Collaborate on Awesome: Start an Official BlackBerry Developer Group in Your Area!

If you are a BlackBerry developer and know other developers and or designers in your area, you should definitely consider starting an official developer group. Developer groups allow developers to collaborate, network, and create mobile experiences with other developers and designers in their area. As we all know, the life of a coder can get lonely at times if you get lost in your code and forget about the outside world*, so why not reach out in your local area and find some other devs…

Current State of BlackBerry 10 Television Marketing

Ever since seeing the 2013 Super Bowl ad for the BlackBerry Z10, I have been unimpressed with BlackBerry's television marketing strategy for the new BlackBerry 10 devices. As the months have passed, my feelings for the strategy have changed, and have solidified into utter disdain. About Current Ads The television commercials that are currently running here in the US are few and far between--and mediocre at best. The TV spots aren't terrible, but I am of the opinion that they are ineffective for a number…

Some Images, Videos, Etc. from the BlackBerry Z10

I spent some time this evening poking around the OS files from the latest BlackBerry 10 OS, and it turns out that there's a lot of cool images and some neat videos in there; even though the OS was supposed to be for the Dev Alpha, there's definitely some Z10 stuff in there, for example the above tutorial video. Here's some icons and images that I thought were particularly interesting, as well as the rest of the videos that were included: [gallery link="file" columns="4" orderby="title"] Links…

RIM is now rebranded as BlackBerry. One Product, one company. Thorsten Heins thanks Dan Dodge, Mike Lazardis, Jim Basille for getting the company to this direction and point.

Download links for all PlayBook and Dev Alpha OSes

For the most current version of this list, head to: BB10 OSes PlayBook OSes I finally got around to uploading all the PlayBook, PlayBook 4G, and Dev Alpha OSes to the cloud. They were all uploaded to the new Mega, because all the other free file storage sites either had too low of a file upload size or deleted your shared files after x days. Mega doesn't seem to do either of those, although it does seem to deny you the ability to download anything…

Learning BB10 Cascades... After HelloWorld

In this editorial posting I'd like to share my experiences/recommendations in BB10 Cascades app developing after completing the "HelloWorld" example. I want to share this because I originally wanted to get into mobile app developing years ago but always got stuck after HelloWorld and didn't really know where to go next.
