Day one of the fourth annual Great Indian Developer Summit (GIDS 2011) was a blast. This is the first time DevExpress visited India and the summit is a lot of fun so far.
About 1000 developers came to the summit today. Between Julian, Rachel, Mark, Gary and myself, we talked with all of them!
There was tons of interests in all platforms from WinForms, ASP.NET, ASP.NET MVC, Silverlight, and WPF.
Check out the slick DevExpress booth at GIDS 2011:
Saltmarch Media, the event organizer, did a great job promoting the event and sessions. Julian, Mark and Gary had their sessions highlighted by these large boards:
Mark Miller gave a great 30 minute keynote about "Stepping into the future of the IDE". He made crazy predictions that the mouse was going to be dead in 25 years!
The attendees loved Mark's keynote and session. And they voted him their "favorite speaker of the day". Check out the white board for votes:
