    How interactive can things be?

    I recently came across a very interesting site with videos about Multi-Touch Interaction. The videos can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVI6xw9Zph8&eurl=I am a really big fan of interactive browser applications. Google Local and Microsoft Live Local are doing amazing things and, together with small companies like ours (http://www.telerik.com/ajax), are changing people perceptions about what can happen in the browser. Nonetheless, after watching this video, everything that's viewed as incredibly "interactive" on the web is a bit bleak compared to what you will see. Speaking about map interactivity, if you go to the middle of the video, you will see how a user interacts with a 3D geographical map. It's not happening on the...

    It's time for MCPD!

    As rumor has it, we have quite a few MCSDs on our team and we like to keep our skills sharp. With the release of .NET 2.0 we anticipated a change in the Microsoft certs. We were anxiously waiting for details about MCSD.NET (2.0?), but alas... Good ole MCSD became "deprecated" and you have to get ready for "The Microsoft Certified Professional Developer: Enterprise Applications Developer" (http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/mcpd/entapp/).Wow.. that definitely sounds as if you are getting a pretty good ROI compared to the plain MCSD. You become a "Professional Developer" and you add the magic "Enterprise" word to your credentials. The only problem is how to...

    ASP.NET Validation and so much more

    Perhaps some of you know that Telerik's tools provide great interoperability with the Professional Validation And More ("VAM") package by Peter Blum. Peter has a great set of products that offer much more than the validation controls that come with VS. As part of our collaboration, Peter was kind enough to give us a free license for internal use. It was sitting in our software repository and catching dust up until last week. We had to tackle an issue with validation groups in the back-end application of www.telerik.com - the postback triggered the wrong form on the page which wasn't supposed to...

    John Papa, interviewing tips, and the interviews at telerik

    John Papa's post with interviewing tips is an excellent read: I also share John's belief that the tech skills won't get you the job. At least at telerik they won't. The tech skills are just a prerequisite to get you to an interview. Typically, at the interviews in our company we don't ask a lot of technical questions. We do so only in case we are not 100% certain that what the person has written in his/her resume is true. Once we get past that, we spend most of the time trying to understand the person on the other side...
