    Real-World Recruiting Application using RadControls for Silverlight 3 [part 1]

    As in any business, with prosperity comes the need to bring in more people to handle the workload.  Telerik is no stranger to that, but here in the US office this has previously been a process heavy with Excel files, carefully tagging emails in Outlook, and relying on the Outlook calendar to ensure that interviews and the like are all in synch.  This worked when the US office was working out of someone's house a few years back, but with two offices, multiple brand new and open positions, and more on the way, we realized we'd need to figure out some...

    WPF / Silverlight: RadChart and MVVM

    While reviewing the daily portion of blog posts today one article at Delay’s blog here caught my attention – customizing the MS chart control via re-templating and the MVVM design pattern in order to achieve different colorization of the bar series items in a single series. We have discussed similar functionality some time ago but it seemed like a very non-mainstream scenario and based on our experience with the ASP.NET / WinForms chart it was rarely requested feature so we decided we can go without it for the time being.
