Telerik award winning communication recognized

Since there is little else to report on this Monday afternoon, let me take this opportunity to highlight some fun awards Telerik won in early January from the Society for Technical Communication. In this year's Technical Art Online Competition, Telerik won the Excellence Award in the Promotional Materials Design category for the Q2 2007 "hype" game and a couple of Merit Awards for the RadChart and Telerik Reporting development manuals. As a reminder, the documentation for Telerik's RadTreeview also won the Distinguished Award in the 2007 STC International Online Communication Category. These awards underscore the hard work that all teams at Telerik put in to making sure our communication- both technical and promotional- is among the best anywhere. Hopefully you've found that to be the case when you interact with Telerik documentation.

Even though we are good communicators, we are far from perfect. We are always on a quest to improve our documentation and make all of our published material as accessible as possible for developers of all skill levels. In fact, a key area of focus for the upcoming Q1 2008 release is improving documentation across all product lines, with an emphasis on RadControls for WinForms and the new "Prometheus" controls. With your help and feedback, we expect to build on our recognized communication success and solidly establish Telerik communication (documentation, demos, web casts, etc.) as the best in the UI component industry- if not in the broader software industry as a whole. If it makes your development life easier, we are going to do it better than anyone else.
