DWX Developer Week 2018 kicks off next week in Nuremberg Germany

From June 25th until June 28th, another great event is taking place. This time John and I will head to Nuremberg Germany for DWX Developer Week edition 2018.

We'll be there showing you all the new features that come with our v18.1 release and handing out our free Eat-Sleep-Code T-Shirts. We will also do our daily raffles where you could walk off with a DevExpress platform subscription or one of the original DevExpress Backpacks. I will also have session about .NET Core and Dependency Injection.

If you're attending to Developer week, make sure to pay our booth a visit.

NDC Oslo 2018 Impressions

Last week, John and I where in Oslo for the NDC Oslo 2018 Edition.

It was, as expected, a big and awesome conference with top speakers and a lot of attendees. Some of the speakers stopped by our booth to say 'hi'.

There was a lot of interest in our v18.1 release, and a ran demos on all of our products. On the second day there was the attendee party with the best Norwegian 80's & 90's cover band Loveshack.

We organized daily raffles for DevExpress backpacks or even a platform subscription of choice!

Techorama 2018 Impressions

In the week of May 21st, John, Julian and I where at the Techorama 1018 event in Antwerp, Belgium.

As always, it was a very good conference with lots of existing customers and developers who haven’t heard of us. We were able to show a lot of new v18.1 features and people seemed to like those. I did a well attended partner-session about our VisualStudio productivity tool CodeRush, where I was able to get the “Wow” and “Ahh” responses from the audience.

Below is an impression of the conference:

Guess what? . . . DevExpress will be there as well!

Bootstrap ASP.NET Core & WebForms - Sparkline Control available (v18.1)

The Sparkline control is a simplified compact version of a Line chart control. It only contains one series. It is used most commonly in areas which leave very little space but a visual indicator is required. An example is by integrating the Sparkline in a grid column.

Since the charts available in the Bootstrap ASP.NET Core & WebForms control suite are derived from the DevExtreme Chart controls, it was really a no-brainer for us to make it available for the Bootstrap Controls as well.

Though the Sparkline is a compact control, it has a number of interesting features.

8 types of Series

It supports 8 different series types:

Binding to data

The Sparkline control provides several customization abilities like:

  • Series and points colors
  • Tooltip font
  • Point type

You can read more about it here.

The Sparkline can be integrated in a GridView column as show in this demo.

Try it?

Did you know that you can test this feature together with all the other exciting new DevExpress candy even if you’re not a customer (yet)?
