Hello Telerik

I was not tracking the changes at Telerik Platform and just realized yesterday you are closing the Telerik Platform and moving to Kinvey. I'd rather expected you would go to an even more unified (online) platform, integrate more, so less pain (installing NativeScript/Cordova, emulators, Node.js, etc. local with all its dependencies is such a ...). I would have expected you would go into a direction where developers could use a (online) platform with no local requirements necessary.

Now I realize you're moving opposite way and let the developers have all these problems and hassles while you only keep the Backend Services. I've already spent about 3 hours to create a local dev platform for Nativescript with all its dependencies. Even tough you offer great installation documentation it crashed in many ways. I'm a developer not a installation guru or a Unix crack. That way I don't see any advantages using Kinvey versus any other platform (AWS, Azure, etc.)

Before I make my decision which technology I want to use for my planned mobile App: Are your still offered NativeScript and Cordova plugins also usable in a Kinvey environment or do they all fall away together with the Telerik Platform?

Regards
