Yesterday we had blast giving a keynote for the Icenium 1.8 release. With features like the new Icenium Extension for Visual Studio, using Cordova custom plugins, and numerous updates & enhancements to Mist and Graphite - this was an exciting release and we can't brag enough on the amazing work our engineering team has pulled off!
During the keynote, Burke Holland and I put together a sample app called "Chuck Facts" - since the world can never know too much about Chuck Norris. You can find the repositories for the sample app here:
Not only was this sample app a lot of fun to put together, but it gives you a peek into what it's like to work with mobile apps, Azure services, Kendo UI Mobile and custom plugins - all from inside Visual Studio!
Todd Anglin showed off Eqatec Application Analytics during the keynote as well, so be sure to go to http://www.telerik.com/analytics/ to check out the compelling features of cross-platform analytics and watch the keynote (at the bottom of this post) to see how Todd integrates Eqatec into a sample hybrid mobile app to get real time analytics. He even goes into how you can track feature-specific usage in an app - giving you amazing visibility into how your app is being used in the real world. How cool is that?!
Really - who doesn't love winning something?! Especially when it's a sleek mobile device, or an Icenium subscription! Here's what was up for grabs:
High fives to all of our winners. We tried to have Chuck Norris personally deliver your prizes, but the email that you'll receive shortly will have to suffice, sorry.
If you missed the keynote, no worries! You can watch it right here:
After catching up on the keynote, go grab the brand new Icenium Extension for Visual Studio, and take Icenium for a test drive as well!
