DEVCON 2010 BlackBerry Developer Day – Thursday September 30th

Community

If you are already attending BlackBerry® DEVCON 2010, I want to make sure you have included BlackBerry Developer Day in your conference and travel plans – and if you have yet to register, I want you to understand why BlackBerry Developer Day is reason enough to book now!

On the last day of DEVCON, we literally turn the conference on its head for BlackBerry Developer Day. No more speaking sessions. The day is informal, a lot of fun, and all about listening to you!

There are two main types of sessions: Discussion sessions are designed to harness the collective experience of the developer community as Research In Motion® (RIM) platform and program experts lead interactive conversations emerging technologies, market insights, and best practices. Roundtable sessions are your opportunity to have your voice heard as small groups discuss issues and common challenges, investigate important feature requests, explore workarounds and solutions, and share helpful tips-and-tricks.

Here are just a few of the other can’t-miss highlights:

  • Guest keynote from Ted Cohen! Ted is the Managing Partner of TAG Strategic LCC and is a recognized authority in music, mobile, IPTV and product & service development. In an industry that’s been slow to embrace change, Cohen is the exception to the stereotypical music-exec rule. Over a diverse career, Cohen has been instrumental in embracing and exploring new technologies and business models such as digital downloads and online music subscriptions, custom compilations, wireless services, high-definition audio and Internet radio.

  • A Super Apps Executive Panel featuring RIM executives from the development and developer relations organizations will explore ways to build the most compelling and
    addictive applications possible – apps your customers won’t be able to live without!
  • Learn from BlackBerry Developer Success Stories in a special panel with some of the most successful developers in the community!
  • The closing reception is your last chance to hang out with fellow developers and reflect on the week.

It’s not too late – register now! (psst – and save a few bucks by checking out all the available discounts)
