Editor's Note

Sasha Krsmanovic photoHello Telerik newsletter subscribers,

We are introducing a new section in the newsletter - Editor's Note. My name is Sasha Krsmanovic and I will be the resident editor. I'll be making sure to bring in various experts from Telerik to be guest editors in future newsletters.

For now, I would like to hear from you, our loyal readers. How do you like our newsletter layout, content and frequency? Write back with any feedback and I will do my best to incorporate it in future editions.

In this edition I would like to highlight two topics:

First, last week Telerik was honoured with the Red Herring Global 100 award at Laguna Niguel, California. The award recognizes the leading private start-ups for their innovation across their respective industries. The Red Herring's Global 100 list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs and in the past it recognized that companies such as Google, Yahoo, Skype, Netscape,, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work. We certainly enjoy being in the same company with them and would like to thank all of you, our loyal customers, for your trust over the past years. It is this tight relationship that has enabled and motivated us to continue to innovate and eventually win this award. Thanks!!

Second, for all of you social media aficionados, head over to our Facebook Fan page and join over 1,400 fans like you. You will be able to take part in our Monthly Telerik License Draw and connect to like-minded developers. Of course, if you are on Twitter, you can connect to us by following @Telerik

Enjoy the newsletter. I look forward to hearing back from you.

Public Issue Tracking System (PITS) Now Live

Public Issue Tracking System (PITS) Now LiveWe are happy to announce the public launch of our long awaited Public Issue Tracking System (PITS). The PITS system enables you to track the status of bug reports and feature requests, regardless of whether they are reported by you or other clients. The PITS system will send out notification emails and download links to all subscribers of a specific issue when the status of an issue has changed, meaning that you will not miss an important improvement in our products. PITS will also offer community voting and commenting, which will help Telerik teams prioritize and plan work in exact alignment with your needs.

Built entirely on Silverlight with Telerik's Silverlight controls, the PITS project is a great showcase of the power of RadControls for Silverlight. The project is linked directly to our TFS servers and shows up-to-date information on every public issue we track.

Check out the Public Issue Tracking System preview and let us know what you think by commenting on the blog announcement of PITS.

The Hidden Cost of Free Testing Frameworks

Is Automated UI TestStudioThe testing framework you use to automate your web UI tests through code probably does a good job. You have the freedom to tweak and extend your coded tests as much as you like, and for today's version of your web application, you have reliable UI tests. However, your applications evolve over time and most free testing frameworks don't help you with this process. As your application changes, it becomes increasingly difficult to keep older tests accurate, and test maintenance becomes a serious project cost as the size of your test bed grows. And the only thing worse than no automated UI test coverage is inaccurate test coverage that reports results you cannot trust.

Alternatively, there are some GUI-based UI automation tools. Unfortunately, most of the tools that exist today are too complex, too expensive, and are actually built for QAs- meaning very little support for developers that want maximum control over their tests.

Fortunately, there is a new way - a real alternative. Telerik WebUI Test Studio is a developer-oriented functional testing tool that integrates seamlessly with Visual Studio. It delivers dramatically better productivity than code-based frameworks with its point-and-click test recording surface, but at the same time gives developers complete freedom to tweak tests with code or convert them to unit tests. And the best part is, the price is suited for developers, not enterprises. WebUI Test Studio is a perfect addition to any professional developer tool belt.
