It's really exciting to see the telerik radControls for WinForms get their first industry recognition just a few months after their official release! Several days ago we got notice that our UI components for desktop development have been selected as a finalist in the "Best Software Development Solution" category in the 2007 SIIA Codie Awards.

Citing the organizers, "The Codie Awards celebrate achievement and vision in software, education technology and digital content. Presented by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), these awards represent the only-peer reviewed honor in the industry. For 22 years, SIIA Codie Awards have been the leading honor for the software and information industry's finest products and services. Codie Awards judges work to identify the "best-of-the-best" from hundreds of nominees - over 1,000 in 2006."

While it's unlikely that radControls will turn out to be a winner, it's still very inspirational to get noticed at such an early stage of the product's evolution. To paraphrase the folks from Apache Turbine, "the best is yet to come" when it comes to our Windows Forms UI controls. There are going to be quite a few additions to the controls so stay tuned in 2007:)
