Can You Write Code Faster than this Spokesmodel?

01 November 2007

Meet Sara, a spokesmodel (not a programmer)

Sara - not a programmer

If you are going to be in Las Vegas between Nov 5-7 and want to see whether you can write code as fast and as efficienctly as Sara who has no programming experience (well, only about 6 hours of experience with Visual Studio and CodeRush), then make certain to stop by our booth (#131). The premise is simple - you get to use Visual Studio .NET and she will be using Visual Studio .NET along with CodeRush. If you can perform a set of straightforward tasks faster than she can, you get to step into our money booth and have a chance to win some serious money.

For those who are not attending DevConnections, fear not...We will be recording all of the action in our booth and broadcasting it on www.devexpress.com.

Not really designed by Mark Miller - but he did not object when we mentioned it to him.

Oh my. I wasn't going to attend DevConnections but I think I'll have to make it to Vegas now... ;)

Contest sounds fun, can't wait to see the video.

Ray,

Were you serious with this "meet Sara" invite?

I was serious - you could have not only met Sara, but you could have gone head to head and tried to out do her ...

She was super hot. The picture above doesn't even do her justice.

Wont comment on her appearance...but the fact that she had never used a PC in her life - did not even know the purpose of CTRL + C...the fact that in 6 hours she was up and running in CodeRush and the fact that she blew away 10 guys speaks volumes about her. In one instance, she beat a seasoned developer while coding in VB and then switched to C# and still finished before he did. :-)
