DevCon5’s robust conference agenda spans three tracks: Back to Basics, Advanced HTML5 and Mobile Development, with in-depth sessions providing attendees with the information and tools they need to exploit the capabilities of revolutionary HTML5 technology.

After the session, attendees will have the opportunity to start building their own BlackBerry apps with support from BlackBerry experts and evangelists who will be on hand to answer any questions. BlackBerry will also host a series of mini-lessons throughout the day to introduce attendees to some of the deeper concepts of BlackBerry development.
