Telerik at TechEd, Winning awards

IMG_2048 As you know, this is a busy week for Telerik because we’re in full-force at TechEd 2010. TechEd New Orleans is underway and the Telerik crew is busy doing booth demos, talking to Telerik fans, and helping developers learn how Telerik’s tools help them save time building great software. As you would expect at a conference made-up largely of the “IT Pro” audience, Telerik’s TeamPulse planning software and WebUI Test Studio testing software are very popular in the booth this week, and Telerik Reporting is a big hit with the BI attendees (especially with our support for Silverlight, WPF, WinForms, and ASP.NET).

We’re also very honored to receive some awards this week.

We kicked-off the week taking home the Code Project Members’s Choice Award for Best Silverlight UI components! The Telerik Silverlight Team has been working very hard to create the best Silverlight UI components available and we’re pleased that our work is producing results the entire .NET community loves. We’ll continue to build on this success and once again establish Telerik as the industry leader for UI components on any Microsoft platform.

Meanwhile, we’ve also been nominated for three “Best of TechEd” awards this year! We’re nominated in these categories:

  • Best Database Development Tools (with OpenAccess ORM)
  • Best BI Tools (with Telerik Reporting)
  • Best Software Components (with Telerik Ultimate Collection)

It’s a great honor to be considered among the best of the best across such a wide spectrum of .NET, and we definitely appreciate all of the feedback and support that you- our avid fans and critics- provide to help make our products great.

Of course, beyond the booth and the awards, there are plenty of parties and meetings and parties this week in New Orleans. It’s a busy time, but an exciting time. And speaking of time, it’s time for me to get back to the expo floor…
