    December 29, 2011 Share
    It gets quiet around the office over the holidays. I like to use this time to reflect on the year behind us, both from the industry perspective, as well as from the Telerik perspective. It's the only 5 days out of the 365 in the year when we are not in a turbulent whirlwind of activity. From an industry perspective, 2011 was pretty dynamic and we saw some really powerful trends pick up steam: Cloud The proliferation of cloud computing. Every solution needs to have a cloud back-end.
