Back in June, BlackBerry invited students to participate in a developer event called BlackBerry Jam Camp. Students could apply to the nearest location to them and take part in a two day intense course to help them get started with developing for the BlackBerry platform. The course is limited to 200 students per location and you have to apply to attend.
At the time of the announcement there were only three locations announced. I'm happy to report that another location has been added. It's good to see the LATAM area be included.
BlackBerry Jam Camp locations
- Bandung, Indonesia - July 4th - 5th (Application deadline July 3rd)
- Madrid, Spain - July 8th - 9th (Application deadline July 5th)
- Kitchener/Cambridge - July 16th- 17th
- Buenos Aires, Argentina - July 17th - 18th (New location)
The Camp aims to help students create a Built for BlackBerry app. If you pitch your app to a panel of judges, you can be in for chance to win a trip to a BlackBerry Jam event near you. As well as that you can get yourself a BlackBerry Z10 or Q10 for successfully submitting an app to BlackBerry World and achieving Built for BlackBerry status. More details can be found within the Terms of Conditions on the application form.
If you are interested in attending, apply now. The deadline for Indonesia, Spain and Canada is July 3rd 2013, so get applying now. If you are successfully chosen to attend travel and accommodation will be paid for depending on how far you are from the venue. All details can be found in the Terms and Conditions. Please read them carefully.
