BlackBerry 10 Jam World Tour registration now open

BlackBerry Jam Registration
By DJ Reyes on 23 May 2012 11:09 am EDT

Update: Toronto is now sold out! If you're were able to get yourself onto the waiting list, hang tight. We've heard registration opens every now and then when they have more spaces available. This could also see them open up another venue in Cananda, seeing as it been very popular.

If you're planning to attend one of the BlackBerry 10 Jam Road Shows, then you'll be pleased to know that registration has now opened for North America and Europe. Latin America dates have yet to be announced and registration will open soon for the Asia locations.

Remember there is a limited a supply of BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha devices and while non-developers are welcome to the event, only developers will be eligible to receive a Dev Alpha. Minors are also welcome, as long as they are accompanied by an adult and they register as a minor as per the terms and conditions.

The agenda for the event looks full-packed, seeing the afternoon go into the breakout sessions. These are separated into Native and Web sessions, so you'll have to decide whether you're going down the WebWorks route or Native route as you'll have to register for these sessions before the event.

If you're a developer it would be an event I'd recommend attending. It's free for one and there's a chance of you getting a BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha. I have already registered for the London event and I am very much looking forward to the day.

Which locations are you planning to attend? Let us know in the comments.

BlackBerry 10 Jam World Tour registration now open


Registered for the Toronto event.

Wished the Native and Web sessions didn't overlap. Although I am heading to the web track, I would have loved to attend some native sessions also...

Same here. Although, I'm heading down the web route, I would've like to take some of the native sessions in case I want to go down that route. It all sounds interesting, want to attend both.

Just tried to register, Says the registration is closed.!
Mentions a way to register to get on a waiting list, but I see no option for that....

It seems that the Toronto event may be full already. I have seen many tweets of people registering to the Toronto one. Best thing to do is get yourselves onto the waiting list.

Registered for BlackBerry 10 Jam Toronto,

It might actually be full, or perhaps downtime on the server end. I chose the web route since it's what I'm most comfortable with. I checked out the descriptions of the sessions, I really think this will definitely help a lot of developers. Especially the one about making your HTML5 apps look like Cascades made apps, very cool stuff.

For anyone who's interested, I've noticed for BlackBerry 10 Jam Toronto there is actually a third route, you have the standard native and web routes but there's also an enterprise development route. Very nice

Registered for Toronto event last night! I picked one native session and 3 webworks sessions. Cascades sounds lucrative enough to consider native development.

Damn, didn't get in to Toronto.... how small is this event?? Sounds like a lot of people couldn't register

Registered in Paris France for webworks session. Wondering like StikiGreenZ if I shouldn't register the cascade session ... but I think I'd better stick to my current area : HTML5/CSS/JS. Let's see how far we can go using webworks ... then, if not 'native powered' enough I'll consider native.

Registered last night for the Toronto #BB10Jam. (Native/Cascades stream)

I think the fact that Toronto filled up so quickly is testament to the excitement Devs in the region have for BB10. Or perhaps it means that they didn't get a large enough venue.

Either way, super excited. Can't wait.

Yeah, and the registration process started later in the evening yesterday, probably one of the fastest if not the fastest venue for BlackBerry 10 Jam World Tour.

It looks like Toronto is the only one that's sold out among those that are open for registration! - Sweet apps for the fans

This will be awesome! Registered for the Austin, TX event; not that far from good old Round Rock. I have been experimenting with app building and am looking forward to getting a lot of insight surrounding the process.

Last time I checked they hadn't unblocked the general link, but I had an email from earlier that took me direct to the registration page.

Going to Toronto one. First I had to go on Waiting list then I got email from the event coordinators with the Link to register. Apparently they added more seats to satisfy more people.

Registered for the Toronto Event this morning @ 8:30. I knew it was going to fill up fast. See everyone there!!

Registered for Austin Event... In shock... 10 years of working on BlackBerry and I think this is the first time coming to Austin for a public event....

Am really looking forward to attending the nyc session. I was confused by the terms "native" and "web". I ended up registering for "native" because I am interested in cascade and c++ programming. I called RIM and got assigned a case number to figure out how to register. I am a retired IBM AS400 COBOL RPG programmer. Anyone ever heard of COBOL and RPG? Was pleasantly suprised it is all about programming.
