Q2 2009 Release Week Wrap-up, Resources, Winners

Did you guys enjoy that? The Q2 2009 Telerik Release Week was huge- not only because we shipped updates to all seven product lines, but because we filled the week with live webinars, new videos, and a lot of fun contests that we hoped you enjoyed. By now, you should be very familiar with what's new in the Telerik Q2 2009 release, and you should have a good idea of how to get started working with the latest Telerik bits. If you don't, don't worry. All of this week's webinars have been recorded and posted to Telerik TV for your on-going review and study: What's New in Telerik Q2 2009 Overview What's New in the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX and WinForms in Q2 2009 What's New in the RadControls for OpenAccess ORM in Q2 2009 What's New in the RadControls for Silverlight and WPF in Q2 2009 Literally hundreds of you joined us for the live events, and several of you have already won some great prizes. Congrats again to Gary Hanken, Tarik Souirji, Richard Clements, Travis Spencer, Lachezar Balabanski, and Eric McVicker! We hope you guys enjoy your free Telerik licenses and the new Q2 bits. That, of course, leaves us with one more winner to announce this week: the Webinar Week Grand Prize Winner. This person is taking home a prize pack valued at over $3000 that includes a Telerik Premium Collection developer license and a pass to the 2009 PNP Summit. But before I announce that winner, let me highlight a few more resources that will help you in your "post Release Week" learning. While the big release event is over, the learning is not. There are already almost 10 new videos on Telerik TV showing you how to work with the new controls in the various Telerik product suites. By next week there will be more than 20. Continue to check Telerik TV regularly for more videos and more resources as we try to make it easier than ever to get started with the Telerik Tools. And while the Q2 release was big, Q3 is going to be even bigger. I wish I could share more now, but that would spoil the Q2 fun. Let's just say there are some very exciting and big announcements to watch for in the coming months and you definitely don't want to miss what's coming in Q3. I think that wraps things up for this week. Thanks again to everyone that participated in all the activities. We hope you enjoyed them and enjoyed the release. As always, send us your feedback and let us know how we can improve. We're here for you, so your feedback is very important. And without further ado, the Grand Prize Winner is... [click to find out] Chrysa Clahane! Congrats and thanks again to everyone for "playing." We will announce the Twitter Contest winners on Monday. You've got 'til midnight Eastern Time tonight to get those #telerikq209 tweets in! You can still win and win big.
