    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.

But it’s tempting to just hack some nested callbacks in place and end up with a giant monolithic sideways Christmas tree of doom doing that.

    Normally, when you click a label for a Kendo UI Treeview item, the item toggles between selected and not. But in some scenarios, you just don’t need the item to be selected. Sometimes it makes more sense for the checkboxes to act as the item being selected or not. I’ve had a number of people ask me how to do this recently, so I wanted to share a quick and easy tip on how to make it work.
