BlackBerry Developer Day Returns to Mobile World Congress 2011

Announcements

I am excited to announce that we will again be holding a BlackBerry® Developer Day at Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona, Spain. This one-day event will take place on Tuesday February 15th as part of the MWC App Planet Application Developer Conferences.

We will be holding general sessions in our main auditorium to get you up to speed on the latest and greatest information on the BlackBerry development platform with special focus on how to best monetize your apps on BlackBerry App World™ and integrate with the BBM Social Platform. We will also be hosting a number of hands-on-labs covering BlackBerry® WebWorks™ and Adobe® AIR® development on the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet. You can attend sessions either in the morning or afternoon – and don’t forget to bring your laptops to get the most out of the bootcamp sessions!

Also, don’t miss our special AppCircus Spotlight on BlackBerry between 13.30 and 14.30. This event is a unique chance to showcase your BlackBerry app and win a BlackBerry PlayBook tablet! If you’re a developer with a BlackBerry app, you can submit it here to do a 3-minute pitch at this AppCircus Spotlight. Deadline to apply is February 4th 2011, midnight CET!
