    The Telerik Eastern Canada User Group Tour is Coming...

    Hey everyone! Taking a quick break from the updates to the HR Recruiting application to share some information on the Telerik Eastern Canada User Group Tour that is coming up in September.  What is the TECUGT (wow, that is one pretty acronym), you might be asking?  Well, to put it simply... So not only do you have the opportunity to pick up your RadControls for Silverlight from any stop in TechDays Canada, but I'm also going to be making two trips to eastern Canada in September to present some fresh new Silverlight talks to a user group (hopefully) near you.  So if...

    Return of the Silverlight Recruiting Application

    It has been a while since I've had a nice, lengthy, code-a-riffic post on here so I wanted to start this off right.  By the title of this post I've already given up part of the surprise- I'm revisiting the Silverlight Recruiting Application and bringing it up to date.  For those of you that don't remember (or haven't seen this series), the concept behind this application was around a real world internal use here at Telerik.  More specifically, we keep growing and therefore our HR demands have grown, requiring something more robust than a very organized use of Excel and...
