New RIM Webcast series announced: Get building for BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet


As many of you have heard by now, at the Adobe® MAX conference on October 25th, Mike Lazaridis made the developer community an exciting offer. Developers who have their BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet application approved for BlackBerry App World™ storefront prior to the launch of the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet may be eligible for a free BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. We want to help our developer community take advantage of this amazing opportunity and are hosting a webcast to help everyone get started, or, for those who have already begun to develop for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, to discover the benefits of the new SDK.

Register for our upcoming webcast “Develop for the BlackBerry® Tablet OS SDK for Adobe® AIR®” to learn how to install and use the new SDK, create an application and test it. We’ll have both Research In Motion® (RIM) and Adobe experts on hand to take you through the process and answer your questions during our Q&A period.

Date: Thursday, November 4, 2010
Time: 2:00 PM EST / 11:00 AM PST
Prosanta Bhattacherjee,
Application Development Consultant, Research In Motion Limited

Renaun Erickson,
Adobe Developer Evangelist, Adobe Systems Incorporated

This is the initial webcast in a five-week series to help you create compelling applications for the new platform. Every week we’ll cover new things and progress to more advanced topics as we move forward. Our goal is to make the development process as easy as possible, so you can qualify for the free BlackBerry PlayBook tablet offer.
