Tulsa TechFest was at the Tulsa Campus of Oklahoma State University. There was over 24 different tracks staffed by 63 different speakers with well over 500 attendees. I was grateful for the opportunity to speak. My topics included:

  1. Machine Learning for .NET
  2. Functional C#
  3. Report Driven Design

The best part of the conference was the amount of giveaways! Among the many fabulous prizes was a couple of licenses to CodeRush as well as DXperience Enterprise. David Walker did a tremendous job of creating and running this event for the pas 5 years. One of the recurring themes with attendees was the question: “What is the benefit to using your tools?”

As developers, we often spend a great deal of time on the mundane aspects of software engineering when we really want to spend time on the business rules that should be the crux of our project. Let us worry about your presentation layer. We have dedicated engineers who worry about nothing else! If you calculate the price of our most expensive license (we are not ashamed of our prices: they are on the very front page when you highlight “Subscriptions”) using say $50 an hour, our suite costs what you would pay a programmer for single week. I can almost guarantee that there does not exist a developer in the universe that can produce the depth and breadth of tooling we offer. Additionally, with support as our mandate, you will receive the utmost care when you run into an issue. Why wouldn’t you use our tooling? We offer a competitive advantage to you over those who do not!

As always, if there are any question and/or comments feel free to get a hold of me.

"I can almost guarantee that there does not exist a developer in the universe that can produce the depth and breadth of tooling we offer. "

I would beg to differ, unless you were referring to a developer not being able to complete this much work in a week.  Then I would agree.

Great clarification! That's exactly what I meant.
