Client-Side Story

My new blog - It’s a Client-Side Story

Cheers to all!  Thanks for checking out my new endeavor!

I’d like to begin by introducing myself – my name is Marion by day and Marina by night. J  No doubt that some of you are already familiar with my other posts, such as Pros and Cons of CDN Usage in Projects With ChartJS and Get Started With Videos.  But this new blog is something very new for me and I am not sure what it will evolve into.  I am looking forward to sharing many interesting things with you, including videos, tutorials, tips, etc.

I bet you are wondering why a gal from a web team in love with web technologies wants to now write about  a client-side story? Well, it just so happens that DevExpress has this fairly new client-side product – DevExtreme.  Since there is such a limited amount of information on it, I am thrilled to tackle this subject.  DevExtreme is this remarkable treasure troth of many different suites (like charts) and client-side widgets, all of which can be used both in desktop and mobile applications. I will use this blog to cover all these suites and widgets in detail. Again, thanks for visiting and stay tuned.


P.S.  Since DevExtreme is one of our newest products and is still being actively developed, your input is of great value to us.  So, don’t shy away from dropping me a line once you’ve had the opportunity to check out DevExtreme.

Marina (or Marion!),

I would suggest you start by writing a post about the starting point for desktop developers, for example. I think the biggest problem to us that usually works with desktop dev is to know how to write programs to Mobile Devices. I made my choice in the last year to use Xamarin for Mobile programs, because when DevExtreme was launched years ago the documentation assumes that you have a lot of experiences in web development.

But now I know that to use DevExtreme you need to have o good knolodge of JavaScript, jQuery, JSON, Angular and others technology.

Hi Marina/Marion (reminds me of John Wayne),

Welcome to DevExpress. I agree that DevExpress is one of the best libraries available and has taken my applications to a level I couldn't even dream about a few years ago.

BTW I think you mean trove rather than troth.

Hello guys,

Thank you for your feedback. I really appreciate it.

@Junior Thurler,

Yes, I am going to write some tips for desktop development in the future. For now, you can refer to the following KB article as a starting point:
