If you attended BlackBerry 10 Jam in Orlando earlier this month (like I did), you are probably still buzzing with excitement over the BlackBerry 10 platform and eagerly awaiting to hear (and see) more info. I can vouch for the fact that the excitement and enthusiasm from developers at BB10 Jam was indeed palpable, and RIM wants to keep the level of excitement high as the official launch of BlackBerry 10 draws closer.
So, in preparation for an upcoming OS update for the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha device that developers attending BB10 Jam received, RIM needs your feedback, because afterall, the tools released at BB10 Jam were created for developers and developers only. Developers are the ones using the tools, so feedback from said developers is undoubtedly critical.
So, how can you help?? Keep reading...
RIM wants your feedback pertaining to two key topics:
1. RIM wants to hear your developer story! Tell RIM...
- your thoughts on the BlackBerry 10 developer tools
- what applications you are working on
- anything else you feel the need to tell them regarding your experiences developing for the upcoming BlackBerry 10 platform.
2. RIM wants your feedback to be logged using the issue tracker on the BlackBerry developer website.
The issue tracker is one of the tools RIM uses to determine what issues need to be addressed and when an update is needed. RIM relies on the feedback from this tool to help facilitate getting updates to market sooner rather than later.
IMPORTANT:For the issue tracker, devs should submit issues against the BlackBerry 10 project (BBTEN)
The issue tracker is located at: http://us.blackberry.com/developers/resources/issuetracker/
The issue tracker user guide is located at: http://us.blackberry.com/developers/resources/issuetracker/userguide.jsp
Get excited because the first OS update for the Dev Alpha is almost here! If there is a request or bug that you want to be addressed, make sure you tell RIM using the methods outlined above before the update is issued!
