Building a great product means listening to your customers. The feedback you get can have a tremendous impact on your success. That’s why those of us on the Kendo UI team are committed to connecting with developers like you. We love getting your feedback. We spend a great deal of time listening to your feature requests and suggestions. To date, we’ve had a total of 183 ideas posted on our user voice site. On our forums, we’ve had 2117 threads created, with a total of 6965 posts. These numbers speak volumes, especially when you consider we shipped the first release of Kendo UI less than six months ago.
Of course, building a great product also means connecting with your customers on a face-to-face level. This usually involves a lot of travel and time away from family, but it’s value cannot be understated. Nothing gets us more excited than hearing a story about the Next Big Thing being built on Kendo UI. Or, talking to a developer who wants us to implement a feature for the next release. We love it.
