If You Build It, They Will Come: the BlackBerry 10 Jam “Unconference”

Announcements

TITLE_IMAGE

We’re just under a month until the BlackBerry® 10 Jam Conference and I’ve been writing and tweeting a lot about what developers can expect to see at the show. Now I’m excited to get to share our latest news: On Thursday May 3rd, the last day of the show, we will host an “Unconference”. This gives us an opportunity to work hand in hand with our developer community to build sessions and discussions on topics closest to your hearts.

We are asking for your ideas for session topics and to vote on the topics that most interest you. We’ve talked a lot about wanting to engage with the developer community and to show that we are listening, and this is another great way to build on that commitment.

So, how do you get involved? First, we need your ideas. You can leave comments here, visit our Facebook® page or get in touch with us on Twitter® (@BlackBerryDev). We’ll collect all of the ideas and in a couple of weeks, we will host a Twtpoll and Facebook poll for everyone to vote. You can check back here for updates!

What topics would you like to see discussions on? I’ll give you a topic I’d be interested in seeing: “My App is Great, But Now What? – Making an app a business; the importance of business and marketing planning.” Or maybe one like “How to Win the Enterprise App Opportunity with Gamification.”

What do you think? Let us know in the comments!
