BlackBerry Developer Conference – Call For Topics

Community

Although the WES 2010 is just around the corner with a great lineup of developer sessions, we have already started planning for what will be the best BlackBerry® Developer Conference ever (September 27-30, 2010 in San Francisco, CA).

As part of the planning process, we are looking for feedback from the community on what topics and areas you would like to see covered at the conference this year. Last year we had over 100 sessions for our attendees, and we are planning on a similar number again for 2010. We want these sessions to cover the information you need to be successful on the BlackBerry® platform – from creating compelling user interfaces to integration with native applications and everything in between.

We are asking for your feedback on topics now for two main reasons:

  1. We want to create a conference that contains the most valuable content that you, the developer community, would want to see at the event;
  2. Our “Call for Papers” from the community will open up in the next four to six weeks, and your feedback will provide a great starting place for the many community members who want to speak at the conference.

To ensure we receive the most complete feedback, you can provide your ideas in the comments on this blog post or on this forum post in the Developer Forums. I look forward to hearing all of your great ideas!
