By ivision July 20, 2015

ATLANTA, July 17, 2015—Jeremy Likness, head of ivision’s custom application development practice, has become one of the first five developers in the world certified in the Telerik® Kendo UI® HTML5 and JavaScript® UI framework.

Likness’ Telerik Kendo UI framework certification is the latest achievement in his 20-year career of enterprise application development. He is a six-year Microsoft MVP for Windows Platform Development, has authored or co-authored four technology books and regularly speaks at industry events around the U.S. Likness has been working with Telerik Kendo UI since it was released in beta several years ago.

Telerik Kendo UI is a framework for modern HTML5 and JavaScript user interface for building modern web applications. Created by Telerik, a Progress company, the Telerik Kendo UI framework provides client-side development in an integrated, compact package. Telerik Kendo UI widgets support responsive design principles.

In May 2015, Progress launched its Telerik Kendo UI Certification Exam. The 40-question, timed exam tests knowledge of basic framework, core widgets and Telerik Kendo UI framework fundamentals.

“The exam is a rigorous assessment of just how well a developer understands Telerik Kendo UI’s complexities and the innovative applications it enables,” Likness said. “I’m honored to be one of the first developers to achieve certification.”
