BlackBerry Jam Starter Session – Vancouver and Saskatoon



Momentum for the BlackBerry 10 platform has been explosive since the launch of BlackBerry 10 on January 30th. BlackBerry World currently has over 70,000 apps and games and is growing every day.  There hasn’t been a better time to start building for BlackBerry.

Wavefront and BlackBerry are teaming up to present hands-on development workshops to support your app building and get you prepared to submit to BlackBerry World.

The BlackBerry Jam Starter Session will take you through the basic principles of building BlackBerry apps, with an overview of what to expect through the process.  After the session, you will have the opportunity to start building your own BlackBerry apps with support from on-site BlackBerry Evangelists.

Who should attend?
•    Developers with a HTML5, Adobe AIR, or Android app ready to port to BlackBerry 10
•    Experienced developers wanting to learn more about the BlackBerry opportunity

Why develop apps for BlackBerry?
•    Increase your reach to a new audience of early adopters looking for great quality apps
•    Showcase your apps that may be buried or lost in other saturated stores

What to bring & prepare:
•    Laptop running Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Mac OS X
•    Download and install the free current versions of BlackBerry 10 WebWorks or BlackBerry 10 Native SDK (Cascades) developer tools
