The BlackBerry Developer Relations team (aka Alex Kinsella and Victoria Berry) is hanging out in San Francisco this week at the Game Developers Conference, but they aren't there just for fun. Not only is BlackBerry a sponsor of the GDC again this year, they also have a booth set up (#1909) where they have a bunch of super cool gaming and platform experts on board to present some great sessions.

The formal sessions include:

  • BlackBerry 10 – A Game Developers Platform – Wednesday March 7 @ 11am-12pm
  • Introduction to the BlackBerry PlayBook Native SDK: Building a Sample Application – Wednesday March 7 @ 2-3pm
  • Porting Games to BlackBerry PlayBook – Wednesday March 7 @ 3:30-4:30pm
  • Social Gaming using BBM and Scoreloop – Thursday March 8 @ 10-11am
  • Writing Web Games for BlackBerry 10 and PlayBook – Thursday March 8 @ 2:30-3:30pm
  • Make Money on BlackBerry! – Thursday March 8 @ 4-5pm

Presenters include Volker Hirsch, Anders Jeppsson, Sean-Paul Taylor, Jonathan Feldstein, Ramgopal Rajagopalan, Dale Ducharme, Dimitry Tomilovskiy, Nick Landry; plus Developer Platform Evangelists Larry McDonough and Patrick Mollins.

Not only will they have the formal sessions listed above, there will also be some informal sessions held at the booth throughout the week. You will definitely want to make your way over to the booth or the sessions not only for the information they have to share, but also for the giveaways they have planned. We aren't sure what they have to give out but they always have something fun. If you hit up the booth, be sure to let us know what kind of awesome swag you come away with.

I hope this is gonna help the gaming catalogue on the blackberry playbook. Devs need to understand how great this platform is to have high quality games.

Earlier today I was coming home from school and i was on the metro and found myself to be so bored. I decided to take out my playbook and play some Asphalt 6 and told myself "wow, this platform is incredibly smooth". Long story short next thing i knew i was at my stop. So i guess the playbook did it's job.

COME ON DEVS. GET SOME SICK GAMES ON THE PLAYBOOK

Hi @diruocco,

Ty from RIM here. Asphalt 6 on the PlayBook does rock; though I’ll admit I’m still fighting my way through Dead Space. You’re right that the PlayBook offers a smooth and powerful platform for games, and events like the Game Developers Conference allow us to solidify existing partnerships with game developers and form new friendships with others. The bottom line is that more games and apps are on their way to the PlayBook.

To keep tabs on what we’re up to at this year’s GDC, keep a close eye on our Inside BlackBerry Developer’s Blog: http://bbry.lv/bsbpYQ.

Cheers,

Ty, RIM Social Media Team

I really hope they can make some really good games on the playbook and maybe (not a game)
Even....hopefully....INSTAGRAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
