  • Watch Express Way Tour video (now on YouTube)

    Check out the “Express Way Tour” video below:

    Recently, we did a multi-city tour to discuss design and DevExpress ASP.NET controls. The video above contains some of the great parts of the talks.

    Learn about UI

    Here’s the official description:

    Explore the how and why of great UI. If you believe you're not an artist, that UI is merely subjective, or that a great UI is not worth the effort, then this keynote is for you. You'll learn how to measure UI quality, covering user models, entry points, orienteering, and discoverability, with tips and code samples for the .NET developer sprinkled throughout.

    DevExpress ASP.NET and MVC Controls Overview
    Creating elegant, interactive and engaging web applications requires a comprehensive suite of controls and extensions and a fully customizable selection of themes. DevExpress ASP.NET ships with 16 highly polished themes for your next web application. You can use each of these themes, without modification or manipulate them using our free ASP.NET Theme Builder.

    Good To Great UI
    In this session, you'll learn how small changes can improve your UI. Mark Miller joins Mehul Harry to discuss and show how seemingly small UI changes can yield important benefits to customers using your software.

    Unofficially, it’s a good video where Mark Miller talks about User Interface and design. Then later in the video, Mark and I apply some of the tips from his excellent talk.

    This is video is worth watching even at one hour and twelve minutes. So sit back with some lunch, coffee, and/or popcorn. Smile

    Lately, I’ve been doing some customizations to the slick DevExpress Web Mail demo. Currently, it looks like this:


    In the webinar, I discuss how you can take an existing ASP.NET website that uses DevExpress and customize it. For example, I modified the above site’s styles and fonts to make something like this:
