Our lives are constantly integrating with technology, as well as expanding beyond a desktop environment. It’s on the wave of this trend that Thorben works as a mobile application developer along with a wider team at Gowalla that creates top-notch apps. While attending the BlackBerry® Messenger (BBM™) Apps Hackathon in New York last August, Thorben worked collaboratively with fellow developers and representatives from Research In Motion® (RIM®) on his ShareIt app, which is designed to allow users to share memo and task items with peers in a BBM contact list.
Check out the video above for the full story on Thorben, ShareIt, and the BBM Apps Hackathon. (Pssst – there might be a Hackathon happening near you! Check out our blog post about upcoming Hackathon events.)
