Confused by license Kendo UI professional

The license for Kendo UI professional is per developer, components are installed using npm.

Scenario 1:

If I have a group of developers 1 Front-end, 1 Fullstack, 1 backend do I need 3 licenses? The backend developer will not be doing development with the UI components but will need to run the code in development so would need to install the packages locally.

What about CI, the CI server is going to install the components every time a new checkin occurs, would the CI server need an additional license?

---

Scenario 2:

If I work as a consultant and build an application using the UI components, I obviously need 1 license. But now I hand that project off to the client and they have x number of developers who will maintain that project, making small tweaks here and there overtime. My client does not want to purchase licenses for each of their developers as they are rarely even touching the code.

It seems like an application license would make more sense? But maybe my assumptions above are not correct, any guidance would be appreciated.

Thanks, - Jesse

Hi Jesse,

With regard to scenario 1, there is no need for licenses for the backend developer and the CI server.

With regard to scenario 2, there will be a need for X licenses for X developers. However, if the usage will be scarce, I encourage you to contact our Sales team (sales@telerik.com or telerik-sales@progress.com) and try to negotiate a deal that corresponds to your use case.

Thanks!

I am still waiting on design/product to decide which UI framework they want to use. I will be in touch if they decide to go with Kendo.

I wonder if this is still active thread in 2019, I believe we would still need x licenses for x developers for scenario 2?

Hi Deepak,

Yes indeed, our licensing model is based on developer seats.

However, it is worth noting that we provide volume discounts. My advice is to get in touch with our Sales team and explore possible options with them. I can also arrange someone to contact you directly, if you prefer.
