Miles Gibson

Need some help? I am the guy for the job! I have been developing critical applications across a diverse range of industries for more than 30 years. I have more than 20 years experience developing ASP.NET applications from start to finish. I am a seasoned Solutions Architect. I have expert data modeling and business analysis skills that can solve the toughest problems!

I have spent the past two and a half years deep diving into Microsoft Blazor, and I use my DxExperience subscription to leverage DevExpress’s quality Blazor tools to build line of business applications that simply work! Working with DevExpress and Blazor has made development fun, and I have been using DevExpress tools in one form or another since 2001. Whoa, that goes back a bit!

I am also a former IronSpeed Designer MVP and have oodles of experience with code generation tools.

Education wise I have a Masters in Information Systems from Athabasca University.

Matthias Moetje

Got stuck in your project? Unsure of the best strategy to proceed? I can help you. My first dev job came at the age of 16 (COBOL on a Unix mainframe), I graduated from university in Munich (TUM), I am a former Microsoft MVP for Windows API and C++, and I have assimilated a ridiculously wide range of technologies, platforms and tools. You might ask how I came to find DevExpress? It started more than a decade ago with the WinForms XtraGrid. I consider it the best data grid control on the planet, the others don’t come close. Over the years I have gained a lot of experience in moderate to extreme customizations of various DevExpress controls, making them behave and display data in ways that go far beyond the norm.

Joche Ojeda

My experience with the DevExpress Frameworks has grown as they have developed as products. I have been using XAF and XPO from the day they were released, which means I began with XPO way back in 2005. Before becoming an independent consultant, one of the last tasks I had as a lead developer in the company I was working for, was to evaluate frameworks to create a unified ERP. I was already using the DevExpress products and when XAF was released, I fell in love! I also continue to be a big XPO advocate and use it exclusively in all my projects, from ASP.Net MVC, ASP.Net Core to Xamarin and lately UNO platform.

Rich Ackerson

I graduated from the New Jersey Institute of Technology in 1988, earning a degree in Computer Engineering. For the majority of my professional career I have designed and developed software solutions for the health care industry, including such specialties as home health, HME, pharmaceuticals, and ophthalmology. Recent endeavors have included work flow management and document imaging solutions. After 25 years in the industry I thought it was time for a change; I now work full time for a leading provider of software solutions targeting the world's financial market.

Through the years I've gained experience in an assortment of programming languages including BASIC, PowerBuilder, C/C++, Delphi, C# and Oxygene. I consider myself a Delphi developer first and foremost; my experiences include Object Pascal coding, application framework design, custom component creation, multi-tier implementations and IDE extension development. It is the latter, specifically my work writing plug-ins for CodeRush, that first drew me to Developer Express' DX-Squad. Writing custom plug-ins to extend the Delphi IDE, helping fellow CodeRush users, and hosting a website to provide a centralized repository for community plug-ins became a passion of mine.

I am the primary developer behind CodeSiteEx, an open-source add-on to Raize Software's CodeSite debugging utility that provides simpler method tracing, limited code profiling, and extensive content reporting methods. Through an arrangement with Raize Software, the latest releases of CodeSite now incorporate some of CodeSiteEx's more sophisticated features but the product itself remains a valuable part of a Delphi developer's toolkit.

Nate Woolls

I've been developing desktop software applications for Windows since 2000. The first professional development environment I cut my teeth on was Delphi 5, and I’ve been using Delphi since.

Beginning in 2002, I started specializing in developing web services, generally backed by a SQL Server database, along with desktop and web based web service clients. I began developing for ASP.NET in 2003, and began working with the rest of the .NET framework in earnest in 2007. In 2010 I started developing for multiple platforms including Mac OS X, iOS, and Windows Phone 7.

Starting in 2011 I began offering my services as a consultant covering all aspects of the software development lifecycle, including database development, managed, native, and mobile software development, scalability, testability, integration, and more.

Brendon Muck

I've been a professional .NET developer (C# preferred) for about 10 years and I've been employed by Logistic Dynamics, Inc. in Buffalo, New York since 2005.
