BlackBerry Developer Blog Open
RIM announced today that they have officially opened their doors, or servers rather, to the BlackBerry developer's community with a new technical blog. The first post in the blog goes to Mike Kirkup, Director of Developer Relations at RIM. He notes in his post that, "The BlackBerry Developer’s Blog will be a key component to the overall BlackBerry® Developer Zone experience." The intention of the blog is to assist developers, both novices and the experienced, in the creation of applications for the BlackBerry platform. He goes on further to say that the experience of the blog will cover 3 distinct areas:
* Technical Discussion and Insights – Including best practices for BlackBerry development, code snippets, and general technical information on how to make applications users will come back to time and again.
* Market Insight – Discussions of trends and opportunities in mobile development and mobile applications that RIM sees from breathing the mobile industry every single day.
* Developer Engagement – We have substantial plans to get more engaged with our regional and local developer communities all around the world, from Australia to Argentina and everywhere in-between. We will be using the BlackBerry Developer’s Blog to communicate events in your region and opportunities to meet other BlackBerry developers.
While the blog is intended for developers to communicate and share ideas, being that it's hosted by RIM, I'm sure we can expect interaction from their own developers and already the blog includes technical information on location based services and the BlackBerry Web Development Tools. This should be a great resource for anyone currently in the mobile app development field or anyone looking to get into it. You can find the blog here.
This should prove to be a tremendous help to those developing Apps. Now they can get almost instant help and advice among other things. Good News.
