Support for COVID-19 Research and Support Initiatives
People and organizations are coming together with open source and research initiatives and developing new applications and analysis to help during the COVID-19 pandemic. To assist in these efforts, Infragistics will be offering qualified organizations and programs complimentary access to developer and analytics tools and support. Organizations operating non-commercial programs such as hackathons, research initiatives, etc. should contact Steve Johnston, Product Marketing Manager at Infragistics [email protected] to learn more.
Release of New Open Source Applications
To accelerate development of new applications that solve problems during this pandemic, especially for organizations in healthcare, government, and logistics, Infragistics will be releasing a series of open source, sample applications. The first to be released is the Angular COVID-19 Dashboard, which provides a real-time view of current global data related to the COVID-19 Pandemic. This dynamic dashboard was built using Indigo.Design and Ignite UI for Angular leveraging timely data from CSSEGISandData/COVID-19 to create a useful and impactful visualization. Additional applications will be released in the coming weeks.
Special Programs for Small Businesses
Infragistics has many customers who are consultants and small businesses providing design and development services across industries and around the world. We recognize the important role that those organizations play in keeping key businesses and applications running. To ensure that those organizations can continue to operate and maintain access to the tools that they need to be productive, Infragistics is making new discounted packages for our products and services available to small businesses. Small businesses may contact their Infragistics representative or email [email protected] to participate in the program.
