Next week, on April 16 and 17, DevExpress in the forms of Mehul Harry, Mark Miller, John Martin, and yours truly will be in Den Haag (or The Hague, or La Haye, depending on your chosen language) for Microsoft TechDays 2014. It’s going to be a blast! It’ll be even better if you’re there too to make it a round 4 out of 4.

To help set the scene – at least it’s the right country – here’s the view from my Amsterdam hotel window just now. I’m afraid I’ve never been to Den Haag, so don’t have any pictures of that yet.

Not only will we have a booth at the conference, manned 12 hours per day, from 7 until 7, but we’re having a Mixer evening for our customers where we’ll be happy to ply you with your libation of choice in return for some honest feedback on how we’re doing and what you’d like to see from DevExpress in the future. This Mixer is at the Novotel World Forum on April 16 from 8:00 PM till 10:00 PM in the hotel bar and lobby. John has already sent out invitations for this (and has collected a bunch of replies), but if we managed to miss you and you want to be there, come visit us at the booth that first day.

But there’s more! Both Mark and Mehul have speaking slots during the conference…

Mark is speaking on Science of Great UI. “Get a big boost on your UI skills. If you believe you’re not an artist, that UI is merely subjective, or that Great UI takes too much effort, then this session is for you. We’ll learn the essence with simple, easy-to-retain guidelines. Regardless of whether you’re building interfaces for watches, phones, tablets, desktops, elevators, automobiles, or interplanetary spaceships; you’ll learn how to reduce visual noise, enhance clarity, lower barriers to entry, and make your interfaces a pleasure to use. It’s all about making customers satisfied, and this entertaining and information-packed session will show you how.” (Scheduled for April 16 at 1:15 PM.)

Mehul is presenting on PhoneJS: Write Once, Deploy to Multiple Mobile Platforms. “Creating mobile apps is tough enough. Now try supporting a native look and feel for the top mobile platforms (iOS, Android, Windows Phone 8, and Tizen). This session will show you how HTML5 and JavaScript can create cross-platform and native-style apps using PhoneJS.” (Scheduled for April 17th at 10:50 AM.)

So, all in all, this visit to the Netherlands is going to be fun. I do hope to see you at the booth!

Hopefully you like your stay in our little country. The (political) center of The Hague is nice to visit. But nearby cities like Delft and Leiden are worth visiting as well. Maybe see you at the TechDays!
