In December we ran a sweepstake on Facebook; in January we had a grand prize draw. The winner of the sweepstake prize, an iPad 2, was Michael Sevast. He was much surprised to find that he had won but also had kind words to say about Aspose: “We have used the Apose.Total for .NET components, for several years now. These tools greatly simplify our ability to interact with and export to known Microsoft formats. The speed of these components saves us considerable time over custom in-house solutions.”
Supporting User Groups – How Can We Help?
Aspose value our developer community and do what we can to support over 150,000 users. One way we support the community is by supporting user groups. User groups bring developers from different industries and with different experience together to learn from each other. We already sponsor several groups and provide swag and free licenses for competitions. If you lead a user group, or know of one that could benefit from our support, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to hear from you.
