Calling All BlackBerry Developers... Be sure to attend MY Session at BlackBerry DevCon 2011!!

BlackBerry DevCon 2011!
By Kevin Michaluk on 31 Aug 2011 05:30 pm EDT

Guess who's going to be giving one of the sessions at BlackBerry DevCon this year? I AM!! While it's not up in the session catalog just yet (should be there by the end of the week), I'll be on stage for a breakout session giving tips and tricks to BlackBerry developers in attendance on how to work with bloggers and the media to maximize the exposure of their app efforts. Here's the overview:

Session Title: Working with Bloggers and Media
Technical Level: General (Suitable for ALL devs, whether beginner or advanced!)
Type: Breakout Session

Abstract: Developers need to understand how they can leverage bloggers and social media to increase their success with very little cost. Learn from one of the best experts in the field, Kevin Michaluk, founder of CrackBerry.com on what the best tips and tricks are for engaging in this space.

Key Takeaways:

  • Learn what to do (and more importantly, what NOT to do) in order to get a blogger's attention and make sure your app gets the free publicity it deserves.
  • Learn how to engage with the BlackBerry enthusiast community to build better apps and a following of loyal users.
  • Learn what to do next. Getting your app announced and reviewed is only the beginning of the promotional process.

So if you're hitting up DevCon this year, be sure to checkout my session! You can keep your eyes on the BlackBerry DevCon website for more details as they emerge. And if you're not heading to San Francisco for BlackBerry DevCon 2011, what are you waiting for? Register Now!! Hope to see you there!

Congrats on the session, Kevin!

Once we're able to start scheduling sessions, I'll add this one.


congrats. u deserve it.


I'll look forwards to it


congrats kevin. make sure you record it for us who cannot attend.

kevin, if rim came calling...would you sell?


Nice Kev! Next step in CB future!


wow,,,,, next ,,,,, it will be the CEO chair for Kevin !


This is wicked!

From listening to CB and MN podcasts, I can tell you not only have a very deep understanding of the mobile market and industry, but of the business side of things as well. Its easy to let the blogs and forums cover up whats needed to run a site as successful as CB.


Goooo Kevin!!!!

You made us proud. Start writing your scripts and making powerpoint slides. Tell the blackberry nation, "Yes we can"


working with blogger and media... hmm.... are you gonna be the next director of developer relations?


will be there!


congrats, Kevin !
I'll be there - hopefully my own Session (COM26) won't be at same time-slot ;-)
last year was my first DevCON I attended and this year I'm speaking there and will also go to DevCON Europe.
cu all there in SFO


I think this is a great idea! Nice work Kevin!


I'm probably going to the DevCon.

Maybe in this session I'll learn what I've been doing wrong when it comes to getting your attention :P


Hi Kev, for those who could not able to attend, will there be any video upload to CB?
