Prizes Offered in Community-Wide Submission Contest
WALTHAM, MA, September 29, 2009 - Telerik, a leading vendor of development tools and user interface components for .NET, announced today the launch of a new marketplace for add-ons for its Sitefinity ASP.NET content management system (CMS). The marketplace will allow the rapidly growing Sitefinity community to share and sell controls, modules, themes and templates for Sitefinity ASP.NET CMS. In addition, the marketplace will offer a number of free tools and resources contributed by Sitefinity MVPs and community members that are available for immediate download including ‘Site Map’ control, ‘Tab Links,’ ‘What’s New’ control and many others.
Telerik also announced a community wide call for submissions to the marketplace. Developers submitting an add-on by the end of October will be eligible to win prizes including a free Sitefinity license. Submissions can be made at: http://www.sitefinity.com/marketplace/submit-module.aspx
“We are really excited that Telerik is providing this opportunity for its partners and community in general,” said Steve Miller, CEO of Mallsoft, a web design and development firm located in San Diego, California. “We have a number of add-ons developed especially for Sitefinity CMS that we hope will generate some interest. We are also looking forward to being able to explore the work of other developers. With Sitefinity being such an open, robust platform and so easily extendable, we are sure there are some really amazing add-ons out there.”
“We think this will be a great opportunity for members of the Sitefinity community to not only showcase their work but also benefit from the work of others,” said Martin Kirov, Sitefinity Partner Manager. “Sitefinity CMS is well liked by developers for its flexibility and extensibility, so we are confident that the number of items available in the marketplace will grow rapidly.”
