Meet the PlayBook events heading to Europe

If you happen to live in the EMEA and are a developer interested in going hands-on with the BlackBerry PlayBook all while learning a thing or two about porting your apps using Adobe tools, then RIM is looking for you. In fact, they're coming to you:

We are delighted to announce our exclusive BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet developer and business seminar series in association with Adobe®, which we’ll be taking on the road across the EMEA region. At our exclusive – and free! – half-day event, you’ll get hands-on access to our new tablet and find out everything you need to know about developing a multi-screen strategy for a client, converting your existing Adobe® Flex or Adobe® AIR® apps, or turning your ideas into successful, revenue-generating reality.

The event comprises two parallel sessions, one business-focused and one technology-focused, and technical teams from Research In Motion® and Adobe will also be available to answer your questions.

24th May – Johannesburg

26th May – Dubai

2nd June – Madrid

14th June – Milan

You'll want to make sure you sign up early as spots are going to be limited but, it's a great oppurtunity for those in the EMEA region. Plus, as noted by RIM there will be more cities added to the list at a later time, so if you can't make out to any of the currently listed -- chances are you may be able to make it to another later on.


Would be good if they did one in the UK (somewhere down south would be even better ;p, maybe south west ;p)


Because, Obviously Jo-berg is in "Europe"... ;P


I hope someone will record and post it on youtube


Dubai and Johannesburg is clearly not Europe..


Although the title says Europe, the article mentions EMEA (Europe, Middle East & Africa)

most international corporates like to club this region into one with their marketing / sales activities.


There is a great opportunity for Flash developers on the Playbook. I got my first one at app world a couple of days ago and it is selling now.
