    The Importance of Wireframes in Application Design

    Recently, I joined efforts with two of my good friends and fellow Telerik Evangelists Michael Crump and Jesse Liberty to jointly build an application that would run on Windows 8 and Windows Phone. Michael will do the Windows Phone development, Jesse Windows 8 with C# and XAML, and I will tackle the WinJS version.

    MVC design template

    We have just uploaded a contribution to Microsoft’s MVC design contest – a web-design template free for all to use with the MVC framework. Our entry is a clean, simple, blue-themed web-design generic enough to fit a broad range of scenarios. Please feel free to download and jumpstart your next project. We thought the contest was a great way to further support our clients in their switch to the MVC. Our RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX already boasts full support for the MVC (see live demo, join our forums), so we thought providing an out-of-the-box design solution is a logical next step.
