Gustavo Eydelsteyn An Inspiration for the Next Generation: Create the Amazing Web Today
Gustavo Eydelsteyn, Co-founder
So often we hear about the next generation of the Web. How to bring the desktop experience to your end-user’s browser or how to offer your users a Rich Internet experience. The key word though always seems to be next, next, next. With the 2008 v3 release of Studio Enterprise that next generation is now and ComponentOne is leading the way.
Included with this release are two new suites of controls that are taking developers into the next generation of Web development: ComponentOne Studio for ASP.NET and ComponentOne Studio for Silverlight. Both control suites take advantage of the latest Web technologies and trends enabling developers to create the cutting-edge Web applications their clients demand.
This release of ComponentOne Studio for ASP.NET includes the first set of our new ASP.NET controls that have been completely rewritten from the ground up to take advantage of the latest advances in ASP.NET. What this means is a set of controls compliant with the latest standards and with a footprint 3x smaller for your pages that translates to a performance gain averaging 10x faster.
This release also includes Studio for Silverlight: the most complete suite of Silverlight controls on the market with over 30 Silverlight 2 ready controls. Now you can create Rich Internet Applications with the features and functionality of traditional desktop applications that your end-users crave. The next generation of the Web is now and ComponentOne is putting you in the driver’s seat.
