Visual Studio Magazine Readers Choice Awards for the win!

12 November 2012

Visual Studio Magazine has just announced its 2012 Readers Choice Awards and DevExpress is well represented among the winners with eight Gold awards and three Silvers:

Chart, Gauge & Graph Components – GOLD

XtraCharts Suite

Component Suite: Desktop – GOLD

DXperience Enterprise

Component Suite: Web – SILVER

DXperience ASP.NET Edition

Databases, Data Development & Modeling – SILVER

eXpress Persistent Objects (XPO)

General Development Tools (Includes IDEs) – SILVER


Grid & Spreadsheet Components – GOLD

XtraGrid Suite

PDF & Print/Preview – GOLD

XtraPrinting Library

Reporting, Data Analysis & Visualization – GOLD

XtraReports Suite

Software Design, Frameworks & Modeling Tools – GOLD

eXpressApp Framework (XAF)

Text, OCR, Scanning & Barcode Components – GOLD

DevExpress Rich Text Editor

UI, Toolbar, Menu & Ribbon Components – GOLD

XtraBars Suite

Now winning such awards always evoke good feelings, of that there is no doubt. But in this case, these awards were the results of votes by the readers of the magazine, which magnifies the sentiment. In other words it was our customers, people like yourself, who took the time to mark the ballot in our favor. Thank you to everyone who did so, you are the best customers a company could wish for!

Not only that, but I notice that some of the products that gained awards have done so last year too, And the year before that. Wow, we must be really on the right track if these products keep on winning awards year after year. Rest assured though that we shall not rest on these particular laurels: we are frantically (er, nimbly, or perhaps agilely) preparing version 12.2 of DXperience. Remember we’ve already announced the release date – December 3, 2012 – so our feet are becoming toasty from being so close to the fire!

Let’s see what develops…

First of all: congrats!

While going through the list it struck me that the DevEx products that are mentioned are all in the 'established technologies' (WinForms and ASP.NET). I don't find any trace of 'newer technologies' that seem to get a lot of attention currenlty like javascript, HTML5... This is even the case if you look at the complete list, including the mentioned products from other vendors.

There is a lot buzz around mobile development, HTML5, WinRT, javascript,... Every vendor is working hard in these newer areas, so it will be very interesting to compare next years list with this one.

I hope that DevEx can/will shine there to by offering great tools. I am pretty sure you will. The recent announcements look very promising.  Let's see what develops...
