Thank you to everyone who attended the What’s New And Awesome in Q1 2013 RadControls webinar.  We know that GoToWebinar had significant problems and many of you were not able to get through to the service, but I’m happy to say that we have a recording of the webinar now available on

Remember that RadControls for Windows 8 can be purchased at a significant discount this month, and is also part of a bundle of tools, Win8The DevCraft bundle, that you can use to become more productive in your daily work.  Take a moment to check out DevCraft, it is less expensive than buying any two of our other products, and comes with over 11 products for immediate productivity.
