Telerik no platform slouch around the world
Stein spoke at a Telerik app development event in Palo Alto Aug. 28. Other developers speaking included Krupa Rochs, sr. manager of St. Jude Medical Clinical Data Systems and Long Le, principal app/dev architect at the commercial real estate market analysis firm, CBRE; also, Wayne Carter, chief architect of Couchbase. Telerik has headquarters in Bulgaria as well as Waltham, Mass., and is not the usual Silicon Valley whitebread: cofounded by Svetozar Georgiev, co-CEO; Vassil Terziev, co-CEO; Boyko Iaramov, chief process officer; and Hristo Kosev, chief scientist. It's highly regarded in Eastern Europe,and the development platform is used around the world. Licensing, ave. $2,000 a seat.
