    Here we grow again. Telerik acquires NimblePros

    It doesn’t even feel like it’s been that long since I wrote a post on “Telerik in Numbers” (almost 10 months to date), and that blog content feels very out of date. While I plan to update you with some new, fresh stats in the future, today I wanted to update you with some exciting news that will impact the stats I gave you on the number of offices and people we have. I am really happy to announce the acquisition of NimblePros. Throughout the years we’ve had many touch points with Michelle and Steve Smith, the founders of NimblePros....

    “Done”. “Done Done”. When is a feature really done?

It's the only 5 days out of the 365 in the year when we are not in a turbulent whirlwind of activity.

    Silverlight: Silverlight 5 is out. What does this mean to me?

    Microsoft's long awaited release of Silverlight 5 happened on Friday. Silverlight 5.0 ships with a ton of new features, including new media and graphic improvements as well as extending the trust model to the browser (a big deal for some Line of Business applications). This release happened without any fanfare but that hardly diminishes its value. Some of the great things in the release are listed here. While Microsoft did not announce that there was going to be a Silverlight 6, they did announce they would extend support for Silverlight 5 for ten years until 10 Dec 2021, as long...
