With BlackBerry Jam Americas happening next month in Orlando, the official BlackBerry Developers Blog has kicked off a new funny but educational video series called the BlackBerry Jam Unplugged. The goal of the series being not to inundate folks with a bunch of heavy talk, huge blog posts but instead, make the passing of development information easily consumable and fun.
Last year we started sharing roadmaps for our tools and APIs with our community, and now we’re looking to give that information a bit more color. Sure, there’s a little bit of information on the roadmaps talking about what the features will entail, but we don’t usually get the chance to explain them in more detail. Of course, we could create long blog articles to try and cover the “ins” and “outs” of the functionality, but that can be a little bit tedious. So we figured we could do something a little different and frankly just a little bit weird. We decided to give you some background on the features as part of a video blog series. Now you may ask, what’s weird about that… well, you’ll have to watch the videos to find out. We’ll be running this video series leading up to BlackBerry Jam Americas in Orlando to give some more background of some of the topics that we’ll be discussing at length during the conference.
I don't want to spoil the videos for anyone but let me just say, if you're interested in learning more about BlackBerry development but get lost in some of the lingo -- you'll want to check the videos out for sure. Thus far, three of them have been published and they're each equally entertaining and informative. You can check out the videos on the BlackBerry Developer Blog or head on over to the BlackBerry Dev YouTube page.
