I have announced two new public classes for DevExpress technology for 2012 – well, at least for the first few months. They both take place at the well-known venue in Bad Ems, Germany, but they’re both targeted at an international audience and it’s very likely they’ll be held in English! (That’s unless only German attendees should be there.) Here you go (click the links for all the details [LINKS REMOVED]):

Expert DXperience ASP.NET – March 1-2 2012 (2 days) – Early bird pricing available until February 1st 2012!

I had a great time at my Pragmatic .NET Architecture workshop yesterday at Software Architect 2011 in London – thank you very much to everybody who was there! As promised, I’m putting up the slides and the concept document, as far as we developed it during the day. Here you go:

This is weird… I had entirely forgotten about putting up the slides and samples from last week’s BASTA! 2011 conference – because I was completely convinced I had already done so! I had some trouble getting proper internet connectivity in the days following the event, and I abandoned several attempts to upload the files to my server, and then somehow my mind auto-applied a great big DONE to the task. I apologize for the delay. BASTA! was a great event again – larger than ever, apparently – and here’s a thank you to those of you who made it to one of my talks. Like I said during my presentations, if you have any thoughts you’d like to discuss, or questions of any kind, send me email!

Here are the files with slides and samples now:

I have recently completed my first course for the Pluralsight on-demand library: C# 4.0 New Features. If you’re not familiar with the Pluralsight library, I recommend you check it out - it’s a brilliant resource!

On September 1st, I’ll also deliver a webcast for Pluralsight, called Being dynamic with C# 4.0 – currently on the list here. See you there!

On September 29, I’ll be in Braunschweig, Germany, to deliver a talk called Pragmatic Architecture. This is a short version of my popular workshop, which I’m currently doing at various conferences in Europe. Unfortunately for my English language readers, the talk will be in German – but you may be able to see the whole thing in English at this year’s Software Architect conference in London! Here are the infos about the event in Braunschweig. I hope to see you there! Thanks to the user group organizers and to INETA Europe for making this happen!

Here’s a new version of my Electric Editing plugin. Did you know the first version came out in April 2005? Unbelievable how time flies! This version is built against DXCore 11.1.7. Here’s the download: CR_ElectricEditing-1.2.6.1.zip

Of course, as ever, if you don’t know what Electric Editing is, please check out this page, the various linked blog posts and the comments for the background info! Have fun!

I’m proud to have two separate announcements to make today!

I had a fantastic time at NDC 2011 – thanks to everybody who came to my talks, and to the organizers of course! Here are the downloads for the slides and samples I was using:

I have just made information available on my next DevExpress class: [LINK REMOVED] You can find all the details by following the link. The class is one day longer than my earlier ASP.NET classes, but there are some important differences - including these:

  • It’s one day longer, for a total of three days

  • I call it an “Expert” class, which means it’s meant to go to more depth. Any questions are welcome and will be discussed as much as time allows, plus more time can be spent on in-depth discussion of certain important features.

  • Additional content will be included, perhaps most importantly the MVC Extensions that are now part of the DevExpress ASP.NET portfolio.

  • Of course it is updated to the latest version of DevExpress tools, most likely 2011.1.

Last week I did a webinar for DevExpress on XPO, their object/relational mapping product. It went well, I had fun, and around 60 or so people stayed till the end, so it can’t have been half bad! 😉 If you would like to see the webinar, it’s now up on the DevExpress site – click this link to watch it. I had a few requests for the samples I was using and writing during the webinar, so I’m making them available for download. Have fun!
