Developers, do you want to see your success story published?

Before I joined Research in Motion® (RIM®) as a BlackBerry® Developer Evangelist, I was teaching (Programming & Design) at University of California San Diego and also running an interactive agency called Action Creations.

What I’d like to highlight here is that BlackBerry cares about developers, highlighting good work and taking them by hand in order to help them to succeed. I can tell that because I’ve experienced that and it is awesome, like no other platform does.

Developers, do you want to be evaluated and maybe have your success story told? Ping me on Twitter (@demianborba) and I will point you to the right contact.

In the meantime, I’m glad to see more sold out events for our BlackBerry 10 Jam World Tour. New cities now have the registration open.
