BlackBerry Jam Starter Session

March 19 – April 18, 2013

This is a hands-on coding workshop to support your app building and get you prepared to submit to the BlackBerry World.

The momentum for the BlackBerry 10 platform is strong – in the last six months BlackBerry World has grown to well over 70,000 apps and games. Now is the time to port your existing apps and build new apps for this rapidly growing Built for BlackBerry platform.

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. Also, there will be a series of optional mini-lessons throughout the day to introduce you to some of the deeper concepts of BlackBerry development.

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