  • UI Superhero Roadshow: free UX training for .NET developers

    A couple of months before we released v14.1 of DevExpress Universal we started planning a new kind of training: sessions on user interfaces and experiences, by developers for developers. After all, with v14.1 we introduced a whole set of new demo apps that showed off great user experiences, optimized for the new generation of touch devices and screens. The intent was to use the expertise of our UX and graphics designers to provide high-impact, ultra modern user interfaces that you, our customers, could copy or modify for your own applications.

    That’s all fine and dandy, but sometimes it’s handy to understand why our designers made the choices they made; the principles that they were embodying in these experiences. So we had a chat with an old developer friend of DevExpress, Billy Hollis, and twisted the arm of our own Mark Miller in order to come up with a compelling and educational training event on what goes in to make a user interface a great experience. And, wow, did we succeed. Mark will talk about the science and biology behind great UI (if you’ve seen him present on this topic in the past, be aware that he’s taken it to the next level), and Billy will delve into what developers can do to understand why modern UI is so compelling and intuitive, and present patterns and examples to help you on the way.

    That’s all well and good, but then we ratchet the content to 11 by giving you the guidance you need by showing you how to apply what you’ve just learned with Billy and Mark. We shall target two platforms: ASP.NET with Mehul Harry, and WinForms with Seth Juarez.

    Here are the times and places we have so far (but please note, these are subject to change):

    New York City, NY
    Friday, September 12, 2014
    11 Times Square, 6th floor/Microsoft Corporation, New York NY 10036

    Chicago, IL
    Tuesday, September 16, 2014
    200 E Randolph Suite 200, Chicago IL 60601

    Miami, FL

    Exciting, right? Well, I’d better tell you how to register, then. Visit us at our Roadshow page, read more about each session, watch a video of Mark and Billy discussing what will happen, and then click on the city where you’d be able to attend.

    Looking forward to seeing you there, wherever it may be!
