The New BlackBerry 10 & Opportunities for Developers @ the Adobe Developer Group in San Diego, California

On March 4th, I had the honor to get back to San Diego and show the Adobe Developer Group San Diego members what the new BlackBerry 10 really is. In the beginning I asked: “Who thinks BlackBerry can be competitive and have a shot in today’s mobile scenario?” Only 2 or 3 hands up. At the end of the presentation, after showing the official BlackBerry 10 demo, with its keyboard, hub, peek, flow and lots of innovative/unique features, I asked the same question and…

…got pretty much all the hands in the air! BlackBerry 10 rocks!!

Besides the demo, the audience saw how to work with HTML5 in order to develop for BlackBerry 10, including Web Inspector and Live Refresh. They also had the chance to play with the new BlackBerry Z10 (black and white), with our BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha C and our BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha B.

These are the slides from the presentation:

And to win tons of giveaways, developers had to play “Rock-paper-scissors”, led by James Polanco, with a simple rule: “the last person standing wins”. Winners took home PlayBook tablets, jackets, backpacks and a lot of BlackBerry SWAG.

Thank you San Diego developers, can’t wait to get back.

Count on us!! Hope to see you soon.
