For the past several months, we've been rebuilding & redesigning the Telerik.com web site. Our existing web site had served us very well, but it was beginning to show some age. We were anxious to utilize some of the newer techniques & technologies available to us and, in the end, hopefully offer a better experience to our customers.
Telerik.com is a big a web site and rebuilding it wasn't a trivial task. Not only does Telerik.com get a lot of traffic, but it also contains a TON of content (product information, demos, support articles, forum posts, etc.). To support this task we needed a platform and content management system (CMS) that was flexible enough to merge with our existing systems and support the traffic load.
[Wait a second, I feel a sales pitch coming...]
Of course we chose Telerik's own Sitefinity CMS for this task. The entire project was done in 10 minutes and we were so far under budget that we turned a profit. Next week we're all traveling to Hawaii to celebrate.
I'm just joking. In fact, rebuilding Telerik.com on the Sitefinity CMS taught us a lot. Many of the performance improvements found in the Sitefinity 3.5 release were a direct result of this project. In the coming months we'll see many more Sitefinity improvements that were also a result of the new Telerik.com. We have now become one of our own biggest customers.
For now, please take a look at the new web site. We sincerely hope you enjoy it! As always, your feedback is greatly desired & appreciated.
