DevExpress Technologies for Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Help You Build Feature-rich Applications, Reduce the Amount of Code You Write, Increase Your Productivity, and Create Stunning Applications for Windows and the Web in a Shorter Time

GLENDALE, CA--(Marketwire - April 16, 2010) -  DevExpress is proud to announce the availability of Microsoft Visual Studio 2010-compatible controls and tools, including our award-winning integrated development environment (IDE) productivity suite. Fully optimized for the Visual Studio 2010, Developer Express technologies help to enhance the developer experience by accelerating developer and team productivity via an integrated suite of developer-centric technologies.

Today, software users are demanding more from software engineers. The pressure to deliver more features with higher quality in less time has never been greater. Furthermore, as the complexity of software systems increase, so do the challenges confronting developers. These challenges include a greater number of tedious tasks that consume precious time and can conspire to erode both creativity and productivity. The DevExpress product line for Visual Studio 2010 allows developers and managers to meet these increased demands for quality and functionality by boosting productivity while eliminating tedium.

"All of our Microsoft .NET Framework 4 based presentation components, reporting tools, application frameworks and IDE productivity tools have been engineered to take advantage of every capability built into the .NET Framework," said Julian M. Bucknall, Chief Technology Officer at Developer Express. "With our integrated libraries, developers can code at the speed of thought and deliver solutions that target WinForms, ASP.NET, Silverlight and Windows Presentation Foundation while meeting and exceeding end-user expectations."

"We are pleased that Visual Studio Industry Partner, Developer Express is simultaneously shipping its Visual Studio 2010 compatible controls and tools alongside the release of Visual Studio 2010," said Jason Zander, general manager of the Visual Studio Developer Division at Microsoft Corp.
