BlackBerry Developer Day in Australia!

Community

As part of our ongoing commitment to help developers all over the world create best-in-class applications on the BlackBerry® platform, I am pleased to announce that I will be hosting a BlackBerry Developer Day in Sydney, Australia on the 24th of March. This free event is a fantastic opportunity for both new and experienced BlackBerry developers alike to learn how to build deeply integrated, always-on apps that are highly engaging and relevant – apps that people will love. And of course, the event is a fantastic place to network with other BlackBerry developers!

About Neil S.

When he’s not out riding the waves off the sunny eastern coast of Australia, you’re likely to find Neil at his desk answering emails, taking calls, or cutting code in his role of Application Developer Consultant for Research In Motion (RIM). As a member of the Developer Relations team Neil spends a great deal of time working with Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) in Australia and New Zealand helping them get the most out of the BlackBerry platform, and also working behind the scenes to ensure everything is “most excellent” for all developers. Neil’s been developing for the BlackBerry for five years and prior to joining RIM ran a successful BlackBerry software company. He also likes hats.
