Meu primeiro post em português para os #soudev do Brasil #oportunidade

Olá pessoal, estou escrevendo meu primeiro post em português para convidar VOCÊ, developer brasileiro, a participar do que planejamos ser a melhor experiência de Hackathon no planeta.

Veja esta matéria bem interessante que saiu na TV muito recentemente sobre Hackathons:

Gostou? Então, simplesmente rodamos o mundo atrás dos melhores Hackathons, participamos, vencemos alguns e nos últimos meses planejamos aquele que promete ser o melhor de todos. Analisamos todos os pontos positivos de cada Hackathon e melhoramos cada um deles, desde café+redbull+pizza até diferentes tecnologias como HTML5, C/C++, Adobe AIR e Android/Java, tudo para não tirar você developer da sua zona de conforto.

Nós chamamos estes super hackathons de BlackBerry Jam Sessions, e vamos percorrer 15 cidades da América Latina de Agosto a Novembro.

O que você está esperando? O primeiro destes super hackathons acontece em Recife dia 25 de Agosto, na cobertura do Porto Digital, e ainda temos pouco mais de 10 vagas:

As inscrições são gratuitas e podem ser feitas pelo site

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.

This week I saw that the success story about Action Creations was published by the Customer Success Program team at RIM.

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.
