In this second post in our series of BlackBerry® developer stories (see our previous interview with Paul Haenel), we’re pleased to present an interview with Damian Keeghan, a front end developer for Deloitte in Australia who also builds apps in his spare time. His latest app for the BlackBerry platform is Hivemind, a tracking tool measuring sentiment of events/TV shows/speakers and so on, developed for the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet.
In the above video, Damian talks about using the BlackBerry® WebWorks™ API, which allows his skills to translate to the BlackBerry platform easily and smoothly. This is the same for most programming languages, including HTML, CSS and Adobe® Flash®, which means that any web developer can bring their skills to the BlackBerry platform without having to learn an entirely new code.
“Developing for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet is easy and gives you an opportunity to expand your skills by developing for a new device,” says Damian.
