R1 Webinar Banner

It’s the first day at work after the nice and relaxing holidays. You are fresh and pumped to start the new year right by getting stuff done. But by mid-day, you quickly realize you are back exactly where you left off. The same stringent delivery deadlines and projects with UIs so antiquated that they give you the chills.

Time to chin up—because your beloved Telerik® DevCraft suite is here with the 2016 R1 release. To deliver your software development projects on time and to delight your users, you need awesome tooling. Modern, cutting-edge developer tooling should elevate your development experience and enable you to deliver solutions faster than what you would have envisioned even a few months back. That’s exactly what the latest DevCraft release promises. No matter what your app platform—mobile, web or desktop—this R1 release has something for you.

Come join Telerik Developer Advocates John BristoweEd Charbeneau and myself, Sam Basu on February 3rd for the DevCraft R1 2016 release webinar. We’ll unpack platform-specific functionality to elevate your app development, and provide a developer’s perspective of what’s new in Telerik DevCraft. And we realize you all live in various parts of the world with varying time zones—so we’ll repeat the webinar twice @ 11 AM & 6 PM EST!

Here’s a quick glimpse of what we will cover in the webinar:

Web UI:

  • Official release of spreadsheet components for Kendo UI, UI for ASP.NET AJAX and UI for ASP.NET MVC.
