Developer Express at Basta in Germany

I was at Basta conference in Germany last week. In between everything else I had to do at that conference, I found time to show Developer Express products to a lot of people. I did a lot of demos of XAF, as well as our other products like CodeRush and Refactor! and our .NET components. This was the biggest Basta Spring conference ever, and the exhibition area was very well attended.

The feedback was great! Especially, people really liked the final version of XAF, with the Visual Studio integration taken to new levels. If you haven't seen it yourself yet, I suggest you go to the XAF area on our website and have a good look.

I'd like to thank everybody I met there for their feedback and for being interested in our technology. And I want to apologize to those who saw me fight the huge green monster machine I had to borrow from my friend John, when my own laptop suddenly died - some usability aspects of that thing (especially its keyboard, which had a loose y-key) were hard to get used to.

obviously not many people like the XAF, that's why devExpress puts so much attention to it (marketing rule).

I bet 10 times as much people want WPF than XAF.

Linton, good to hear there is a XAF community, do you have a productive application based on XAF already? if yes, is there a link to it?

Yes. We have a "productive" app on XAF and the client is very happy. By contract I cannot disclose the details with regard to the business domain. But I would be happy to answer any specific questions you may have about XAF.

Christoph,

We've had this discussion in enough public forums now. We've heard your point of view and we've described ours to you, supported by enough customer feedback to show that our position is just as valid as yours may be. Please refrain from posting any more such sarcastic comments or we are going to remove them.

Oliver,

I paid for XAF, so I might comment I dont hear anything about WPF from devExpress side, or is this not a valid question?

Europe, Germany, Austria and here in Switzerland, a lot of people get excited about WPF? how was your experience at Basta?
