    Our Strategy Has NOT Shifted – Telerik, HTML5 and Silverlight

    Todd Anglin from our team posted a great blog entry yesterday. In it, he provides some interesting examination and commentary on Microsoft’s vision of the web, the birth of XAML technologies and the evolution of MS’s view on what the development experience for the web should be. Some of Todd’s main points are that  We should not be terribly surprised by Microsoft’s swings in direction.  The swings are driven by competitive pressure.  HTML5+JS+CSS3 is a viable application development stack.  You need good tooling for that (and he makes a gentle Kendo plug). The blog also received a number of interesting comments that made me think Todd was being...

    Starbucks in Japan is using Kanban for Quality

    When people think about Kanban, they usually get the impression that Kanban is either an inventory control mechanism or a system to manage an assembly line of workers. This is due to Kanban’s historical roots as part of Lean Manufacturing and the Toyota Production System. When I talk about Kanban, especially in reference to using Kanban with software development, I stress the importance of flow; how you pull items through the production system while limiting the work in progress. My favorite thing about Kanban is the Kanban card itself. Kanban gets its name from the card; Kanban translated from the Japanese means “signal card”. According to Lean definitions a Kanban card...

    Silverlight is Dead, Long Live XAML

      by Stephen Forte (This article is a re-post from the Stephen Forte's Blog)   A few weeks ago I was in the Telerik cafeteria at our world headquarters in Sofia, Bulgaria, and a colleague walked up to me and asked: "Is Silverlight dead?" I replied: "No, but it has seen better days." Since Silverlight's absence from last year's Professional Developers Conference (PDC) in Redmond, WA, the infamous "our strategy has shifted" comment made by Microsoft Server and Tools Division President Bob Muglia, Scott Guthrie's move out of DevDiv, and the recent reorg of the XAML team, the community has been in an uproar assuming that Silverlight...
