Progress Makes Building Engaging and Inclusive Apps a Reality with Latest Developer Tools Release
Progress arms developers with advanced customization and accessibility functionality across all Telerik and Kendo UI libraries to help them easily create beautiful user interfaces that are built to serve the needs of all users. The recently launched Progress® ThemeBuilder™ Pro tool for easily implementing design in UI components, expands its rich feature set with new capabilities such as custom fonts, font icons and metric variables, allowing developers to easily style their UI components and implement brand guidelines and design systems with no CSS.
“Building apps for today’s diverse and demanding users isn’t easy—it requires an understanding of users’ context, preferences, and needs, and the right tools to make it happen,” said Loren Jarrett, General Manager, Digital Experience business, Progress. “With our latest release, we are giving developers even more technical power to build people-centric user experiences that will meet today and tomorrow’s needs.”
