Alec Saunders: Why You Should Go to BlackBerry Jam Americas!

Mobile Link
Alec Saunders, VP Developer Relations & Ecosystems Development, sat down to give a chat about why BlackBerry Jam Americas is THE conference for developers, how it ties in to the wildly successful BlackBerry Jam World Tour, and what makes BlackBerry 10 an amazing development platform.

Research In Motion is running a special program to generate excitement around the BlackBerry 10 platform and BlackBerry Jam Americas. We are offering developers the opportunity to participate in a pre-conference super hackathon – this BlackBerry Jam Session will be held on Monday September 24. This is an intense 10 hour coding day where developers can turn their app ideas into reality all in an exciting and supportive environment. BlackBerry technical experts will be on hand to provide guidance, share ideas and support developers as they bring their apps to life. Developers will get a chance to present their apps to a panel of judges for a chance to win incredible prizes.

We want to help you get there……that is why we are getting over 100 people from two cities on buses to San Jose! The experience starts on the bus where a BlackBerry Evangelist team member will get developers pumped for the Jam Session and the conference. The bus ride will give developers a head start by forming teams, mapping out app ideas, asking questions and get tools ready for Monday.

What’s included? You will get a free ride to and from San Jose, snacks, beverages, wifi, power, and a free pass to the three day BlackBerry Jam Americas conference following the Jam Session.

The spaces are limited, so register now.   The three buses will be leaving Los Angeles CA and San Diego CA.   There are a few rules, and we are happy to share them with you.  If you are interested, you can message me pmollins at rim dot com for more information.  I’ll send you the info you need in order to register.   I’ll be live tweeting from the bus, and be working on making sure everyone has a great time!  Follow me on twitter (@party_pat) for more updates and email me if you want information!
