Then & Now


It’s been a while since my last post, but there has been so much happening. The best part of the first half of this year has been spent sharing with developers all around Australia the power of Microsoft Azure coupled with the comprehensive controls from DevExpress.  Everything from ASP.NET WebForms and MVC, to cross platform delights with DevExtreme Mobile, and don’t forget the Xamarin Form controls.

This week I will be doing a special presentation in Sydney showing how to create hybrid Azure solutions using DevExpress ASP.NET controls for administering your users, the ASPxFileManager and ASPxUploader control for adding unprecedented functionality, creating both Mobile Services and Web Apps to provide the perfect infrastructure for a cross platform mobile app with DevExtreme Mobile. Since sometimes the power of the desktop is required, we will also be taking a look at how to combine all of this with a WinForms application sporting the XtraReports suite.

In July (and September), I’ll be sharing some of these ideas with the Newcastle Dot Net User Group, so even if you can’t make the Sydney Azure Camp, there are still opportunities to see the technologies at work.

Stay tuned, July/August will be the start of the WPF series webinars, anyone with an interest in the latest technologies and future proving your desktop development skills will find this set of presentations invaluable.

….. I promise to keep up the posts
