DevExpress Live Classroom Training on Reporting

DevExpress Data Blog
30 July 2013

One of my favorite things to do is to get up in front of a crowd and teach. I have been teaching off and on for the majority of my adult life. During that time I have taught at two high schools, a technical school, and at a full-fledged University. The best part of teaching a class is the interaction that enriches not only the students, but especially the teacher. I have learned a great deal from the many people with which I have had the chance to interact.

When I was presented with the opportunity to teach in a classroom setting I jumped at the chance. I am tremendously excited to announce that I will be teaching a full three day course on our powerful reporting suite. I have used this product off and on since 2006. I have also had the opportunity to provide input and direction on the product for the last three years. In short, I am confident that we will be able to discuss your particular reporting scenarios in a way that will make you more productive and successful with reports. Additionally, given that I am also a program manager over the product, your feedback and commentary will not be a mere wish list of things the product could be; I will take these suggestions seriously by taking them directly to the development team.

What will the class cover?

The way I understand reporting is through a three pronged approach:

  1. Data – understanding how to acquire and shape data in anticipation of creating reports
  2. Layout – understanding how to use the report designer in order to create stylish and informative reports
  3. Presentation – understanding how to visualize reports in your particular environment

Here is a smattering of topics we will cover in order to pay off the three main points outlined above:

Report Banding
Database Binding
Object Binding
Grouping, Sorting
Filtering, Summarization
Parameters, Calculated Fields
Styling by Inheritance
Styling by Declaration
Styling by Name
Document Map
Table of Contents
Visualizing with WinForms
Visualizing with ASP.NET WebForms
Visualizing with ASP.NET MVC
Visualizing with WPF
Visualizing with Silverligh
WinForms End User Report Designer
WPF End User Report Designer
Silverlight End User Report Designer


This class will be delivered directly in the DevExpress headquarters on October 7-9 2013. One of the benefits of doing it this way is the unprecedented access this gives you to ask any of our personnel any question you might have!

A Caution

Unfortunately seating is limited. Based on the demand I am happy to do this class as often as you require. IN addition to that I am currently developing ideas for additional classes in the space f Data Shaping, Analysis, and Presentation. Should you have any additional suggestions for classes, please do not hesitate to contact ur training Director Oliver Sturm. It is under his watchful eye that these courses are being prepared and administered.

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