Bring your web apps to the BlackBerry platform at Web Directions Code
A platform we've been excited about for some time, BlackBerry 10, makes web technologies first class citizens for app development, so, if you've already got mobile friendly or optimised content or apps, it makes sense to consider spending that little bit of extra effort to turn it into a native BlackBerry App.
To give you just a little more incentive to explore web technologies and BlackBerry, BlackBerry are holding a competition, with top entrants showcased at Web Directions Code, and eligible for some pretty awesome prizes, including a trip to BlackBerry Jam Asia later this year.
And, to give you a head start, Chris Saunders from BlackBerry will be hosting a portathon at Web Directions secret lair in Sydney, from 2pm to 5pm, Friday April 26th. Just bring your laptop, and code, and have Chris on hand to help you get up to speed, and even complete your porting job, as well as test on some real live Blackberry 10 devices, before winding up the week with a beer. Then head around to #Fridayat4 to catch up with many more from the Sydney web community.
It's free, but places are limited, so sign up now, and get in the running for a trip to South East Asia later this year for BlackBerry Jam Asia (including flights, accomodation, and spending money!), cash prizes, and brand new BlackBerry Z10 devices.
