Mansystems, a Mendix implementation and consulting partner, organized a Mendix meet-up through our new meetup.com group “Mendix Developers Netherlands.” The goal of these meetups is to bring Mendix developers together for a day of learning and sharing and best practices. We’re always amazed at the interesting ways our developer community is using Mendix.
Mansystems hosted the event at their office in Barneveld and around 30 Mendix developers attended. The crowd was a nice mix of experience levels; people just starting to explore the wits of Mendix, and employees of Mendix partners with several years of development experience.
The central theme of this meet-up was “Application Performance Optimization,” and in addition to getting to know each other and share their experiences, both Mansystems and Mendix prepared a track to get the conversation about application performance started. The group split up into two parts and followed tracks in parallel.
These two tracks, presented by Bart Tolen, Performance Specialist at Mansystems, and Bart Luijten Expert Services Consultant at Mendix, complemented each other nicely. One was an interactive presentation about modelling with performance in mind. The other one was an interesting talk about Application Performance Management, and how it fits into overall Application Lifecycle Management. If you are interested in reading more about Application Performance Management in Mendix applications, go check this post on the topic written by Mansystems.
Following the parallel tracks, attendees had the opportunity to mingle and focus on more specific topics in smaller groups, while enjoying a nice drink. Mansystems also arranged a nice buffet to finish the meetup in style. All in all a successful afternoon! Thanks Mansystems, we look forward to more Mendix developer meetups!
