In any organization with ambitions of growth, standardization is non-negotiable. Well implemented standards allow you to do everything in less time. That extra time is what you reinvest into growth activities.
Still, standardizing removes decisions from the individual and puts them in the hands of the organization, which can be harmful to employee creativity and self-drive. In situations where individual judgement creates inefficiencies and mistakes, standardization is a life-saver. In situations that require individual judgment, this is an impediment. Recognizing the difference is important, but hard.

Mobile applications have quickly become vital tools for businesses and can play a pivotal role in their success. Consumer-facing apps can bolster audience engagement and the customer experience, while internal apps can significantly improve productivity and operations. While there is no secret formula for building a successful app, nearly every developer will agree that choosing the appropriate development environment is a pivotal first step in the process. For many companies, Xamarin has become an attractive option. Because Xamarin uses a C# shared codebase, teams can use Xamarin to build cross-platform mobile apps with native performance, all while using the skills and expertise they’ve already developed.
This whitepaper will help you kick-start your Xamarin app development process by walking you through your initial steps. After reading this starting guide, you should have a better understanding of the essential tooling for Xamarin development and a clear path for building an elegant user interface for your cross-platform apps.

Hearing a lot of buzz on all that’s going on in the .NET space with ASP.NET 5 and MVC 6? Microsoft is releasing a revolutionary version of the .NET framework, which makes some ASP.NET developers uncertain stepping into 2015.
At Progress, we're excited about the upcoming changes and would like to explain why we believe this is one of the best times to be an ASP.NET developer.
Here are some of the burning questions we’ll address:
Telerik surveyed 2,200 developers and IT executives between July 15 and August 1, 2014 to determine the “App Development State of the Union.” The survey’s objective was to determine priorities and pain points surrounding application development—from desktop to mobile—as well as examine developer preferences, methodologies and approaches.
Three findings stand out clearly. First, while mobile is an obvious priority to enterprise decision makers, widespread adoption is slower than anticipated, while desktop and web remain focus areas. Second, developers are not widely collecting end-user feedback to optimize the development process. Third, despite being tasked with heavy workloads, the majority of surveyed developers are not leveraging currently available technologies, such as cross-platform and multi-platform solutions to maximize productivity.
Investing in third party ASP.NET toolsets is well worth it, but only if you find the best toolset for your project. But what characteristics should you be looking for, and how do you make a thorough—but fast—evaluation?
To help, we created a checklist of factors to consider on your quest for productivity. You can save even more time by using the handy spreadsheet provided at the end. It enables you to quickly rate different solutions on a range of predefined factors.
