Resident IT guy Trevor Piotrowski kicked off the morning with the thing kids love best: destruction. After walking the assembled through all the different components--hard drive, motherboard (which elicited some giggles), DVD, RAM--the kids set about pulling them apart.
If you were one of the lucky folks to snatch up Build 2017 passes before they sold out, I hope you'll stop by the GrapeCity booth on the expo floor. I'll be there, handing out our famous socks and answering basic questions about ComponentOne Studio, Wijmo, Xuni, ActiveReports, and Spread.

While it’s not a familiar spreadsheet format in North America, it’s very popular in Japan, and makes a lot of sense once you understand how it works.
InputPanel, a popular WinForms control that acts like a complete data-entry form, is now available in WPF and UWP. InputPanel manages the design, layout, appearance, and behavior of multiple input components. Here's a two-minute video that walks you through how to get started in WPF.

I always loved Visual Studio, and finally, my computer caught up with it!
It's .NET's 15th birthday! Given that ComponentOne Studio has had an inextricable relationship with .NET from the start, we asked some of our experienced developers about their impressions of the new kid on the block.
