Join us at BlackBerry 10 Jam

Adobe AIR Development


I’m thrilled to share some exciting news with the BlackBerry® developer community. BlackBerry invites you to join us for BlackBerry 10 Jam – a conference dedicated to providing the BlackBerry developer community with insights on the BlackBerry 10 platform; its strengths, the vision, and how developers can make applications that stand out, as well as drive usability and loyalty.

BlackBerry 10 Jam will take place May 1 – 3 at the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek in Orlando, FL and will run as a concurrent conference to our annual BlackBerry World™ conference at the Orlando World Center Marriott.

So, why name the conference “BlackBerry 10 Jam?” BlackBerry 10 Jam will allow developers to be part of the initial conversation and learn about the new platform and the evolution of BlackBerry. There is a lot of excitement here at RIM®, from our users and partners about the BlackBerry 10 platform. This is a great opportunity to harness that excitement and show developers the power of BlackBerry 10.

This conference is a unique opportunity for developers to connect with BlackBerry Platform experts and learn more about the benefits and business opportunities of the BlackBerry platform. Developers will gain insight on building applications for the launch of the new BlackBerry 10 later this year.

Developers can take part in instructor-led labs, information sessions and more. Sessions and labs will be dedicated to:

  • BlackBerry® Native SDK – a C/C++ environment with support for open source libraries
  • HTML5+BlackBerry® WebWorks™ – HTML5 tools with an added layer for app enhancement through BlackBerry WebWorks
  • Adobe® Flash® – The AIR® SDK for BlackBerry allows developers to build apps with Flash+AIR tools
  • Android – the BlackBerry Runtime for Android Apps will run applications that have been packaged from APK files to BAR files and submitted to BlackBerry App World™

We’ll be providing more information on the conference, the sessions, emerging themes and more in the weeks to come, but head over to to register now.

What are you hoping to see?
