GIDS 2011 – Developer Summit Kick Off

So the waiting is over and here it is the GIDS 2011 is going to start from today,I started early in the morning from my home knowing very well the bangalore traffic and dont want to be victim of the traffic.

Reached IISC campus around 9.00 am and got the registrations done and collected my goodies. Fine its the time to look around for the stalls in expo and got really interested once I got to see DevExpress stall ,how can I forget ASPXPivotGrid from them which I had used for one of my customer project and that saved lot of my time and as well won the customer confidence. Just checked into the stall and met Mark and his buddies ,the guy who leads the ASP.NET and was really pumped up when I said that I used ASPXPivotGrid and he immediately asked me to give an video testimonial and I accepted with pleasure. So my day at GIDS 2011 started with an interesting note…aahh . I can’t wait but no more the sessions yes, I had no seats left when I try to enter the Main Hall and was asked by the personals of GIDS to rush for Hall A and watch the live video session.

Not Bad ,The first session was interesting since it was one close to my heart ,the topic was “Building Quality Into Your Application Throughout the Lifecycle” and I should really “Ben” was excellent in the way he expressed his thoughts about TDD (test driven development) and session really good starter for GIDS 2011. aaah.. the next session is so exciting as its by the gentlemen “Mark Miller” from DevExpress on the topic “Stepping into the next near future of the IDE” and shown some excellent demo on the future IDE’s,especially I liked about the flow of verbs and the data flow diagram which is generated on the code behind and just made me madly looking for the IDE. Wow man when he shown the way to code¬† using the “Guitar” and man “Enables the musicians to code”… wow it was mazing I can a write the code using guitar which altogether a different dimension from now on I will look at Guitar going forward.. Miller you are rocking man….

So far the GIDs 2011 was so good….looking forward for further sessions.
