course.

Fantastic Attendees!

The group of attendees here were a sharp bunch of developers. A few of them were also owners and founders of their own successful software companies. Check out the some of the pics from the class:

Special Guest

Marc Greiner also attended the class to both learn about the DevExpress ASP.NET controls but also meet with Oliver and myself. Both Oliver and I were humbled and honored to have Marc there and to finally meet him in person.

Marc’s involvement with the DX-Squad goes back many years as he’s helped many developers in the DevExpress forums. Thanks Marc!

Hi Mehul,

It was more than worth braving the snow storm!

Even though I have been on the DX-Squad for years (but only a few months on the ASPx side), I picked up a lot of pearls during the course and I recommend it to every developer, be he novice or intermediate. Anyone can always learn more, and you will meet lots of DevExpress developers with whom you can interact between sessions, which is very enriching.

It wasn't only an intellectual training, I also had my fitness training!

When I arrived, I almost died running uphill from the car park in the snow storm, trying to catch the train that I heard whistling at the station! I only got the train because it was late (unusual for Switzerland I can say)!

Oliver is really an ace at teaching and Mehul excels at giving sharp advice when answering questions. The organization was excellent, thanks to John.

My best wishes to you three.
