Just coming back from Mainz, Germany where Basta 2009 took place this week. It was a great conference where Telerik provided Silver Sponsorship and very nice lanyards to the approximately 700 attendees.
Stephen Forte enjoyed speaking at a German conference for the first time. Check out his post about how to write a WCF service and then call it from Silverlight asynchronously. Telerik OpenAccess ORM expert Jan Blessenohl also gave a presentation on ORM and RIA Services.
You can see a photo from our booth on the evening before the show - as usual Telerik was early and well prepared.
Many professional developers stopped by our booth to see a product demo or just to chat with Telerik representatives. Most visitors were really enthusiastic about our new Silverlight 3 controls and the just-launched free TFS tools. Certainly they were also wondering what the new Telerik product will be...
Around 350 people were pretty happy to receive the cool Telerik .NET Ninja T-Shirt and take part in our raffle to win a Telerik Premium Collection, a XBOX or a trip to the famous Oktoberfest with our Munich team next week.
We were really happy to bring Basta visitors' feedback to our teams and start getting ready for TechEd Europe.
