BlackBerry Developer Group Meetings – Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Boston and Edmonton

Community

As mentioned in my earlier BlackBerry® Developer Groups post, September is an exciting month with numerous BlackBerry Developer Groups around the world holding meetups! Now that Chicago, Zurich and Tel Aviv have had their meetings, there are three more groups meeting in the second half of September.

The Brazilian BlackBerry Developer group meets in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo every second Wednesday of each month, and the next meetings are as follows:

Sao Paulo:

Where: Restaurante América, Av. Paulista

When: September 14 (tonight!), 7:30 PM to 10:00 PM

Rio de Janeiro:

Where: Terraneo Bar – Marriott Hotel Rio de Janeiro, Av. Atlântica, 2600

When: September 16, 6:30PM to 9:00 PM

Discussions will revolve around the most recent announcements in the industry, including the BlackBerry® Torch™ 9800 smartphone running BlackBerry® 6 and a preview of the activities at BlackBerry® DEVCON 2010 in San Francisco.

The Edmonton BlackBerry Developers Group will be meeting on September 15th at the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald, with special guest speaker Mike Kirkup, Director of Developer Relations from Research In Motion® (RIM). Mike will be presenting his insights on BlackBerry app development. There will also be a draw for a free BlackBerry Torch 9800 smartphone!

Finally, the New England BlackBerry Developer’s Group is holding its fourth meeting at the Boston Marriott Cambridge on September 21st. The agenda has not yet been finalized, but some potential topics of discussion include: optimizing performance and memory usage, BlackBerry JDE tips & tricks, BlackBerry shared libraries and open source, and advanced UI tricks.

We invite you to start a new group if one doesn’t already exist in your area! Are you planning on attending any of these meetings?
