    I'm embarking on a big ASP.NET MVC web application development project in early January and although I was previously set on using the Telerik ASP.NET MVC Extensions, I am now wondering whether using Kendo would actually be better? Better in the sense of a nicer UI with a better future growth path. This particular application is the back-office component of a LOB application and does not require mobile support, although partial mobile support in future should probably not be ruled out.

    I've read the MVC FAQ here: http://www.kendoui.com/faq/mvc-faq.aspx and note that ASP.NET MVC wrappers will be provided in future, but I need to start soon.

    As the server side technology has to be ASP.NET MVC (WCF is also an option), I require some solid examples of using Kendo with ASP.NET MVC showing menus, grids, forms and comprehensive CRUD operations. I may be missing them, but are there any comprehensive Kendo + ASP.NET MVC examples available for study yet?

    I think having such examples would greatly promote adoption of Kendo by ASP.NET MVC developers. In fact a separate forum for Kendo + ASP.NET MVC might be a good idea.

    Thanks in advance

    All you need to know is how to work well with JSON and you should be good to go. MVC Helpers will definitely make coding a bit easier but there's no reason why you can't start using Kendo now. I am just finishing up an app built using the Telerik Extensions but had Kendo been announced when I started, I wouldn't have thought twice. You can use Telerik and Kendo side-by-side if you need to but if you're starting a new project, I'd brush up on my JSON, HTML5 (and polyfills) skills and just go with Kendo.

    Hi Xander,

    I've just posted a sample application at: Kendo UI ASP.NET Sample Applications and an article about it at: Kendo UI and ASP.NET MVC : Building a Task Manager.

    Let me know if you have any questions...

    Regards,

    Thanks John, that will indeed be very helpful and I will definitely study it. Vesselin, thanks for your comments too, they were helpful.

    I also noticed that MS has a new Single Page Application (SPA) template in the new ASP.NET MVC4 Beta that uses Knockout.js + Upshot.js + the new ASP.NET Web API. I suspect that Kendo will fit nicely into that template/architecture as well, so you guys might want to consider an example using that template as well.

    See: http://www.asp.net/single-page-application
