For Blazor development, Telerik developer tools include a library of native UI components for .net frameworks, enabling developers to build applications. Telerik’s also offers reporting and report management solutions, document processing libraries, automated testing, and mocking tools.
Held last April 7 to May 24, the event challenged developers to build apps for the common of good by using Progress’ Telerik and Kendo UI developer tools. Projects were accepted in nine categories and competed for a total of US$40,000 in cash and prizes.
“Our goal was to inspire developers to use their skills and our technology to turn their ideas for the betterment of the world into reality,” concludes Progress senior director, developer relations, Sara Faatz. “We are incredibly impressed with the apps we received and the level of innovation the developer community brought to bear.”
