We took a break from product demos at BlackBerry Live 2013 to chat with Damian Montero, who not only had a hell of a story to tell about his personal journey through mobile development, but was also sporting the best headwear at the show by far.

We got to check out his first smartphone, his busted-up limited edition BlackBerry Z10, and get his general impressions of working on BlackBerry, Damian's a great example of an enthusiastic developer that's getting a ton of support direct from BlackBerry.

Developers, how do your  experiences with BlackBerry line up with Damian's? Be sure to keep an eye on CrackBerry Live - who knows who we'll have on the livestream next?
