The sun is shining. Temperatures are warming up. Flowers are blooming. Birds are chirping. Yep, it is springtime for most of the world. And even if you are a not-so-social developer, it is time to step out and enjoy the outdoors. Unless of course, you are in Australia—then you are already brave enough to fight off the wilderness and get plenty of outdoor time anyways.

Don't be stuck in your cubicle. Time to chin up—because your beloved Telerik DevCraft suite is here with the 2016 R2 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 R2 release has something for you.

Come join Telerik Developer Advocates John Bristowe, Ed Charbeneau and Sam Basu on May 11th for the DevCraft R2 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.
