Are you going to DevIntersection?  If you are, then you need to stop by and see me at the Infragistics booth.  Come check out our collection of mind blowing controls for every platform from web, to XAML, to iOS and Android.  No matter what your platform, we have controls to make your application sing that blissful song of awesomeness.  You’ll even get to tingle your touch senses by experiencing our touched enabled controls on a pair of Planar 27” Helium touch displays.  Now how often do you get to do that?

Not only am I just a fun guy to talk too, but I have tons of fee stuff to giveaway.  Everyone who comes to see me at the Infragistics booth will get an awesome new Infragistics t-shirt, created just for this event, a free drink ticket (more on that later), and a free download of our HTML5/jQuery Grid control.

But Wait There’s More!

The Grand Prize you may walk home with is a brand new Planar 27” Helium touch display.  This is not a joke!  The great people at Planar have graciously provided Infragistics with a Planar Helium PCT2785 display to give away to one lucky winner.  This is the same display you will have a chance to experience at the Infragistics booth.

Here are some specs at a glance:

  • 27″ widescreen interactive display with a 16:9 aspect ratio
  • Multi-touch with up to 20 touch points
  • Ultra-thin profile – less than 2″ deep
  • Unique, easy-to-use desk stand capable of 15° to 70° and flat tilt range
  • Smooth zero bezel all glass front surface

This display retails for $899.00, but there are some places that have it as low as $699.00.  Either way, FREE is one heck of a deal!  Now, if you aren’t the lucky winner of the Planar Helium, we will have a special coupon that you can get at the Infragistics booth which will give you a discount so low, that you will never find it cheaper anywhere else.  If you’re in the market to buy one, now would be the time.

How will you know if you win?  Well, you have to come to the Geek Nostalgia Room to find out.

Geek Nostalgia Room

On the evening of Wednesday, April 10th, from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm, Infragistics will open the doors to the Geek Nostalgia Room located in the Grand Ballroom 120.  Come hang out with us for an evening of drinks, great conversations, networking, and play with all your favorite old school systems such as a TRS-80, Atari 2600, Nintendo NES, and an Apple 2E.

We will not be providing any food so make sure you eat before you come.  With the DevIntersection giveaways ending at 6:00 pm, that gives you one hour to stuff your face.  We will be providing refreshments (soda and water) at no charge.  There will be a cash bar, so if you want alcohol you’ll need to bring some cash.  If you would rather not pay for your alcohol, you can earn free drink tickets by coming to the Infragistics booth.  There are a limited number of free drink tickets available, so it’s on a first come first serve basis.

Besides all the great conversation, drinks, computers and gaming systems, Carl Franklin will be breaking out his guitar for your listening pleasure.  Start making notes for your song requests!

For those of you trying to win one of our awesome prizes, the prize drawing will be at 8:30 pm in the Geek Nostalgia Room.  You must be present to win.  Don’t forget, you must register to win at the Infragistics booth.
