Giveaway: Essential Studio for Windows Phone from Syncfusion




UPDATE:  Sorry, this giveaway is over.  Congratulations to Nirmit Kavaiya at @nirmitk26!  Come back soon to participate in yet another great giveaway!

As you work on Windows Phone applications you will shortly find that there a number of controls missing from the Windows Phone SDK.  For example, maybe you need a charting or a calendar control.  What about a PDF control?  Color selector control for your user to customize areas of your application?  Without these controls, your application will never fly in the Windows Store.

What do you do?  Do you just throw caution to the wind and try to develop them by yourself?  Do you decide to quite all together because you know you don’t have the time or talent to create a full blown calendar control?

How about a third party library?  Open source?  Free?  Does it include support?  Can you trust it?  Hmmm, not sounding too great huh?  Well, what if I told you there is someone out there who specializes in providing these type of controls for you.  They have chosen to be the experts and support it themselves?  Yep, there is a catch.  The cost of these controls along with support can add up quickly.  Sometimes hundreds and even thousands of dollars.  Yikes, not what you wanted to hear huh?

Well, I have a solution for you. How about a good old fashion Giveaway? You know, were you get it for FREE!!  Okay, so, I am not able to pull the wool over your eyes.  Yes, nothing is for free.  But, this giveaway is pretty close to FREE.

Syncfusion was generous ennough to give me a free Essential Studio for Windows Phone license to giveaway.  That is a $99 value.  Plus, you get 1 year of support!  I mean, look at what you get!!
