March BlackBerry Developer Group Meetings

Community

There are now almost 40 BlackBerry® Developer Groups around the world, and interest continues to be strong. New groups are launching almost on a weekly basis, and March is proving to be no different than previous months when it comes to group activity. Several groups have already announced their plans to meet in March.

The well-established Philippine BlackBerry Developer Group is planning to meet on March 16th March 23rd at the Chowking Villar Branch in Makati City from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM. Agenda topics for the meeting include a step-by-step guide to BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet development as well as the new BlackBerry® Messenger (BBM™) API, including a demo on how to use the new APIs in your applications. Their official group site is under construction, but you can visit them on Twitter to get more up-to-date info.

The Vancouver BlackBerry Developer’s Group has also confirmed that they will be hosting a meeting on March 29th from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. The meeting will be held in the Wavefront Accelerated Commercialization building (conference centre – lower level), located at 1055 West Hastings Street. For all the information, please visit the group’s Facebook page or the event page.

And finally, the BlackBerry-Dev-Group-DR in Santa Domingo, Dominican Republic is tentatively planning their first meeting for March 21st. Please check the group’s site frequently for updates on the exact date, time and location.
