I had a great time this week at DevWeek 2011 – many thanks to everybody who came to my talks! Here are the slides and samples from these talks:

Mehul just posted about it: there’s a free DevExpress XPO webinar coming up on March 31st, 2011. Presented by, well, me 😃 Many of you may remember that I and XPO go way back, and during my time at DevExpress I had a chance to work with the team that made the product and, so I hope, push it a little in the right direction. These days, XPO is still a product I like to use and to recommend to my consulting clients [LINK REMOVED] – together with XAF or on its own, it’s usually my .NET data layer technology of choice. Recently added functionality in the area of multi-tier support have made it a lot stronger again. My Expert XPO training class [LINK REMOVED] is taking place in London, UK, in May 2011, so if you’re interested, please follow the link and check it out. Meanwhile, if you’re on the fence, or just generally interested in what’s new and what’s cool, take the time to join me for the webinar!

Version of Electric Editing is now available here:

This build is compiled against DXCore 10.2.5. Unfortunately I noticed, a bit late, that 10.2 changed a few things that broke assembly references with the older build. My apologies for any inconveniences! Oh, and of course if you don?t have a clue what Electric Editing is, check out this overview with the various posts linked from there!

Thank you very much to everybody who made it to my talks at Basta Spring 2011! It was a great conference and I had a fantastic time. The slides and samples for my talks are available for download now. Enjoy!

I’m planning to do at least two DevExpress product classes in Europe in 2011 (in addition to the XPO class announced previously [LINK REMOVED]). Unfortunately it’s hard to do much more than that, but there are lots of topics to choose from: ASP.NET (WebForms), the new MVC products, WinForms, Silverlight, WPF, XAF, … and of course I’ll also have to decide whether to go more for introduction or overview classes or rather expert knowledge. Any feedback you can give me about this will be very useful! Please let me know what you think!

For my Expert XPO class [LINK REMOVED], I have now announced the location: the Novotel London West in Hammersmith, London, UK. Early Bird pricing is available now [LINK REMOVED]!

This is the European training class on DevExpress XPO for 2011 – if you use XPO, or consider using it, be there!

Next week, on the evening of February 17th, I’ll be doing a talk for the .NET Usergroup Frankfurt in Bad Homburg, Germany. The title is Dynamik in .NET 4.0 (that’s not a spelling mistake, that’s German – but you can guess what it means). They tell me you really need to sign up for this, but there are currently seats available. Follow this link to a page with details about the event, or go to the main page for the user group, which has a link to sign up. I hope to see you there!

Just a very quick note: the slides and samples I used in my DDD 9 talk on Functional Programming in C# are now available for download. Here’s the link: If you were there, thank you! If you weren’t - tough luck, go pre-order my book on the subject 😉

My class Business Apps with DXperience ASP.NET [LINK REMOVED] takes place in the Netherlands ten days from now, and today I found that I still have an MSDN Subscription to give away. Sorry, a Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate with MSDN, that’s what it seems to be called these days. Apparently the subscription will expire at the end of the year, so I can’t keep it any longer. The training class comes to mind as the just-around-the-corner event perfect to give this away, so I thought I’d do a raffle with the attendees there! Of course, if you haven’t signed up yet, you still can.

Version of Electric Editing is now available here:

This build is compiled against DXCore 10.1.7, and tested in Visual Studio 2008 as well as 2010. Enjoy! Oh, and of course if you don’t have a clue what Electric Editing is, check out this overview with the various posts linked from there!
