Stunning result: DevExpress wins 11 categories in asp.netPRO Readers' Choice Awards

11 May 2009

The news was just announced at Microsoft TechEd 2009: Developer Express came first in 11 categories in the asp.netPRO Readers' Choice Awards. Not one or two, but a whopping 11 categories. It's a stunning endorsement of our products, and we're gobsmacked (as they say in England).

  • Awards Best Add-In: CodeRush for Visual Studio .NET
  • Best Charting & Graphics Tool: XtraCharts Suite
  • Best Community Resource: DevExpress Community Site
  • Best Component Set: DXperience ASP.NET
  • Best Grid: ASPxGridView
  • Best Navigation Control: ASPxNavBar
  • Best Online Editor: ASPxHTML Editor
  • Best Printing/Reporting Tool: XtraReports Suite
  • Best Scheduling/Calendar Tool: ASPxScheduler
  • Best Utility: ASPxSpell Checker
  • Best Silverlight Control: AgDataGrid Suite

We're told that no other company came remotely close to this score. Wow.

We're extremely grateful to everyone of our customers who voted for us in the Awards, and in fact to every customer, period. It's customers like you that has made DevExpress the successful company it is today, and every one of you has helped influence the products that won.

We doff our collective hats to you (and if you're here at TechEd, come and have one of the doffed hats: we've got plenty).

LOL, the marketing people at asp.netPRO must be hating you guys, they probably had to re-design their plaque just so they could fit all the categories on it :)

Congrat on the award, umm.... seems like I just had a deja vu moment, I am sure I was saying the same thing last year ;)
