Last week, we saw the Gold SDK tools drop for developers, allowing them to finalise their apps ready for the launch of BlackBerry 10. While many developers have probably made use of the SDKs already, perhaps there are others who want to know more. So, RIM are holding two webcasts to go through the SDK tools for both Native and WebWorks for BlackBerry 10.

Both webcasts will take place tomorrow, Tuesday, 18th December, 2012, so get registering now if you want to take part.

I'm curious to hear about that Gamepad support, do any other OS support that?


Will these be recorded for later viewing?

Did anyone who registered actually get details on how to "attend" the webinar? I got a calendar invitation, but no connection details. Where am I supposed to look?

Used to receive an email with the link, not sure why those stopped. Now I just go from the Developer events site and click through there. I find that it's best click through 10 mins before the event starts as sometimes before that it will just send to the bit where you register again.

Here's the link
