I was in Amsterdam yesterday and did a talk for the dotNed user group on functional programming in C#. It’s always a great topic to talk about, and as usual everybody was very interested. We spent a bit more time on the Parallel Extensions than I was anticipating – the main reason I even start explaining Parallel Extensions is that I want to point out where their functionality ends – but that was fine. I think I was able to answer a bunch of questions on that, which is always a good thing.
A few of the guys were very happy about DevExpress and didn’t hesitate to say so either 😃 (And no, this doesn’t mean that everybody else was horribly unhappy about DevExpress, the “others” just didn’t say anything on the topic. 😃) Especially the Windows Forms controls were mentioned as being fantastically stable and feature rich, with brilliant documentation. Always nice to hear that!
Thanks to all the great people in Amsterdam for having me there!
Sorry, this blog does not support comments. Why not?
I used various blog hosting services since this blog was established in 2005, but unfortunately they turned out to be unreliable in the long term and comment threads were lost in unavoidable transitions. At this time I don't want to enable third-party services for comments since it has become obvious in recent years that these providers invariably monetize information about their visitors and users.
