A few weeks ago, fellow ASPInsider Steve Smith of NimblePros passed a client to me. It’s a part-time “tweaks and maintenance” gig for a small startup. I was quite happy to take this on. I’m mostly retired and no longer work fulltime but still want to keep my hand in ASP.NET and Visual Studio - and earn money for toys.
The way I heard it at the time, NimblePros was giving up the smaller client because a bigger customer wanted the Nimble Pros to work fulltime on its projects. To ensure their availability, the big client was buying the whole company.
So, I picked up the development work on the site and have been happily moving it towards the public release. My new client spoke about the need for additional search and filtering functionality on some grids. I said that if they weren’t wedded to a pure Microsoft solution, I’d recommend the impressive Telerik RadGrid that I’ve used in other projects.
To that end, a couple of days ago, I noticed a new item in my TODO list mentioning “Telluric (sp???) as a possible tool”.
Today, I learn that NimblePros is now part of Telerik. More specifically, part of the Telerik Enterprise Services group.
Good luck to Steve and Michelle Smith and their NimblePros crew! It’s a small world, but yours just got bigger!
Full Disclosure: Telerik gave me a free subscription to its control suite when I was still an ASP.NET MVP.
