Exceed Expectations with Sitefinity 5.1 and Falafel Software
| Monday, July 16, 2012
Telerik is releasing Sitefinity 5.1, the most comprehensive update to Sitefinity since 4.0. This begs the question, are you ready to take advantage of all Sitefinity 5.1 has to offer?
Telerik packed this new release full of great new features and enhancements. Developers will be delighted with the new technical enhancements that allow Sitefinity to be easily extended with ASP.NET MVC and Razor. Couple that with Telerik’s Kendo UI integration and you have the most flexible and speedy version of Sitefinity ever built.
There is a lot for administrators to get excited about in Sitefinity 5.1 too. New features allow for single click installation of add-ons like widgets and modules. New email campaign management features allow for drag and drop email template design and include integrated A/B testing and analytics. Everything added in this release will allow you work faster and be more productive.
Falafel Software has been delivering training, custom widgets, full blown websites, installations and upgrades since the first version of Sitefinity, but I don’t recall ever being this excited about a new Sitefinity release. As a Sitefinity Platinum Partner, we’ve been preparing for weeks and are releasing our first Sitefinity 5.1 widget TODAY! Our new ListBrowser widget gives you the power to define organized lists of data (like in an FAQ) and automatically view it in a Kendo UI PanelBar or TabStrip. The ListBrowser gets its speed and flexibility from the MVC + Razor programming model and comes packaged with source code so you can understand how to leverage this model in your own custom widgets.
We are also offering the very FIRST Sitefinity 5.1 training class tomorrow (7/17). This is the only place to get in-depth, hands on experience with Sitefinity 5.1. Sign up for the Sitefinity 5.1 training or learn more about how Falafel Software can help you get the most out of Sitefinity 5.1 on our Sitefinity 5.1 services page.
...and stay tuned for a sneak peek of our top secret Sitefinity 5.1 widget. Coming VERY soon.
