Sharing Telerik Kendo UI assemblies with your development team

One of the problem with using many 3rd party products such as Kendo UI in the past was ensuring that EACH and EVERY developer had the same version of the product installed on their machines!!

All you have to do is set up your own NuGet Server on your own network by following an article such as this one: https://docs.nuget.org/create/hosting-your-own-nuget-feeds

Then, once that is complete, you can go into your Telerik account and download the appropriate NuGet packages that are available for your various products and drop them onto your NuGet server packages directory.

Then once that is complete, you will get a dialog similar to the following when you browse your NuGet server for packages:
