Today, in partnership with Telerik and PreEmptive Solutions, we are launching an offer for user groups and their developers. The offer includes the following:
If you create and publish a WP7 application that uses Telerik’s controls and PreEmptive’s analytics for WP7, then your user group gets $100. You as the developer get to keep the app and also get some sweet controls from Telerik and analytics from PreEmptive which will they provide free of charge through the end of 2011.
Telerik is making available a number of controls that help with visualizing data, animations/transitions, and picking dates & times. Below I’m showing the Gauge and DatePicker controls:
If you’ve been thinking about jumping into creating an app on WP7 or have just been feeling guilty about eating all the food at your user group meetings then now is your chance to get some great tools and to give back to your group!
For the full scoop on the offer, go check out the details.
Update (2/16/2011): If this offer is of interest to you, I urge you to not wait: the offer is limited to the first 500 participants.

@xtianus Please see the full details on Telerik's site: www.telerik.com/.../user-groups.aspx. You can also email them at firstname.lastname@example.org if you still have questions.
Question... It seems to be a bit confusing for the people who have been one of the 500... With that said, I downloaded the controls but still don't know or can figure how to be apart of the que that is eligible for the $100 and more importantly free controls through 2011... Thanks so much for any clarification...
@Catto thanks for letting us know you like this :-)
