Calling all developers and designers! BlackBerry and DevCon5 is presenting a hands-on coding workshops to support your app building capabilities.

The momentum for the BlackBerry 10 platform is strong – in just over the last 6 months the store has grown to well over 120,000 apps and games.  Now is the time to port your existing apps, as well as build new quality apps for this rapidly growing Built for BlackBerry platform.  The workshop will take you through the basic principles of building BlackBerry app, with an overview of what you can expect throughout this process.  After this session, you will have the opportunity to start building your own BlackBerry apps with support from BlackBerry experts/evangelist who will be on hand to answer questions.  We will also have a series of mini-lessons throughout the day to introduce you to some of the deeper concepts of BlackBerry development. The choice is yours - you can join the lessons or continue building your app. 

Please note: you will need your own PC running either Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Mac to participate in the workshop. Please download the free current versions of WebWorks and Cascades developer tools ahead of time by going to https://developer.blackberry.com
