BlackBerry DevCon Americas 2011

Since the launch of the BlackBerry® WebWorks™ platform, we’ve heard firsthand from developers that it’s a powerful development approach that is designed to make it easy to build web applications for BlackBerry smartphones and the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet. Proving how important web development is for mobile devices, this year’s BlackBerry® DevCon Americas 2011 puts mobile web development in the spotlight. There’s an exciting range of sessions, labs, training and not-to-be missed learning opportunities for anyone involved in developing mobile web apps.

  • Learn how to monetize your apps with BlackBerry Application Platform Services such as the BlackBerry® Payment Service and the BlackBerry® Advertising Service (DEV50)
  • Meeting web industry leaders such as Assanka, Dojo, jQuery, PhoneGap, and Sencha.
  • Discuss the future of mobile web applications and how frameworks such as the BlackBerry WebWorks Platform are positioned to help (DEV48) with a knowledgeable panel, including representatives from Assanka, Nitobi Software Inc. and uxebu Consulting Ltd. & Co. KG.
