RIM is getting ready for BlackBerry World 2012 (May 1st to 3rd), this is where we’ll most likely see the new BlackBerry 10 smartphones. In conjunction with this RIM has also sent a message to the developer community to come participate in the “BlackBerry 10 Jam”. RIM says this is “a conference dedicated to providing the BlackBerry developer community with insights on the BlackBerry 10 platform; its strengths, the vision, and how developers can make applications that stand out, as well as drive usability and loyalty.”
Here are the full session details, which costs $299(USD):
- BlackBerry Native SDK – a C/C++ environment with support for open source libraries
- HTML5+BlackBerry WebWorks™ – HTML5 tools with an added layer for app enhancement through BlackBerry WebWorks
- Adobe Flash – The AIR SDK for BlackBerry allows developers to build apps with Flash+AIR tools
- Android – the BlackBerry Runtime for Android Apps will run applications that have been packaged from APK files to BAR files and submitted to BlackBerry App World
RIM also noted that “Developers will gain insight on building applications for the launch of the new BlackBerry 10 later this year”. It was recently announced that the latest BlackBerry App World houses over 60,000 apps and see over 174 million apps downloaded every month.
