The BlackBerry® Jam Americas 2012 general session featured keynotes from our own Don Lindsay, Vice President, User Experience Design and Chris Smith, Vice President, Application Platform & Tools. During their time on stage, they announced the commitment from RIM® to making an open platform and eco-system where developers will be fully able to participate in the core BlackBerry® 10 experience.
Our pledge to developers at the keynote on Peek & FLOW means that we’ve updated Beta SDKs for every BlackBerry 10 development environment and delivered dozens of new APIs, frameworks, components and controls. On top of it all, we’ve also released a new BlackBerry 10 OS and system components for Dev Alpha devices and simulators that give you everything you need test your apps fully.
Additionally, we furthered our commitment to HTML5 and Web Technology through our adoption and contributions to open standards and our relationships with industry partners like jQuery, Adobe®, and Sencha.
We are truly committed to building an open platform and partnering with developers. Be sure to check our flight arrival boards to see what’s coming up from us next and watch Don Lindsay & Chris Smith’s keynote for full details on announcements and releases!
