Wait, what? Is it time again for yet another feature-packed Telerik DevCraft Release? Why, yes it is! The DevCraft Q3 2015 Release is here. The official bits drop on September 30, and we’ve got plenty of great stuff in store to show you.
Join Developer Advocates Michael Crump, Ed Charbeneau and Sam Basu on October 14, 2015 for the DevCraft Q3 2015 release webinar. We’ll take a detailed look at what is included in this release, as well as how it fits into your next application–whether for web, desktop or mobile! We are also offering two time slots to choose from–we love developers, wherever you are in this big wide world:
Starting with the web, we have a brand new SpreadSheet control for Kendo UI framework, Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC and Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX that brings data management in your business applications to the next level with core Excel-like functionality. We’ve included an enhanced Visual Studio Experience (using templates/in existing projects) with Scaffolding capabilities for Grid, Chart and Scheduler widgets in Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC, making it a breeze to create data-bound applications with full CRUD functionality. We’ll also deliver a preview version of AngularJS 2.0 integration for Kendo UI framework, as well as beta support for Web Components. Also included are enhancements to our Chart and Gantt controls, as well as an extended Nova Theme delivered in Q2 for Web and DataViz.
For the desktop, we’ve added a brand new TimeSpanPicker component for WPF, and enhanced our DataLayoutControl for WinForms. Also, the DesktopAlert control for WPF is now official!
You didn’t think we’d stop there, did you? We have lots of mobile improvements, and we are excited to announce the community preview version of the vastly anticipated Telerik UI for Universal Windows Platform suite. This will enable developers to build Windows applications with the new UWP runtime that reaches any device running Windows 10! The DataForm control for UI for iOS/Android is now official and includes support for Xamarin.Forms. The DataForm component enables you to create your UI with classes instead of markup. Here is a blog post on it. We’ve also added two new controls for Telerik UI for iOS: Gauge and AutoCompleteBox.
With Q2, we officially released the Report Server, and in Q3 we are adding the ability to schedule automated report tasks and leverage easy user authentication with Active Directory Integration. Consider all your report generation, management and deployment issues solved!
As you can tell, this is a packed release, and we are excited to unpack the DevCraft bits for you!
We have several great prizes lined up to be given away in both webinars. All you have to do is stay until the very end for your chance to win.
Here are the prizes up for grabs:

With enhancements across the board, from web to desktop to mobile to report server, you can see that our teams have been busy at work. We’d love for you to join us and get a chance to win two of the hottest gadgets around. How cool would it be to use your Surface 3 and the new Telerik UI for Windows Universal Platform controls to build a Windows app that runs everywhere, including your new Xbox One!
