Time for developers to dig into BlackBerry® 10 and get ready to build.
On the BlackBerry DevBlog, http://devblog.blackberry.com/2012/03/join-us-at-blackberry-10-jam/, RIM today announced that it will host BlackBerry 10 Jam on May 1-3 as a concurrent conference to BlackBerry World™, the largest annual gathering for the BlackBerry® ecosystem.
BlackBerry 10 Jam will be dedicated to developers and is a unique opportunity for developers to connect with BlackBerry platform experts and learn more about the benefits and business opportunities of the BlackBerry platform. The show will give developers insight on building applications in anticipation of the launch of the new BlackBerry 10 OS later this year.
Developers will be able to take part in instructor led labs, information sessions and more. Sessions and labs will be dedicated to:
- BlackBerry® Native SDK – a C/C++ environment with support for open source libraries
- HTML5+BlackBerry® WebWorks™ – HTML5 tools with an added layer for app enhancement through BlackBerry WebWorks
- Adobe® Flash® – The AIR® SDK for BlackBerry allows developers to build apps with Flash+AIR tools
- Android – the Android runtime will run applications that have been packaged from APK files to BAR files and submitted to BlackBerry App World™
BlackBerry 10 Jam will take place at the Hilton Bonnet Creek in Orlando Florida. More details and info can be found at www.blackberryjamconference.com. The BlackBerry 10 Jam conference is limited to developer attendees, but you will have an opportunity to speak with developers and meet with them as part of the BlackBerry World press program.
