DevExpress at DevConnections: it must be good, it’s got Dev in the title

Just a quick note to say that the team will be at DevConnections next week in sunny Las Vegas, at the MGM. The conference is from Monday 26 March to Thursday 29 (with the Exhibit Hall open from the Tuesday onwards) and is the official Launch conference for Visual Studio 11 beta; you know, that IDE you’ve now got installed…

DevExpress booth mockupWe’ll be there in the Exhibit Hall in force with all the usual suspects: Mark Miller, Seth Juarez, and Mehul Harry (and, er, me), ready to show off our amazing products from DXv2. Booth 407 is the place to be. We’ll be showing you how you can create visually stunning applications with full touch capabilities right now, on the platforms you are currently familiar with, all without waiting for Windows 8. Amanda Christensen and our new UX designer Tim Aidlin will be there as well, handing out t-shirts and wristbands.

Wristbands? Yes, we’re co-sponsoring the Visual Studio 11 Beta celebration party on Tuesday evening at the HAZE Nightclub, one of the hottest of the hot spots in Vegas, but the only way you’re going to be able to get in is if you have a wristband. So make sure you come along to our booth during the first day, Tuesday, to snag said wristband or be prepared to miss out on the fun and just read about it on Twitter.

As regards the conference itself, there will be an A-list of lineup of Speakers and Sessions to dive deep into Visual Studio 11 Beta, including both Mehul and Mark. Mehul will be speaking on “Touch UI in Windows 8 – Five Key Principles” with some HTML5 and JavaScript examples to heighten the interest. Mark has two sessions that continue his well-received Science of Great UI series: “Measuring Quality and Interactions” and “Presenting with Clarity, and the Business Case for Great UI”. All three of these will be well worth attending; it’s a pity I’ll have booth duty or I’d be there too.

Of course, if you are going to be at the show, do please come along to the booth and let’s have a discussion about the present and future of development on Microsoft’s platforms. I’d love to meet you and hear what you have to say. Let’s see what develops.
