    Getting Started with PIE and Other DataViz Charts

    So you’ve got an amazing app or service, more users than you can count, and a ton of data that you want to share with the world. So what do you do with that data? Do you write your own charts and graphs in pure HTML and CSS? Do you slog through the process of drawing your own with a raw HTML Canvas or SVG library? Or do you sit back, relax and drop a few Kendo UI DataViz controls in place, tell them where to grab your data and take a vacation while the rest of the internet tries to get browser compatibility in to their hand-built charts? Not me. I'm going to pick DataViz over hand-rolled stuff, any day. And better yet - I'm going to help you get started with pie! (and other chart types, too)

    Know When To CDN

    There’s no doubt that JavaScript, CSS, images and other resources are becoming larger and larger and HUGELY McHUGENATOR sized these days (just take a look at any popular website you visit!). To make matters worse, though, we also have more people accessing these monstrous websites with 50megs of animated jiffs (pronounced “gif”), 10megs of JavaScript and more CSS than an MS-Word document’s “export to HTML”. Things are a bit of a mess, quite frankly. But there’s hope, even with the monstrously sized sites and ever-increasing number of mobile users. Content-Delivery Networks (CDNs), while not a silver bullet by any means, can help you to reduce the amount of time that it takes to deliver your website assets around the world.
