Devin Rader's Blog I write the code...
We'll lets hope the rest of this week does not go like this. I am on my way to Las Vegas to for MIX08 and my 12:15 AA flight from Newark was canceled when I got here. New flight time is 4:45 with a winter storm looming off to the west and severe weather heading up from the south. <sigh> Update: Spoke too soon. Flight to DFW is now delayed until ......

Like spoon feeding water to a man who has walked the desert for more than a year, news about IE8 has been slow to come, but Chris Wilson and Dean Hachamovitch cracked open the flood gates a bit today by announcing that IE8 has been able to pass the Acid2 test (yay!!!). For developers this represents a huge step forward for IE and is hopefully the beginning ......

With 2008 right around the corner I am putting together my travel plans, part of which includes visits to developers, designers, architects and CTO's who's challenges include building web-based applications. If you are a user of ASP.NET user interface controls (Infragistics or any others) and have an hour to spare some time next year, then I would love ......

This past Tuesday morning we released the first public CTP of NetAdvantage for ASP.NET Aikido, a project that has consumed a significant portion of my life for the past 6 months. The CTP represents the introduction of a new series of controls based on our new Aikido framework, which is the first significant re-architecture of the product since its inception ......

In August, 4 of us IG employees (Jason Beres, Ambrose Little, Grant Hinkson and myself) all spent several long weeks churning out in record time the Wrox Silverlight 1.0 book (available now on Amazon.com). I was just told by our Director of PR, that Infragistics is going to be giving away copies of the book at our book at Dev Connections, so if you're ......

An interesting phenomena of working at a tech company is that the average age is around quote young. We @ Infragistics are fortunate though to have several of the more seasoned citizens working with us as well, including our esteemed VP of Engineering, Steve, who in an effort to remind all of us <grampa_voice>young whipper snappers</grampa_voice> ......

I write this entry on an Ibera flight on my way to TechEd Europe, which I have never been to before. I am really looking forward to seeing the differences between this conference and the TechEd NORAM verison of which I have attended for the past 5 years.

Its once again its time for the weeklong geek-fest known as TechEd. This year is my 5th TechEd in a row, and I am looking forward to getting to reconnect with many of the people I only see at conferences and events.
