eXpand on Hanselminutes

XAF Team Blog
16 December 2011

First of all I would like to say a big thank you to Scott for having me on his show. I really enjoyed our conversation even though they said I worked for one of our competitors in the intro!

Framework Series: The eXpand Framework with Apostolis Bekiaris

For those of you who have not had a chance to listen to the show yet Scott and I had an illuminating discussion about the benefits of open source. I found the comments Scott made about Microsoft’s attitude towards these kind of projects particularly revealing. Of course we found plenty of time to chat about eXpand, including some of the history of the project and the important role that our contributors play. It is clear that Scott recognizes the value of a healthy open source community like ours. Also on the agenda  were the advantages of the special relationship between XAF and eXpand as well as the support that DevExpress gives to the world of open source.

Thanks again to all of you out there in the community this is your framework and we all deserve a share of the glory!

Good show Apostolis, I especially like how Scott sees Expand/DevExpress as an example for Microsoft how to embrace open source.
