Dogfooding is such a weird word. It doesn't sound like something even close to a good thing. Despite that lingual issue, it is the very best thing to do. And we did. However, we didn't do it because we wanted to test our product a little more. The reason behind it is way nobler.

Oh c'mon, don't tell me you believe we are not working on other things than the big ones from the roadmap. Sure we are. And it's unfair to leave them lying around without proper attention. Nobody puts our tweaks in a corner. #SmallThingsMatter

Marketplace, GitHub, NuGet, Ideas, all those channels have one simple goal. Reach out and shape the community around Kentico. We are very aware of how beneficial the community is for us. Even though it's not always on public display, we are doing our best to listen and give back. The last version and frankly the entire year makes no difference.

Customization is Kentico's most powerful virtue. I've said that multiple times during my time here, and it's still a rock-solid truth. The ability to customize the hell out of it is a pillar stone for a superior platform.

Four hundred horsepower, insane torque, listening to the engine moaning out its song. Millions of people could relate to this. One day this mass of high octane consumers will realize they need to check your e-shop for a new GT supercharger, just because they are watching a motor show that was recently reborn. Thousands of page hits per second and two million new contacts in an hour. Can your rig handle it?

Less Code Is More

Visual Studio 2015 is here for quite a while and C#6 as well. While I was going through the new features, I had this flashback. It's two years go. I'm sitting in front of the work desktop and wondering why the heck I must create a constructor to initialize my perfectly clean, one-lined property. That's one of the reasons I simply can't let the new syntax introduced with C#6 pass by. Auto-Property Initializers are just so damn good I want to open the old code files and delete all useless constructors. And that's not all.
