    Win a Samsung Omnia 7 Windows Phone for Doing Next to Nothing!

    November 03, 2011 Share
    Oh boy, should we call this one MetroUI for WinForms? It’s your call… If you have been following Telerik’s Windows Forms roadmap, you probably have noticed that we plan to introduce several cool and requested features, which however do not match the latest design patterns in the IT world. Did you really think that we were going to introduce just these features? Did you?

This stems from the traditional waterfall approach of software development where we were trying to completely describe the entire system up front perfectly.
