Infragistics Team visited South Korea

Daizen Ikehara / Friday, July 6, 2018

As my previous entry, Infragistics Team visited South Korea last month partnering with BluePort.
It was the first time for us to visit the country and we had great conversations with developers in Korea.

We hosted Infragistics Dev Day between June 21 and 22 at the BluePort office. We split a day into 2 parts, Angular focused event and WPF focused event. We also had a repeated event in following day.

AM on June 21, 2018 - Angular focused event

We started with Infragistics overview by Jason Beres, Senior VP of Developer Tools:

Jason Beres

He talked about overview of Infragistics products and benefits mainly focusing on web controls. He showed grids and various types of charts and demonstrated performance of Ignite UI for Angular and participants were impressed with the speed and real time response. All attendees are developing or planning to develop with JavaScript/HTML5 and/or Angular.

Satoru Yamaguchi, Solution Consultant for Japan and APAC region hosted Ignite UI for Angular Hands On next.

He went through an overview of Ignite UI for Angular, then led a Hands On. Attendees learned how to build a material design based application using Infragistics Ignite UI for Angular components such as grid and chart. Most of the attendees were new to Angular, but they were able to complete the contents.

PM on June 21, AM on June 22, 2018 - WPF focused event

We knew WPF is very popular in South Korea and it's proven that the number of registrants exceeded limit very fast, so we decided to have a second day for the WPF event.

Again, Jason started with Infragistics overview, but focusing on WPF product we have been providing more than 10 years such as grid, charts, productivity tools we're offering.

Satoru hosted another Hands On for Ultimate UI for WPF, too. Like Angular focused event, attendees learned how to build a WPF application using Infragistics grid, chart, pivot, Excel engine, and some other controls. Infragistics WPF configurators were introduced for quicker and easier development. Many of them are Windows Forms users and a half of them have some experience with WPF. All of them were able to complete the contents!

Round table with Korea MVPs!

On the last day, Infragistics Team visited Microsoft Korea Office and had a round table with Korea MVPs. We learned a lot of insights and got improvement ideas. We really appreciate everyone to support our visit and spent time with us!

We will be back to Korea soon and I hope I can visit there next time! Let's keep in touch!
