BASTA, Germany - .NET Everywhere!

Gary Busy on the BASTA BoothXAF, CodeRush and German Sausages

Evangelist’s Log. Star date: twenty-three zero nine. .NET architecture and application lifecycle management, Visual Studio, database solutions, web application development … BASTA has it all. With a formidable line-up of speakers and a seemingly endless supply of beer and German sausages (bratwurst, frankfurter and wiener have been identified so far) the attendees at this Autumn’s BASTA event are really spoilt for choice.

The Conference

We’ve reached the half way point here this week and it has been a great event to have experienced, although I must admit, my German skills have certainly been noted as somewhat lacking by the locals! The conference is being held in the Rheingoldhalle (Rheingold Hall) in Mainz. It is a beautiful setting, with the Rheine right outside the door of the conference. The morning drive has been fantastic for the past few days with the sun shimmering on the water as we drive along the banks of the river towards our day’s work. What better way to set yourself up for a day.Big Crowds Watching CodeRush

What Have We Been Up To?

Gary and I have been discussing products, questions and future plans with our customers and introducing new folk to the DevExpress way of life. Much to our surprise, the runaway success of our time at BASTA so far has been XAF. Gary has been in his element talking enterprise-level design concepts, department scale projects and what the product team has in store for XAF during 2010. We were also thrilled to hear that one customer had saved his organisation 10,000 Euro by choosing the XtraPivotGrid for their implementation over an alternative POC offering. Astounding!

Oliver has presented on various topics including The Future of C#, Immutable Data and Functional Programming, and the attendees have been showing their enthusiasm for CodeRush and Refactor! Pro as always, with demos (in German!) gathering the crowds.

We’re off to get back to the matter in hand now … are there any more sausages to be had?
