Kegan Blumenthal,
GM of Sencha Inc.
While 2020 has been turbulent, to say the least, I am proud to say the Sencha team has been proceeding business as usual; sticking to the original roadmap and even pushing out new products and initiatives along the way.

As we head into the end of the year and on to 2021, we want to do everything we can to help empower your teams’ velocity. We’re happy to announce the End of Year Incentives beginning today until 12/31/20. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach but we’re more flexible than ever and eager to help where we can.

Before I get into that, I’d like to highlight some of the progress we’ve achieved this year so far:

Recent Release

Sencha has partnered with the Ext.NET team to provide this offering through the Sencha line of products .Ext.NET is an advanced ASP.NET Core component framework that incorporates the Ext JS library to build cross-browser, blazing fast web applications.

  • Summaries for groups and total: Quickly define functions for aggregation such as sum, min, max count, and more per column
