BlackBerry DEVCON Discussion – What to expect

Dev Con

Just a few days ago, I participated in a great discussion with some of the key people driving the BlackBerry® Application Platform today. Chris Smith, Tyler Lessard, Tim Neil and I talked about a bunch of different topics, including some of the exciting developments we’re working on for this year’s BlackBerry DEVCON!

We’ll post a few of these discussion clips over the next week, with this first one being all about the conference. I think it’s safe to say that DEVCON is my favorite time of year. As frantic as it may be, this is the most exciting time when many of our plans and preparations come together. So here’s what the group had to say about “what to expect”.

Check out our discussion:

DEVCON is not to be missed! Keep your eye right here on the Developer’s Blog for more previews of the event, or follow along with our to-the-minute DEVCON conversation at @BlackBerryDev.
