September 2013 - Posts

  • Dateline: September 2013; Event: Basta; Location: Mainz

    We’re here at the fall Basta, which, like last year, is in the Rheingoldhalle along the Rhine in Mainz. And by “we” I mean the most prolific German speakers we have at DevExpress: Oliver Sturm (who, it must be admitted, is German), John Martin (who lives here in Germany), Seth Juarez (whose fave German word, and the only one, seems to be ‘fantastisch’), and yours truly (who can only order two beers at once – zwei Bier bitte – because I’ve forgotten the word for ‘one’). Luckily for Seth and I, many attendees know some English and so we’re able to present our products and answer technical questions.

    If the worst comes to the worst however, Oliver is able to pick up the baton. Here he is doing a rapid presentation of DevExtreme and PhoneJS:

    Yes I was right at the back of that crowd, holding my phone in the air to take that snap. Mind you immediately after the presentation, we raffled off a copy of DXperience to a lucky attendee. Tomorrow, there’s a similar chance to win Universal, so if you are at the show, please come on over before 1:30 and grab a raffle ticket. And a t-shirt (Eat-Sleep-Code makes a comeback). And a popper. And a go at the golf putting range we have by the side of the booth. Ah, heck, just come over and have a chat – I’m amazed at how many people I recognize from last year.

    There’s a great line-up of speakers – I’m certainly impressed enough to wish I could go to some of the talks. Plenty of sodas and water to drink, great food: the organizers are to be applauded at such a great show. If you’re not here, you’d better make a reservation now for 12 months from now.

  • Going back to iOS6? Flat chance, now that the PhoneJS demos are updated

    I know, I know. You’ve spent all day since 10am Pacific trying to update your iPhone/iPad to iOS7 and have finally got through the download crashes and the verification server issues and now have a shiny new look to your iDevice. Now, it’s time to play and see how the rest of the world out there has kept up with the new look and feel.

    Of course, you just want to see what PhoneJS looks like on your new mobile Safari, and see if you can catch out those fine DevExpress developers.

    Er, sorry:

    (As you can see, actual screenshots from my iPhone.)

    Needless to say, since PhoneJS is one of the very few HTML5/JS framework solutions to automatically switch your presentation UI according to the device, these demo apps look like iOS6 on an iOS6 device, like Android on an Android device, and like Windows Phone 8 on a Windows Phone. It’s just that now, if we detect iOS7, we flatten the UI for you and get the font right. After all, you have more than enough work writing the app in the first place.

LIVE CHAT

Chat is one of the many ways you can contact members of the DevExpress Team.
We are available Monday-Friday between 7:30am and 4:30pm Pacific Time.
