Dean is a Technical Writer at Research In Motion (RIM). He writes documentation for developers, so writing for the BlackBerry Developer's Blog is a natural extension of what he does every day. He has been in the software industry for about 15 years and is either completely delusional or still enjoys it. Either way, he loves being the first to try out a new API and thinks the only way to really understand something is to try to explain it to others. He hopes his posts will be easy to read and useful.
