Hello from Microsoft Connect(); 2015!
As I stroll the hallways of the Connect(); conference in NYC, I am happy to launch the public beta of Telerik UI for the Universal Windows Platform. This platform is the foundation for building all future Windows-based applications. And you can now get our tools for free!
Simply download the public beta from our site, and if you are one of the first one thousand people who download it you will receive a complimentary copy when the product goes live in early 2016. The suite comes with 19 UI controls for data visualization and manipulation. There’s also plentiful documentation and live demos, as well as the support you’ve become accustomed to over the past twelve years that we’ve been providing UI components for all Microsoft development platforms.
Now, on to Connect(); 2015. It’s a big day today if you are a .NET developer. Sure enough, various previews of Visual Studio 2015 have been around for quite a few months. But today it goes RTM. If you live and breathe .NET code, today is a big day, and one that will change how you work every day for quite some time to come. Of course, that’s not everything. In addition to Visual Studio 2015, we all are anticipating more great news around ASP.NET 5, MVC 6 and probably a few more secrets Scott Guthrie & Co. will announce.
We at Telerik are proud to be a part of Connect();. Today we are here with a customer, presenting a joint case study with Microsoft and Boston Heart Diagnostics. It’s a truly inspirational story about how Microsoft, Telerik and Progress products, in conjunction with Boston Heart Diagnostics’ subject matter expertise and vision, are together making a world of change in the “e-health” business. By connecting patients, doctors and dietitians through web and mobile interfaces, Boston Heart Diagnostics is able to provide superior care for their patients.
In 2015, the Telerik tools business grew at a fantastic rate. With more than 130,000 paying customers and a developer community of 1.7 million, Telerik has continued to sign new deals, expand current relationships and break into new markets. Customer wins during the last year include Microchip, Boston Heart Diagnostic and others. With announcements at Connect(); we expect many others to come.
Happy coding, and don’t forget to download the public beta of Telerik UI for Universal Windows Platform. I hope you are one of the first one thousand people to receive it for free when it launches. Only winners will be notified at the email address you used when you registered your UI for UWP beta. Rather than clutter this blog post with all the legal terms, you can see them all here.
