    Startup Weekend in Hong Kong

    November 14, 2012 Share
    This past weekend was the 3rd Startup Weekend in Hong Kong and I was lucky enough to return again as a judge. This year it was huge with 14 teams competing!   As usual, I was very impressed by the ideas, hard work, and execution. They stared on Friday night with lots of pitches and team formation. The group worked all day Saturday and Sunday at the CoCoon co-working space in Hong Kong (the same co-work space AcceleratorHK is using). A few AcceleratorHK cohort members as well as program director Paul Orlando were helping out as mentors. On Sunday night we all gathered to a different venue where we heard all of...

    AcceleratorHK Week 1

    November 13, 2012 Share
    Last week was the first week of the AcceleratorHK program. We have six teams that make up this cohort coming from: Hong Kong, Silicon Valley, Mexico, and Malaysia. The teams are just starting out but are in the following domains: social, location based, and community. We started out with an introduction to Customer Development by program director Paul Orlando and then broke up the teams and gave them a Startup Weekend style assignment : go out and work on project for 48 hours with new teammates with a focus on Customer Development.

    November 08, 2012 Share
    Thirteen. The number of awards Telerik collected in the 2012 Visual Studio Magazine Readers Choice Awards. The Visual Studio community has always been of great importance to us and the resounding response to our work is nothing short of fantastic. It is rewarding and exhilarating to know that you believe in Telerik and its products. We would like to thank all of you who voted for us!

    Is HTML5 hype justified or not?

    November 06, 2012 Share
    Is HTML5 "hype" justified or not?   We had the same question. We read the available research online, and often found it conflicting. Some analysts are HTML5 bulls; some are bears. Clearly, the Kendo UI team has its own (bullish) opinions on HTML5, but like any good student of the industry, we want to make sure those opinions are in-touch with the heartbeat of the developer community.   Not satisfied with the available data, we gathered our own via a new survey that collected responses from more than 4,000 developers!
