Hello, I’m at DEVCON! Where Can I Find a BlackBerry Expert In…?

Dev Con

The BlackBerry® DEVCON 2010 experience is your opportunity to get answers to your toughest development questions and champion your favorite feature requests directly to the development and product management experts from Research In Motion® (RIM).

But outside of the sessions, what are some of the ways to engage with all of the experts at the conference? How about Ask the Experts, Expert One-on-Ones or even Exclusive One-on-Ones? Read on for more!

Drop in to the Ask the Experts area where you can join RIM staff and your fellow attendees at a whiteboard to discuss the specific development topics you need to know more about. There are four main areas, and all are open Monday through Thursday throughout the conference:

  • Java Development
  • Web Development
  • UI Design and Development
  • Enterprise Applications
Monday, September 27th 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM and 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM

Wednesday, September 29th 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM
Thursday, September 30th 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM

Expert One-on-One sessions are slightly different from the Ask the Experts area, in that sessions with subject matter experts need to be booked in advance. Sessions with experts will be available for the following topics:

  • Graphics and Animation

Wednesday, September 29th 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM

Last but not least, a new Exclusive One-on-One session taking place on Monday morning from 9:00 – 11:30 AM.
