The First BlackBerry Jam Sessions Hackathon Kicks Off in Brazil

BlackBerry Jam

[ YouTube link for mobile viewing ]

On August 25th, an event of particular awesomeness happened in Recife, Brasil — the inaugural BlackBerry® Jam Sessions Hackathon. Fuelled by pizza and energy drinks, over 80 developers had 10 hours to create their apps for BlackBerry® 10, using HTML, C++, Cascades™, Adobe® AIR® or Java®/Android™. Once the dust had settled 10 hours later, there were 16 apps ready to be showcased, as well as many happy and satisfied developers.

Our very own Demian Borba was on the scene, and captured some great photos to boot. Check out his recap of the event, and while you’re at it, have a look at the BlackBerry Jam Sessions calendar to see if one will be happening in a town near you.
