A New DevExpress.com - Coming Soon to a Browser Near You

09 July 2009

Wanted to take a brief moment and let you guys know that we're hard at work re-designing all our web properties, including devexpress.com. This redesign involved two primary goals: simplify the user experience (for instance to eliminate the client center and unify access to all resources via your login) and spice up the presentation.

Here's a couple of images for your review...and by the way, we just learned that we've won yet another first place award for the ASPxGridView...this time by the readers of Visual Studio Magazine --- Thanks to those who voted for us!

I am really liking the new site, even as an employee! The team are bringing it bang up to date and they are doing a fantastic job.

Please put a special emphasis on making sure it loads faster (and in FireFox too!) than this one does!  It always annoys me that the pages loads so slow!! :P

Otherwise, the new design looks really nice!

Looks really good I was just thinking the other day it looked like it needed a bit of a refresh to bring it up to date with improvements in web technologies. This looks like it will, fantastic work as always.

If you are open to suggestions I would like to see the searching centralized across the p2p and your own knowledge base and code samples. Hopefully with a good set of search options to quickly filter to what you are looking for. I find the current information handy but you end up searching in a couple of places and it can take a while to filter down your results.

Please, remove that purple colour, the rest looks nice though.

A lot of web sites abuse "blue" and it looks like you may be stuck on blue again! :)  My suggestion is don't over blue.  Even this page here, look at the blue borders, etc. :)  I used to have a lot of blue and moved away from it for gray tones.  Checkout the Apple site (cough cough) for simple, elegant, easy to navigate, easy to read.  I've always admired that one.

The new site loads much-much faster, within a few seconds. Also, pages/products/info is easier to find. Ordering vastly improved. Lots of improvements overall.

Justin: Ya, I'm working on Ray to get him to use FF and/or Chrome.

Neal: We're DX! DX blue, ftw! Big Smile

Hmmm, why don't'chya use that theme concept you have in ASPXperience and let the user choose the theme for their DX site? :)  You can be blue, I'll be black or silver. :)

Would be nice if you had a mobile version for those checking in on the blog or to check the status of an issue. It is dreadfully slow with iPhone.

Neal,

Hmm, we could do that theme changing but there's a lot of other considerations like the images for the site. Anyways, there's a lot of work that's gone into the design+site already and with trying to get it ready and out the door, we'll have to consider that idea for another day.
