$1,000 Add-on Contest Winner
As you may know, we have recently launched Kentico Marketplace
- a place where developers can publish their web parts, templates, modules and other add-ons for Kentico CMS. The Marketplace now contains 36 products. During the launch, we also announced a $1,000 contest for the best Kentico add-on. And the winner is...
My Twitter! Web Part by user "The Guru"
The web part was the most popular item on the marketplace. It displays user information and user status directly from Twitter. You can download it here
We would also like to recognize excellent submissions from other developers:
We are happy to see how these products add missing pieces to our solution. While the multi-file browser-based upload functionality is currently not supported out-of-the-box, our long-term partner IBL Software have created a special module for uploading multiple files using Silverlight and other users can purchase the module from them. It's a win-win-win situation - Kentico can offer this functionality, the author can make some extra money and the clients get what they need.
If you developed anything related to Kentico CMS that can be useful for others, please be sure to submit it on the DevNet portal

How to Get Answers to Your Support Questions Faster
We are constantly trying to improve our support so that we can answer your questions faster. We analyzed the way we resolve issues and we figured out that we often do not have enough information to answer the question and we have to go through several cycles with client to get the information we need. It led us to creation of an on-line support form where you can submit your questions. Using this form ensures that you provide us with all basic information we need and we will be able to answer your question in shorter time.
You can find the form here
The form is NOT a replacement of our current support channels. You can keep sending e-mail or calling us. Still, if you use it, it can help you get the answer faster.
