Hello World,

Yes, I went there! As any developer knows, ‘Hello World’ this is the best way to start off anything new. Oh, and speaking of new… I am pleased to officially be writing for OpenSourceBB.com! I am very excited about this opportunity and anxious to start bringing you guys some awesome news and reviews. I hope that you welcome me to the community with open arms!

In my heart I’m a physical QWERTY keyboard user, but the virtual keyboard on the Z10 is just so incredible

Now for a little background information about me… My name is Alex and I am very passionate about BlackBerry. I am currently working as a Website Designer and Application Developer for the BB10 platform. The first smartphone I ever owned was the BlackBerry Bold 9650 (purchased the day it came out) and I promptly moved up to the the Bold 9930 the day it was available for Verizon Wireless customers. As you can probably tell, I’m more of a physical QWERTY kind of guy, but I have been using the Z10 ever since I was able to get my hands on it. I was fortunate enough to receive Developer Alpha B and C devices from BlackBerry and the truth is… I have not totally made up my mind as to which one I prefer just yet. In my heart I’m a physical QWERTY keyboard user, but the virtual keyboard on the Z10 is just so incredible, so stay tuned!

You have my word that I will write articles from a non-bias standpoint

So as you can see – I eat, sleep, and live BlackBerry. I am both invested in them mentally, as well as monetarily (yes, I am a shareholder). Having put my own money down to back them up, I view BlackBerry from more of an objective and critical standpoint. I could sit here and ramble on about how BlackBerry is the next best thing since sliced bread, and I want to, but I know that BlackBerry is going through difficult times, and it’s a long slow road back to the top. You have my word that I will write articles from a non-bias standpoint as, quite frankly, more technology sites should. Just know that I am a BlackBerry user and enthusiast, and that will never change.

I just got back home from BlackBerry Live in Orlando on Saturday and have a lot to share from it, so stay tuned!

Thanks everyone, glad to be here!
