For the first time ever, Xceed will be exhibiting at the PDC! Stop by our exhibitor booth at PDC 2008 next week and ask any questions you might have, make suggestions for future releases, or just come and chat! We will be demonstrating version 3.0 of Xceed DataGrid for WPF, as well as some prototypes of what we have in store for upcoming releases.
Since you may not know the Xceed team members who will be attending the PDC, I decided to give you all a little bio for each of them.
Pascal Bourque, of Channel 9 fame, is the lead developer of Xceed DataGrid for WPF and has been developing using WPF since its CTP phase. Always on the quest for knowledge, his guidance and experience have been key factors in the datagrid’s success. He and I have been working together for the past 10 years, and during this time he has been my colleague, my teacher, and most importantly my friend. If you have the opportunity to speak with him at the PDC, even if it is just for a few minutes, jump on the occasion! You will not regret it!
Marc Laroche, also of Channel 9 fame, was a senior developer for Xceed DataGrid for WPF and has since moved on to become the lead developer for our upcoming Silverlight datagrid. Never one to back down from a challenge, Marc always makes himself available to his colleagues, providing insights and ingenious solutions to any problem. Although we have been working together for just over a couple of years, he is one of the reasons why I enjoy working at Xceed.
Odi Kosmatos is the VP of research and development at Xceed. Since co-founding the company back in 1994, Odi has maintained his passion for Xceed and its products, but also for its employees. Always excited about new technology and gadgets, he is our main source of information when it comes to new developments. Conversations with Odi are always interesting, to say the least!
Charles Duncan is head of sales and marketing and is without a doubt one of the kindest and most caring people I have ever met. Always looking for new and innovative ways to improve Xceed, he is the cornerstone without whom Xceed would not exceed.
And me. I started working for Xceed in 1999 doing technical support for what was at the time our only product: Xceed Zip Compression Library. After a couple of years, I moved on to become Xceed’s first “official” technical writer. During this time, I have learned more than I could have imagined and continue to do so thanks to the conducive learning environment that is provided to all employees. I consider Xceed to be my second home and can’t picture myself anywhere else.
We are very excited to be part of this event and hope to see you in L.A.!
