If you are a .NET developer, then there is a high probability that you are familiar with these third-party tools (at least you would have heard of them). So which of these is the one you would like to go ahead with, considering the fact that both of them do not come cheap.
The Telerik Vs Devexpress Showdown
Personally, I have used Devexpress for Winforms and Telerik for ASP.NET Webforms and the experience was more or less the same. I am pretty sure that Devexpress would be having a kick ass webform suite as well. Though I strongly feel the support for Telerik could be improved a little bit.
Both of these tools have their demo’s and trials available so before you actually take decision, do try it out.
The learning curve would be more or less the same depending on your experience with .NET and third-party tools.
Telerik has support for PHP which I extensively use for my Zend/CodeIgniter based applications.
In the end it’s all about the features you need and which of these tools – Telerik or Devexpress helps you with your development.
