TechEd 2008 is officially underway. The shiny Telerik booth is once again standing tall the expo floor, the demo videos are rolling, and the people are flocking to grab their swag. If you're in Orlando and at TechEd, definitely make sure you stop by our booth (#1101) and get your free .NET Ninja or Geekette t-shirt. For everyone else, stay tuned this week and I'll try to bring you regular updates from the floor (as promised). Hopefully you've already seen my coverage of this morning's Gatesnote- his last public speaking engagement as a full-time Microsoft employee. There wasn't much new shared in the keynote, but we did get official confirmation that Silverlight 2 beta 2 will be available by the end of the week. That's good news for you Silverlight fans out there.
Also, continuing on my promise to deliver exciting Telerik announcements this week, we've officially revealed that we're working on a gauges product for WPF. There are not many details to share on this project at the moment (sorry), but I can say this:
- The work on this product is already underway and the data visualization experience of the team building these gauges is incredible.
- You can count on Telerik to begin shipping gauge components towards the end of this year, starting on the WPF platform.
