Syncfusion Launches Annual Succinctly Readers Award

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 20 febbraio 2018

Syncfusion, Inc., the developer solutions company of choice, is pleased to announce the winners of the 2017 Succinctly Readers Award, recognizing readers’ favorite titles published in 2017 as part of the Succinctly series—a library of free, technical publications.
With a total of 3 million downloads since its inception in 2012, the Succinctly series has had more than 900,000 downloads in 2017, including 33 titles in 2017 that were eligible for voting. In December, Syncfusion polled its developer community to vote on their favorite titles. Xamarin.Forms Succinctly by Alessandro Del Sole is the Gold Winner, receiving the most votes, followed by the Silver Winner, ASP.NET Core Succinctly by Simone Chiaretta and Ugo Lattanzi. The third-place Bronze Winner award went to Angular 2 Succinctly by Joseph D. Booth.When notified that he had won, Del Sole responded, “My initial reaction was of surprise, since the Succinctly series offers many interesting books. Summarizing a development technology is never easy, so the biggest challenge was selecting the right topics and the proper contents for each topic. I think I was able to provide a good overview of Xamarin.Forms.” According to Del Sole, Xamarin as a topic resounds with readers because it is a framework that allows Microsoft developers to build apps for iOS, macOS, and Android in C#, maximizing code reuse.“We are honored to work with such talented industry experts on the Succinctly Series. These authors have a unique ability to take complicated topics and create compelling summaries that allow readers to learn about the latest technologies,” said Daniel Jebaraj, vice president of Syncfusion. “The Succinctly Readers Award allows us to celebrate our writers and provide them with the recognition they deserve for attracting the most reader interest in a given year.”

New Book Empowers Readers to Take “Van Halen Approach” to Business Pitches & Presentations

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 28 aprile 2016

Nigel BarlowUnited Kingdom – As a seasoned keynote speaker and presenter, Nigel Barlow understands that his job in front of the podium isn’t just to speak. It’s to engage his audience, inspire them with his material and – quite frankly – to buck all trends so they don’t fall asleep (which, come on, is part and parcel of listening to a presentation!). Barlow’s style certainly goes against the grain, allowing him to deliver presentations that are packed with power and get each message across while looking polished, professional and like a rock star! In his new book, ‘Rock Your Presentation: A New Guide to Speaking with Passion’, Barlow shares his secrets so any reader can become the most talked about and remembered speaker at their next event. Whether one-on-one with an executive, or preaching to the thousands in a packed auditorium, Barlow’s simple philosophy will come as music to every listener’s ears. It’s time to crank up the volume!
Nearly all of us have to pitch or present our ideas, whether in a formal setting after lunch to a hundred jaded salespeople, in a lecture theatre or classroom, putting over our thoughts to a team of colleagues, or even selling a concept one-on-one to your boss or clients. In all these situations we can choose between delivering a message that sounds like back ground muzak, or one that wakes the listener up and makes them think ‘I LOVE this song!’ Most presentations and pitches could benefit from being ‘rocked up’ – becoming more dynamic and memorable, in ways that arouse the passion of the audience. By applying the ideas in Rock Your Presentation you can deliver better, livelier and more emotionally engaging talks which leave audiences with the kind of high you get from being in a crowd at a great concert.Barlow applies the rock’n’roll metaphor throughout the book, turning what, to many, is a stressful subject into an exciting and fun exercise you can’t wait to try out. So take the Van Halen approach to planning your presentation, deliver it like a hit song with a chorus and a bridge, play a few well-rehearsed power chords and set your audience ablaze.“The great thing about this book is that it covers the entire speaking and presentation spectrum – from strategies that apply to top-level CEOs right through to personal interactions outside of the workplace,” explains Barlow, whose clients include Apple, Microsoft and Vodafone. “I also dive right into the nitty-gritty secrets of public speaking that few will ever divulge – such as the top preparation habits of highly-effective speakers to my own “top ten” quick hacks that will improve any speech or presentation. The great thing about nailing speaking skills is that it seeps way beyond talking to an actual audience. In fact, did you know that effective presentation skills can help smooth over those incredibly-awkward personal conversations you have with your spouse? Go figure!”Continuing, “And the rock star analogy is perfect. Compare elevator music to a Bruce Springsteen concert; one has people plugging their ears and running away, while the other has lifelong fans who will stand out in the rain and mud to hear him play. It’s all about being like Springsteen and rocking the stage each and every time you set foot on it. Whatever your job and whatever your role, you’re going to have to put yourself under the spotlight at some point. The goal of this book is to bring the house down and make sure your audience never forget you.” official website: (photo: Nigel Barlow)
