BlackBerry at GDC

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.
