2009 BlackBerry Developers Conference!

The second annual BlackBerry Developer Conference is set to be held on November 9-11th in San Francisco, CA. The time has come for RIM to put out their call for papers seeking out those who are interested in being speakers at the event and offering your insight as a mobile application developer. RIM has placed alot of focus lately on the developer aspect of their services so this will be the developers' chance to shine.

Below is an outline of what RIM is seeking:

  • Development managers
  • Software developers
  • Architects
  • Testing & QA managers

Numerous amounts of sessions will be held as well, such as the following:

  • Developing with the latest tools (BlackBerry JDE Plug-in for Eclipse, BlackBerry Plug-in for Microsoft Visual Studio .NET)
  • Creating compelling BlackBerry Widgets
  • Creating unique and powerful BlackBerry web-based applications for individuals or businesses
  • Leveraging BlackBerry Internet Service push technology in your application architecture
  • Developing and distributing your applications through BlackBerry App World
  • New techniques for improving developer efficiency including build environments, testing environments and tools
  • Using the latest Java APIs for BlackBerry to create addictive applications
  • Lessons learned working with multimedia, WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth technologies
You can read the full details via RIM's Developer Conference page and submit your entries today. Last year's event was well run and everybody I spoke to in attendance found the conference to be well worth attending (not to mention everybody there got a free BlackBerry!). If you're a BlackBerry Developer, be sure to sign up now for updates and register for the event when the time comes! I hope to see you in San Fran!!!
