    The Telerik Platform: Modular Solutions to Mobile Problems

    Most developers understand the importance of building modular software; dividing a complex problem into pieces makes code easier to reuse and maintain. Because of the flexibility it provides, modularity was a key tenet in the design of the Telerik Platform; therefore, while you can use the Telerik Platform for a complete, end-to-end mobile solution, you can also pick and choose only the pieces of the Platform you need. To show this, we'll look at the modules that the Telerik Platform provides for five aspects of application development: the UI, development, the backend, analytics, and testing.

    Building a Full Stack AutoComplete Widget with Java and Kendo UI

    Anyone that has ever done a web search is familiar with autocomplete behavior. But actually developing these controls has a number of non-trivial technical challenges. Where do you get the options from? Do you specify those options on the client or load them server-side? Do you load all options at once or as the user types? Kendo UI's AutoComplete widget gives you the hooks to make all these implementations possible. In this article we'll build a few Java-backed AutoComplete widgets to explore the best way to structure the autocomplete controls you need to build. We'll start with a small hardcoded list, and scale all the way up a server filtered list with a million options.
