BlackBerry WebWorks for BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet Webcast Series


With a great deal of anticipation and excitement, the BlackBerry® WebWorks™ SDK for BlackBerry® Tablet OS was recently announced at BlackBerry® DEVCON Asia. The BlackBerry WebWorks SDK provides developers with an additional mechanism for writing applications for the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet, in addition to a framework that enables rapid application development and easier portability between the BlackBerry smartphone and BlackBerry PlayBook tablet platforms.

Developers are invited to attend a four-part webcast series about the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, hosted by Application Development Consultants Adam Stanley and Prosanta Bhattacherjee.

During this series, Adam and Pro will demonstrate how to setup the necessary tools to start your own development, and then dive deeper into the various features, methods and capabilities of the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for Tablet OS. Developers will be empowered with the knowledge and guidance necessary to either begin writing their first BlackBerry PlayBook tablet application, or take their existing content to the next level.

    The title of this post has a ridiculous uppercase-to-lowercase letter ratio. It’s as close as you can get to shouting without going capslock on readers. You guys should try to make your titles more reader-friendly.
