You heard it first from Alec during BlackBerry® Jam Americas, and today, we’re super psyched to be announcing the start of registration for BlackBerry Jam Asia 2012 (previously known as DevCon Asia)! And this time, we’re bringing the show to Bangkok, Thailand!
Two weeks ago at BlackBerry Jam Americas in San Jose, CA, our CEO, Thorsten Heins shared the vision and promise of BlackBerry 10 with developers. Now you can join us as you find out how to create apps and compelling content for BlackBerry 10 and have your apps ready to launch with BlackBerry 10 in the first calendar quarter of 2013.
Taking place on 29-30 November 2012 at Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre, BlackBerry Jam Asia will give developers access to RIM experts, hands-on tutorials, labs and in-depth sessions to help them build on the new BlackBerry® 10 platform.
Why Jam with us?
Carrying on with our commitment to the developer community, we are excited to provide a BlackBerry® 10 Dev Alpha testing device to qualified developers who attend BlackBerry Jam Asia! Introduced in Orlando in May, the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha testing device was created exclusively for developers for the purpose of testing and debugging BlackBerry 10 apps during development.
Not that you need more reasons, but we want to convince you 110%! Developers, designers, enterprise partners and industry leaders attending the conference will gain hands-on experience with the latest application development tools for the BlackBerry 10 platform. Did I mention we are delivering a wide range of sessions? We’re pleased to launch our session catalog today too – check it out here.
Even more reasons to Jam with us:
- Learn how to take advantage of the BlackBerry platform’s key differentiators – integration at deep levels of the OS, sharing through social APIs, and integration with other third party applications for smooth and seamless interaction between apps
- Collaborate with experts on code and finding a path to port or convert without learning new languages, a key benefit of the BlackBerry 10 platform’s open ecosystem
- The unique opportunity to explore the new BlackBerry 10 tools and application capabilities. The BlackBerry 10 platform leads in open source standards and offers features that can be built into apps that drive user engagement and loyalty, enthusiasm, and the ability to share apps and app experiences
- Dive into the new APIs and features through Sessions, Hands-on labs, and Expert meet and greets
