Second RIM and Adobe Webcast announced: My First App for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet


In our first of five webcasts, we covered how to set up your development environment, create a basic application and test it with the BlackBerry® Tablet OS Simulator. We’re taking it to the next step in this second webcast – we’ll help you work with Adobe® Flash® Builder and Adobe Flash Pro to create applications for the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet, as well as covering hot topics like debugging using Flash Builder and the BlackBerry Tablet OS Simulator.

Register for our upcoming webcast “My First App for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet” to learn how to install and use the new SDK, create an application and test it. We’ll have both Research In Motion® (RIM) and Adobe experts on hand to take you through the process and answer your questions during our Q&A period.

Date: Thursday, November 11, 2010
Time: 2:00 PM EST / 11:00 AM PST

Prosanta Bhattacherjee,
Application Development Consultant, Research In Motion Limited

Renaun Erickson,
Adobe Developer Evangelist, Adobe Systems Incorporated

This is the second webcast in a five-week series to help you create compelling applications for the new platform. Every week we’ll cover new things and progress to more advanced topics as we move forward. Our goal is to make the development process as easy as possible, so you can qualify for the free BlackBerry PlayBook tablet offer. (There is a limit of one free BlackBerry Playbook per person. Certain other restrictions apply.)

Please remember that the plan is to provide one free BlackBerry PlayBook tablet to every registered vendor with a BlackBerry® App World™-approved AIR application that is available for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet prior to launch. The applications will need to meet the BlackBerry App World Vendor Guidelines, and there will of course be some terms and conditions that are principally designed to prevent abuse of the promotion, but the intent is to reward developers who are working on apps in advance of the product launch. We want to help our developer community participate in this amazing opportunity, and thus we are hosting this webcast to help everyone get started — or, for those who have already begun to develop for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, to discover the benefits of the new SDK.

    when we finished out the first webcast i was under the impression that all of the questions that hadnt been answered during the webcast would be answered in the form of a write up once the webcast had been archived. Is this still going to happen or ?
