Guest post from BlackBerry Developer Evangelist Edgar Parada – Ed.
Near the end of 2012, the BlackBerry Jam Sessions were held for developers around Latin America. There was plenty of intensity and a lot of knowledge to be absorbed by all of the participants. For these events, we gathered different experts from all over the region to take part as competitors, mentors and jury members promoting the development of the BlackBerry 10 platform.
The last of the 2012 BlackBerry Jam Sessions took place in Mexico City. We broke all attendance records with more than 150 developers gathering to share their passion for BlackBerry 10!
