Daniel Baxter, Senior Developer and Matthew Hately, VP of Strategy from Macadamian were on hand at BlackBerry 10 Jam to speak of custom frameworks they've been building that work with OpenGL and Cascades. They hit the stage to show off one of their apps making use of their custom controls that pulls in content from various resources to aggregate the information and show it off in a useful UI. In this case, they pulled info from Twitter for the NBA playoffs in an attempt to get a concenus on who would win. The results are pretty impressive and as noted, Macadamian will be posting the source code for developerson the BlackBerry Cascades site.

It says "colt" in the upper right side of that guy's computer screen. BB Colt?

The resolution matches the dev alpha so it looks like that does basically confirm what happened to that rumoured device.

Thanks for the good feedback guys. This was a really fun app to create, and we were really impressed with how easy it is to create rich UI in Cascades. I'm really looking forward to seeing the new device and the final BB10 in the Fall. I think RIM is going to surprise everyone.

I am tired of seeing BB10 and cascades demos without a release date. What is a PB developer supposed to do? Develop for OS 2.0.1? Or for 2.1, which appears to be as buggy as an alpha at this time? Or for BB10, which only works in the alpha simulator and will be released for the PlayBook after it is released for smartphones at an undefined date? Should I pick Qt or Cascades for a GUI app? Don't get me wrong, I am a diehard BlackBerry PlayBook fan and developer, but all this is confusing to me. At least give me the Cascades runtime to install on my developer PB, there are apps using Cascades on App World at this time. App World is full of puny apps, I suppose there is a similar situation on the iPhone and Android app markets, but this is not an excuse not to aim high now.
