    Thanks for Visiting Telerik at Basta Germany

    September 29, 2011 Share
    As every year Telerik sponsored the biggest .NET developer conference in Germany, BASTA. It was good to see that the number of attendees has grown again keeping us pretty busy on our booth. Considering that we got 18 products at the moment it is quite a challenge to staff the booth with people. Anyway we managed it with 3 guys plus extra support from Richard Campbell. A little surprise was that quite a lot of people were interested in our WinForms controls. So it’s not always the latest technology people are looking for, some like it mature ;-) This just further confirms the...

    Silverlight is dead. F****** dead

    September 22, 2011 Share
    Or maybe it isn’t that dead? OK…you expected me to say that, and you’re thinking, “this guy is just trying to sell me Silverlight tools and save his business.” I will not argue…you’re almost right. There’s one small correction to be made - we are not trying to save our business. :) Rather, we are hard at work on all fronts, be it HTML5 or Win8, so it doesn’t make a difference for us what technology you’ll ultimately choose as we have all bases covered. As I’ve said many times, use whatever makes most sense for your business. That said, I...

    When Should You Use Metro, Version 2

    September 21, 2011 Share
    A blog by Todd Anglin, Chief Evangelist at Telerik. (Original post here) During my busy week at the Microsoft BUILD conference, I cranked-out a quick and rough decision tree designed to help you decide which Microsoft platform you should use for app development:Silverlight/WPF, HTML5, or the new Metro/WinRT. The chart proved to be very popular, so I thought I'd revisit the decision tree and with the benefit of more time to reflect, produce a new, more complete version. Thus, I present version 2 of the "How to Pick Your Platform" chart. What's Different? In the original chart, the first question I made you answer was, "Do you need to support...

    There is a need for only five Metro style apps in the world.

    September 21, 2011 Share
    A blog by Doug Seven, Executive Vice President at Telerik. (Original post here) Over the past week I have spent some time playing with Windows 8 and the Samsung Windows 8 Developer Preview Device (SW8DPD). If you’ve spent any time lurking around the Start page or trying out the Metro apps you’ve likely come to the same conclusion I have. There are only five (5) Metro style application types. All of the Metro style app samples in the Windows 8 Developer Preview fit pretty nicely into one of these five categories, which leads me to assert that these are the five intended...

    Day 3: Can the Tablet come out and play?

    September 21, 2011 Share
    Today is day 3 of running the Windows 8 Build tablet. Apparently I am the only person in Hong Kong with the Build Win8 tablet and everyone I  know in Hong Kong wants to play with it. Some Telerik customers read my blog post from yesterday and asked me if they can play with the tablet too. I set up a meeting at a local pub in Hong Kong to allow some Telerik customers to play with the tablet. So today, the tablet went into the wild. Stop 1: Starbucks I was a little early to meet our customers, so I hung out at Starbucks. Just about all of...
