The BlackBerry Jam events are where developers can attend and gain some useful knowledge in developing apps for the BlackBerry platform. With presentations from both seasoned developers and BlackBerry employees. It is also a chance for developers to be updated on the latest SDKs and upcoming goodies on the BlackBerry development front.
BlackBerry Jam Asia was the most recent event, which took place last September, where lots of new and interesting things were presented.
BlackBerry Jam Europe was due to take place in January 2014, I was looking forward to attending this time around but it has just been confirmed that BlackBerry Jam Europe 2014 will not be proceeding. Following the recent turn of events within BlackBerry, I guess it isn't much of a surprise.
Thanks for your ongoing interest in our BlackBerry® Jam events. We’re writing today to let you know that we are taking some time to reevaluate our current events strategy and it has been determined that we will not proceed with BlackBerry Jam Europe in 2014. That said, we will continue to keep you updated as new events and BlackBerry activities become available.
BlackBerry events have always been purpose-driven, designed to help get your hands on new products, get familiar with our services, to learn about our future plans and roadmaps, and to demonstrate the powerful capabilities of BlackBerry platforms.
We will continue to engage with our developers in more focused ways, designed with a greater emphasis on the opportunities we have to talk to our developers about what matters most to you. We will keep you informed of future BlackBerry developer events.

While BlackBerry Jam isn't happening anymore, it seems there will still be BlackBerry events we can look forward to. You can also still view videos from previous BlackBerry Jam events via the BlackBerry Jam website.
