[ YouTube link for mobile viewing ]

Being a mother of twins and a mobile app developer has to be quite a handful, but Kathryn has managed to wear both these hats with style. With historical interests in web design, she took a look into the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK and managed to turn these interests into working skills, with the result being top notch mobile application development. Kathryn attended the BlackBerry® Messenger (BBM™) Apps Hackathon in New York this past August, which allowed her to collaborate with other developers and improve the functionality of her apps. Her project, called PowWow, is a one-stop shop for organizing social events that leverages the BBM social platform.

Check out Kathryn’s story in the video above, and prepare to experience the contagious passion that she has for web-based mobile app development. If you want to get into that experience yourself, blog post about upcoming Hackathon events – one might be happening in your area soon!
