Telerik wins Jolt Award for Best Application Library


It’s with great honor that I get to share with you that Telerik has been awarded the Dr.Dobb’s Jolt Product Excellence Award in the category of Application Libraries and Frameworks. This win recognizes the Telerik Premium Collection bundle, which as you know includes everything from the RadControls to OpenAccess ORM to JustCode, as the best collection of tools available for software development as determined by an experienced panel of expert industry judges.

This award is extra special because the Telerik Premium Collection was judged against all software libraries and frameworks- not just tools built for .NET. That means the Telerik tools were deemed the best tools for developers, period. Entries from a range of platforms, including .NET, Java, and who knows what else, were judged and Telerik came-out on top.

First, I want to again thank you, our active and loyal customers for continuing to give us the feedback that has helped us build definitive, industry-leading products! We work every day to make your lives easier and awards like this only serve to verify that we’re all moving in the right direction.

Second, I want to apologize to our non-.NET friends. Most of our tools target .NET very specifically, so we apologize that you will not be able to enjoy the best tools available for software development. Assuming you’re not ready to make the switch to .NET, hopefully you can enjoy some of our other tools like TeamPulse and WebUI Test Studio that are useful to .NET and non-.NET developers alike.

Enjoy working with best developer tools money can buy and don’t forget to vote for them in the Community Choice Awards this week!
