We’re a few days into Microsoft’s Build developer event, and it’s clear that Microsoft is happy to embrace its new platforms while still giving some thought to the older ones.
Check out our latest Microsoft Build 2018 predictions as we prepare to head to Seattle for the latest in Microsoft developer news.
Over the weekend of March 23, I had the opportunity to head back across the state for the Philly.NET Code Camp. I've been attending as a sponsor for several years. This is easily one of the best-run code camps that I attend, and the volunteers and staff are very accommodating.
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.
I recently hosted a webcast titled "ActiveReports: Solving problems since 1998!" The idea behind this was to showcase some of the features that our current customers have found most useful. I can tell you all the great things about ActiveReports, but it's better to show you the features that our customers have said solve their problems on a daily basis. And that's exactly what we did! We had two amazing sessions with an awesome group in the audience. Throughout the presentation, my co-organizer, Bhupesh Malhotra, was typing away answering the many questions we were getting, which shows that the content was being well received. We had great participation, great questions, and great feedback. Utilizing live polls, we gathered that the audience members were mostly developers and the majority of them had been long-time users of ActiveReports. So we tailored the presentation to suit them. For those who were new to ActiveReports, or to GrapeCity as the producer of ActiveReports, we started off with a brief introduction to what ActiveReports is, what the main features are, and why our customers choose us over our competitors. One such example I mentioned in the webcast was a customer I had spoken with the previous week. His company was worried about the stability of the product and of GrapeCity. I mentioned that GrapeCity has been in business for over 30 years. ActiveReports has been around for the last 20 years. Over those many years, we have come to know and understand reporting and the industry very well. We have an amazing global team of support agents, developers, and managers that stand behind the product. We are dedicated to our customers and their reporting needs. You can't ask for a more stable company or a more stable product! After the introductory slides, we quickly jumped into the demos. From a long list of features , I chose to showcase a few of the more popular ones:
If you were down in Orlando last week at Evolve 2016 then you probably stopped by our booth and met myself, Kelley, Lucas or Alvaro. We were extremely busy for three days showing off the new Xuni controls and demos while talking about Xamarin development with the 1600+ attendees. If you weren't able to attend you can still watch the Xamarin Evolve 2016 keynote.
Thanks to everyone who came out to CodeMash this year. We (GrapeCity) had the pleasure of being a sponsor and getting to talk to developers from Ohio, Indiana, Michigan and beyond. What I like most about the event is its laid back nature which lets developers have a good time while also learning.
Call it self-service reporting or ad-hoc reporting, but the bottom line is that more and more business users are asking for access to corporate data so that they can build their own reports or modify existing operational reports. In a recent webcast, we reviewed the drivers for self-service reporting and how ActiveReports Server with its web-based report designer add-on can help.
Over the past few months, many customers have been asking "What's in it for me?" with regard to using ActiveReports Server along with their existing ActiveReports developer reports. So we went about sharing more details as part of a webinar in July. Our agenda for the webcast was to show how existing customers of ActiveReports could use ActiveReports Server to enhance their applications by adding features like scalability, load balancing, scheduling, and more.
HTML5 has an eventing mechanism that works for HTML elements. But it cannot be used to add events to arbitrary objects, such as controls and collections.
Recently I hosted a webinar for an audience who were new to ActiveReports. We called it ActiveReports - An Introduction. After a great response during registration, I was looking forward to interacting with the audience during the sessions. The audience did not let me down. We had a great turnout for both sessions.
FlexGrid one of the most powerful control in Wijmo 5 suite. You can easily start using FlexGrid by following FlexGrid 101. However, there are three common questions faced by many users while implementing it with AngularJS:
DevLink was my first conference as an employee with ComponentOne. Here's a bit about my experience. Until I got the assignment, I didn't know much about Chattanooga besides them having fast Internet. Good enough for me.
