2017 R1 DevCraft Webinar Announcement Header

The DevCraft R1 Release is here, loaded with upgrades and new features. Catch all the news and score some prizes at our Release Webinar on Feb 2.

Let's start 2017 strong! 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 had left. The same stringent delivery deadlines and projects with UI so antiquated that they give you the chills.

Time to chin up—because your beloved Telerik DevCraft suite is here with the 2017 R1 release. To deliver your software development projects on time and to the delight of 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 be your app platform—mobile, web or desktop—this R1 release has something for you.

Come join Telerik Developer Advocates Burke Holland, John BristoweEd Charbeneau and myself, Sam Basu, on February 2nd for the DevCraft R1 2017 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. Have a specific product you care about the most? Feel free to join the webinar at the specific times—you’ll reap the most benefit with the complete bigger picture though.
