    Silverlight Recruiting Application #8 - Adding RadUpload (Part 1)

    One of the enhancements that the HR team has been asking for since I first launched this is the ability to attach some of the files that applicants send to the applicants once they are entered into the system.  This way, when looking through applicants anyone can easily view their resume, cover letter, or project (yes, sometimes there are projects!) as well as add a rating value to the project.  Seeing as we have a RadUpload control for Silverlight, I figured this would be a great opportunity to get that running in the application, especially since we have the new...

    The Telerik Eastern Canada User Group Tour is Coming...

    Hey everyone! Taking a quick break from the updates to the HR Recruiting application to share some information on the Telerik Eastern Canada User Group Tour that is coming up in September.  What is the TECUGT (wow, that is one pretty acronym), you might be asking?  Well, to put it simply... So not only do you have the opportunity to pick up your RadControls for Silverlight from any stop in TechDays Canada, but I'm also going to be making two trips to eastern Canada in September to present some fresh new Silverlight talks to a user group (hopefully) near you.  So if...

    Silverlight Recruiting Application #7 - Utilizing INotifyDataErrorInfo

    As you may recall from my previous blog post, we're revamping this application and bring it to the latest and greatest that is available in Silverlight today.  Coincidentally, Q2 2010 SP1 just came out today (check your accounts!) and I figured the best first place to start would be with something I removed previously- validation. Since I redid the model for this application, I completely scrapped all of the previous validation because I knew I could now take advantage of using INotifyDataErrorInfo, which gives us a slightly more graceful way to handle asynchronous validation in our application.  I would explain all...

    Return of the Silverlight Recruiting Application

    It has been a while since I've had a nice, lengthy, code-a-riffic post on here so I wanted to start this off right.  By the title of this post I've already given up part of the surprise- I'm revisiting the Silverlight Recruiting Application and bringing it up to date.  For those of you that don't remember (or haven't seen this series), the concept behind this application was around a real world internal use here at Telerik.  More specifically, we keep growing and therefore our HR demands have grown, requiring something more robust than a very organized use of Excel and...

    Building BI Dashboards with Telerik RadControls for Silverlight and WPF Webinar Follow-up

    Despite the initial audio and connectivity issues, the Building BI Dashboards with RadControls for Silverlight and WPF Webinar proceeded well and we got to dive into some of the issues people face in these scenarios as well as how RadControls for Silverlight and RadControls for WPF can help answer those challenges.  This is very close to the presentation that I gave this past weekend at the New England BI Code Camp, except the webinar is a little more focused on Telerik controls.  :) In this presentation, we look at a fictional requirements list for a customer would look like and why Silverlight or WPF can...
