Telerik MVC demo app now available

Hopefully you know by now that Telerik's RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX fully support ASP.NET MVC. That's right. You can use the same RadControls that you know and love today in Microsoft's latest incantation of the ASP.NET framework. But since this is such a new feature, and since we know many of you are still trying to wrap your mind around MVC, we've built a full ASP.NET MVC demo application that uses many of the RadControls so you can see how this is all supposed to work. The demo is a simple- and stylish - forums application. It uses 9 of the RadControls, including RadGrid, RadEditor, RadChart, RadTreeView and RadUpload, to build a forum site that has basic thread/post navigation, formatted forum posting, user authentication (with support for custom avatars), and a site activity "Statistics" view. Everything you need to have a fully functional MVC forums app. The source is available for immediate download, so I encourage anyone interested in learning more about MVC or the RadControls in MVC to grab the bites and study the example. Hopefully this will help those of your adopting MVC find ways to use the RadControls in new and creative ways. We'll continue to expand our documentation and support for MVC as adoption continues, so let us know what you think! We want to know your thoughts on MVC and our current support for it. Is MVC starting to "woo" you away from WebForms? View the Telerik MVC Forums demo now

I tried out RubyOnRails a year ago and working with MVC is great! MVC did a great job! Everything is just where it should be and i love Telerik's efforts to fully support MVC!

@Serrynaimo- Glad you like what you're seeing with MVC and Telerik's support for MVC! Give the controls and the demo a try and let us know how you like our early support.
