Next Monday, November 27, kicks off Cyber Monday, and GrapeCity is in on the action! We'll be offering 25% off new licenses across all* GrapeCity Developer Solutions lines.
In case you missed it, here are some of the highlights from the first day of the Microsoft Connect(); developer conference.
Get the highlights of GrapeCity's November 2017 release, which includes ActiveReports 12, ActiveReports 12 Server, and new versions of ComponentOne and Wijmo.
We're proud to announce that Wijmo supports Angular v5 in our current released build (5.20172.359). Upgrading Wijmo’s Angular support has been very smooth thanks to the stability of Angular.
Microsoft’s .NET Core 2.0 and the .NET Standard 2.0 specification have been finalized for a few weeks now, and we’re beginning to see new libraries to support them (such as our own Spread.Services and ComponentOne MVC Edition and Web API controls). For many users, it might not yet be clear why these technologies are important and how they’ll impact their work.
All four of our current product lines—ComponentOne, ActiveReports, Spread, and Wijmo—have merged into a single site, providing you with one easy location for support, forums, blogs, news, and product information.
MS Build 2017 marked the first year Microsoft held the Build conference in Seattle. I arrived in Seattle on Tuesday afternoon, and it was the first time I visited this beautiful city. It was also the first time I used Uber. I booked an UberX through the App, and after several minutes a Toyota Prius arrived in the parking lot designated for Uber service in the airport, so it was pretty easy.
Last week, I had to opportunity to attend Microsoft Build 2017. Before arriving, I must say that my expectations were high, but I was clueless about what Microsoft had in store for this event.
Today Microsoft revealed that they're taking a big step to unify XAML across many of their platforms. The new common markup language that they're calling XAML Standard will finally let you share XAML between Xamarin.Forms and UWP. This is an important step for Microsoft, and builds on the groundwork that they laid with .NET Standard and Xamarin acquisition last year. This also makes the U in UWP feel significantly more universal.
GrapeCity Developer Tools recently sponsored and attended the CodeStock event in Knoxville TN on May 5th and 6th. It was a great event where we got to speak with many different developers, coders, managers, and other IT professionals.
