Kendo UI offers a unified framework that has all the necessary building components of HTML5 and JavaScript that solve the mentioned problems.”

Kendo UI helps developers to embrace the future risks faster and simplifies the adoption of the quickly evolving platform. This framework also serves as an Telerik`s opportunity to make a move beyond its .NET roots and use our knowledge to provide tools for the wide world of JavaScript and HTML5 developers.”
