Words from the CTO
| ||BUILDing the Future|
Bernardo Castilho, Chief Technology Officer
Last month I traveled back to an area I've enjoyed for many years, San Francisco. This time it wasn't for the weather or the food, but for Microsoft's BUILD conference. While our company was an exhibitor, I had the opportunity to attend the keynotes, sessions, and hands-on labs (and to score a super-cool Surface Pro).
|I was happy to learn that Microsoft will be adding support for Bootstrap, a great framework for creating responsive design web interfaces.|
Microsoft's Scott Hanselman described the new ASP.NET project templates in Visual Studio 2013; they now include Bootstrap in addition to jQuery.
I was also excited by the many enhancements in Windows 8.1 and the great extensions to the WinRT platform, which is quickly reaching maturity. Enhanced support for Bing and Live SDKs, the new WebView and PdfViewer controls are just a few examples. Finally, there are great new features in Azure, and more integration between Windows Store apps and the cloud.
We contributed to the buzz with the release of WorkSpace, a new Windows Store app that allows you to open and edit files that use many popular formats (XLSX, HTML, RTF, PDF, and plain text). We built WorkSpace using the controls in our Studio (Spread, RichTextBox, and PdfViewer). Best of all, it's free and you can download it right now!
With the release of Windows 8.1 and all of the other enhancements, ComponentOne will continue harnessing the best of the best and passing it along to you in our controls. If you didn't have a chance to attend BUILD or missed a session, I recommend watching them on demand.

|The Making of WorkSpace Part 1: The ViewModel|
Greg Lutz, Product Manager
A few weeks ago we released the ComponentOne WorkSpace app and it's been quite a success with over 3,000 downloads and garnering some great user feedback. It's a first generation spreadsheet and rich text editor all-in-one. Oh, and it also opens PDF files too just for fun.
In this blog post series I will talk about making the initial version of this app and focus on four key areas that may help you build your own Windows Store apps. Read the full article.

|Extending HTML with AngularJS Directives|
| ||Our CTO, Bernardo Castilho, has recently taken a big interest in AngularJS. In fact, he has gone and written his own directives. He has even gone as far as to write a comprehensive whitepaper on custom AngularJS directives. Bernardo does an excellent job of covering directives and provides very practical usage scenarios.
