I was browsing the internet looking for some UI Components to do tree-controls for several software projects that we are planning to work on immediately. I have been looking at components by: ComponentArt, Nitobi, Telerik and DHTMLX.
Based on a very rudimentary evaluation it appears as if the Telerik suite of components will best suite our needs-- specifically because of it's ajax support/integration.
We are a very small startup company with a couple developers in Pakistan. They have no experience with these controls and I'm trying to determine if it makes sense to have them scale the learning curve, or whether to try and find some free-lance developers that already have experience with the RAD controls. Finding someone with experience would also enable me to leverage more of the components and in a shorter period of time. Is there a developer forum, or place where I could find free-lance developers interested in doing some custom web work with these controls?
