Developing Apps in Latin America? Be Sure to Attend BlackBerry DevCon Americas 2011

Dev Con

BlackBerry DevCon Americas 2011

The market for BlackBerry® platform apps in Latin America is bigger than ever, and we know this is exciting work. That’s why this year’s BlackBerry® DevCon Americas 2011 is focused on helping Latin American developers do great things and learn more about developing for the BlackBerry platform (in Spanish, too!).

This year’s sessions are diverse – check out the full session catalog to see everything that will be covered, including the 14 sessions that will be available in Spanish. These sessions will be presented by top Research In Motion® (RIM®) experts, special guest speaker and Visionary Game Developer Jane McGonigal, and community speakers from Assanka and Crackberry.com. You will hear from companies active in the Latin American developer community, including Action Creations, Activ, Eudaimonia, Infocket, Sensebyte Mobile, and [Q] Interactiva.

Aside from the sessions, you can also bring your questions to the Ask the Experts area, where RIM experts will be on hand specifically for the Latin America region. In this area, you’ll also be able to get some valuable input from your fellow attendees.

If it’s hands-on work you’re looking for, sign up for training sessions on using Adobe® Flex®, Adobe® AIR®, and BlackBerry® WebWorks™ to learn how to build apps for the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet. Both one-day courses are offered on Monday, October 17 from 9 AM to 5 PM and cost $499 USD each.

Make sure you don’t miss out on everything BlackBerry DevCon Americas 2011 has to offer for Latin American developers – register now! (If you need to tell your boss why you should attend, we’ve made it easy by summarizing it all with this Convince Your Boss Letter written in Spanish!)
