One thing we heard over and over again during the BlackBerry® Got Game Port-a-Thon was that developers loved getting almost instant responses to their questions from one of the many members of our Developer Relations team. Why stop a good thing? Starting Wednesday, November 21st and continuing right up until January 30th, we’ll have be offering live time in the forums, where you can expect to get responses as quickly as we can type them.
How will it work?
Two hours a week, every week, we’ll address one of the developer audiences listed below. We know we have an active developer community, and we want you to participate. Since there’s no way to lock a forum thread, we’ll go low tech: if you know the answer to a question and you intend to respond to it, simply reply to the thread indicating “got it” then go ahead and type your response. This simple claim of ownership will prevent multiple devs from responding to the same question at the same time. And as per usual in the developer forums, if your question was answered, mark it as “solved” or if you see a good response, put a “like” on it. Basically, just give recognition to those who deserve it.
When and where?
