Let’s explore together!

Welcome to my new blog, DX-Developers.com! I started this blog to share some tips, tricks and cool sample applications with developers who are using the DevExpress suite of products..

First, a little about me:

I’m the Director of Information Technology for Logistic Dynamics, Inc. (LDi), a logistics brokerage firm headquartered in Buffalo, NY. I started with LDi in September of 2005 as the senior developer and have loved coming to work every day since. I’m primarily responsible for development work but I have my hand in a little bit of everything from accounting to marketing to golfing.

I’m also a DevExpress MVP (since 2009) and I spend quite a bit of time answering questions and providing support on the DevExpress Support Center.

I’ve used many of the various DevExpress products, but I’m most skilled with the WinForms, XtraReports, eXpress Persistent Objects (XPO) and ASP.NET products and this blog will primarily target those products.

With that out of the way, here’s what you can expect from my blog:

  1. How to perform commonly-requested tasks with DevExpress products
  2. How to extend the DevExpress products to provide new functionality
  3. Some cool tricks that you might not know you can do with the DevExpress products

The aim of this blog is not to be a general programming site. I’m assuming you already have intermediate knowledge in .NET, WinForms, HTML, ASP.NET and Sql. I’m not here to teach design patterns and best practices–I certainly don’t know them and even if I do, I probably don’t follow them. My samples will be provided in C# only; please do not ask me to convert it to VB.NET for you. I promise you that if you were to really look at a the sample it will make sense to you. The syntax isn’t THAT different or hard to discern and there are plenty of online converters available.

I’m also not going to respond to comments that are not related to the topic posted. Please don’t hijack a topic to ask how to do your homework. If you have a question and you think it would make a good topic for discussion, contact me!

I’m a bit new to blogging & WordPress, so bear with me as I get over these initial learning curves.

With all of that out of the way, let’s go going!
