BlackBerry Developer Conference: Call for Papers Now Open!

Dev Con

As mentioned in my previous post asking for topics for the upcoming 2010 BlackBerry Developer Conference, I am very please to announced that we have opened up our Call for Papers for DevCon 2010 this week!

The sessions delivered by our community form a big part of the success of the Developer Conference and we are committed more than ever to find the most relevant and insightful sessions for our attendees. I strongly encourage everyone in the community who is considering speaking at the conference to check out my previous post or this forums thread in the BlackBerry Developer Forums calling for topics to get great ideas of what the community is looking for along with your own great suggestions.

The Call for Papers will be open until Monday May 24 but we will start reviewing your submissions as they come in so please don’t feel you need to wait until the end. You can submit your session proposal here:

I am really looking forward to reading all of the great submissions from the community!

    …just read the cal-for-papers
    I'm speaker at many national and international developer congresses,
    but alway I could connect my MacBookPro to use Keynote for a great presentation,
    where I easy can switch to code-samples in Eclipse – don't matter if they run under
    OSX or windows or Ubuntu using Parallels.
    The BlackBerry DevCon is a conference for Developers and I think it would be a good idea,
    to use the machine the speaker uses in his daily work.
    I never had a problem at a conference to use my Mac.
    From other blogs and discussions I read that you will have better support for OSX and Linux –
    so it could be a good starting point to open the conference ;-)
    what do you think ?
