Vote for Telerik in 2008 Readers' Choice Awards

It's March. Do you know what that means? Clocks are "springing forward" around the world. College hoops is well underway. The major Microsoft conference season has started. And it's time for the annual asp.netPRO Readers Choice Awards. That's right, the voting has just opened for one of the most respected and well recognized awards programs in the .NET industry. Last year, Telerik brought home 8 Readers Choice Awards, one for every category in which it was nominated. For that, we continue to owe you- the "readers"- a huge thanks for sharing your enthusiasm for Telerik with the rest of the .NET community.

This year Telerik is nominated once again in a number of award categories. In fact, we've picked-up 3 new category nominations this year, so you've got your voting work cut out for you. And the nominations are (in voting order):

  • Best Charting & Graphics Tool: Telerik RadChart
  • Best Community Resource: Telerik's Community
  • Best Component Set: Telerik RadControls for ASP.NET
  • Best Content Management System: Sitefinity Web CMS
  • Best Grid: Telerik RadGrid
  • Best Navigational Control: Telerik RadMenu
  • Best Online Editor: Telerik RadEditor
  • Best Printing/Reporting Tool: Telerik Reporting
  • Best Scheduling/Calendar Tool: Telerik RadCalendar
  • Best Training: Telerik
  • Best Utility: Telerik RadSpell
And if you make it through all of those categories (making your Telerik votes along the way, of course), you'll be asked last to cast your vote for "Product of the Year." Telerik has about 10 options in this list, so to concentrate our "PotY" votes, let's all vote for the RadControls for ASP.NET as product of the year. Also, in the category of Best Scheduling/Calendar Tool, cast your vote for Telerik here if you like our RadScheduler or RadCalendar. I don't think we can have both products nominated in this category, so you'll have to make a RadScheduler vote a RadCalendar vote.

Also, while voting, show some support for our good friends at Falafel Software by voting for their Active!Focus product in the Best Project Management/Defect Tracking Tool category. This is their inaugural year in the awards and I know they'd love to get your support and do well.

With that, I encourage you to vote right now before you forget and then check back in early May to see the results. Thanks in advance for all of your support in these awards and for choosing Telerik as your .NET component vendor of choice!
