Thank you so much to the customers, friends and fans who braved the London crowds to come and join Rory, Oliver, Don and myself at Ye Olde Watling Pub for the inaugural UK DevExpress Meetup. We all had a wonderful time and it was absolutely fantastic to meet and talk to so many of you, especially during this busy festive season.
I am sure those of you that were there would join me in extending a big thank you to Jackie for looking after us and coming to the rescue when our Old Spots started to smoke in the tureen! Nothing weird for those who weren’t present, just our delicious sausages getting a bit too much of a smoking.
Rory, Don, Oliver and I were very grateful to have the opportunity to mix with such a friendly, engaged and passionate group of DevExpress users. Rory told Don and I, as we walked to catch the tube, that he had tried to find people who had something negative to report to us but he kept receiving positive feedback from happy people. I don’t think that many companies could bring together a group of customers and not get one bad comment all night. We are blown away by that kind of support from our customers.
It was a pleasure to meet one of our UK-based DevExpress MVPs, Robert Anderson. I wish I could explain why I look so pained in the picture that was captured of us mid-conversation, but I honestly have no idea. Captions in the comments please!
For anyone who isn’t familiar with our DevExpress MVPs, take a moment to visit the webpage and learn a little more about them. They are users, just like you, but they go an extra mile or more to help other users get the most from their DevExpress experience. Some of them are available for consultancy opportunities, so please do connect with them.
If you want to join us at the next DevExpress Meetup in the UK, we’ll be in Leeds on Wednesday 14th December at The Brewery Tap. We’d love to see you there.
