  • Microsoft Build Conference 2011: Recap with Mehul and Seth

    Check out this video that Seth Juarez and I recorded on the last day of Microsoft BUILD 2011 conference.

    In the video, Seth and I take a leaf out of ESPN's book and take a look at the plays and moves that made BUILD such a fascinating conference.

    We discuss:

    • Windows 8 (like, duh)
    • WinRT (the blue and green sides of the new map)
    • Attendee and MVP reactions
    • Metro UI, touch tablets and slates
    • Why you should not be afraid of the future
    • DevExpress' commitment

    Click the image below and watch the 12 minute Build recap video:

  • BUILD Conference: Windows 8 and HTML 5 does not effect your ASP.NET #bldwin

    DevExpress @ Build

    HTML 5 in Windows 8 will not effect your ASP.NET development. Why?

    ASP.NET == Web Server

    ASP.NET is a server technology. ASP.NET gives you the broadest reach by creating HTML websites that can be viewed on any platform or device that has a web browser.

    HTML 5 on Windows 8 == Client

    The new Metro UI for Windows 8 looks very slick for tablet devices. Not only can you write apps for it using traditional client languages, but you can also write those apps in HTML 5 + JavaScript. Those apps use the WinRT run-time to take advantage of the local device resources such as the camera, and you get that slick Windows 8 Metro UI look automatically.

    Even though the app may be written in HTML 5 + JavaScript, since it uses the WinRT run-time, it will only run on a Windows 8 machine. It is a true client app, not a browser app.

    So if you're on ASP.NET now then have no fear because Windows 8 does not really affect you. Instead, it's an added bonus that you can use your skills as a web developer to make native Windows 8 apps using HTML 5 and JavaScript. Or ASP.NET to make slick websites.

    Enjoy!

  • HDC 2011 Recap - Thank you Omaha! #hdc11

    hdc11logo

    The Heartland Developers Conference (HDC) for 2011 just ended today. Like last year, DevExpress was not only a sponsor, I flew in to meet the many developers in and around the Omaha, Nebraska area.

    The HDC conference is interesting because it brings together different platforms like .NET and Java. And different people like developers and designers. I had a blast meeting many of the attendees and talking about all sorts development topics.

    When I do visit conferences, I like to interview speakers about their sessions. This is fun for me because I get to learn more about the session but more importantly, you get to experience a little bit from the conference even if you were not there.

    So I recorded several video interviews at the show and we'll be publishing these videos in the coming weeks. Keep an eye on The DevExpress Channel.

    I want to thank the Lincoln .NET Users group who put together a 150 person event for Scott Hanselman. At this user group meeting, I got to meet some more interesting devs like Nate Lowry (video interview coming soon).

    Till then, enjoy a few of my pictures from the event:

    Driving with Scott Hanselman to the User Group meeting. Yes, he's as intense in person too. In the picture, he's playing Zulu R&B music while making clicking noises with his mouth and explaining what they mean.

    Jason Follas presenting jQuery & REST

    This was Jason Follas' packed session titled "How jQuery and REST Saved My ASP.NET Project w/Jason Follas". Jason gave a very cool session using the ASPxGridView as part of his talk! In fact, I'm hoping to book him for future webinar to show you the slick jQuery integration he did.

    Here's John Sheehan from Twilio presenting "HTTP for ASP.NET Developers w/John Sheehan".

    Omaha Steaks

    Omaha is known for their great steaks. They even sell them at the airport!

     

    Thanks again to the Heartland developers for welcoming DevExpress. If you were at the show, drop me a comment below on how you enjoyed the show.
