RIM is slowly learning what they need to provide for their developer community. Back at WES they announced the BlackBerry Developer Conference which will take place on October 21st & 22nd in Santa Clara, California. Now they are reaching out to the developer community to share their hard earned expertise with everybody else.
So RIM has just sent out an email (Call for papers) to all developers asking them to submit a paper on their real world BlackBerry development experiences. You can see what they are looking for at this link.
In their words they are looking for:
Do you have practical, hands-on information that attendees can put to work in their organizations today? If you’re a development manager, software developer, architect or focus on the BlackBerry solution for developing commercial or corporate applications, your know-how and relevant experiences can benefit others.
We’re looking for dynamic, technical presentations for the first-ever BlackBerry Development Conference. Topics include:
- The ins and outs of the BlackBerry® platform
- Leveraging Java® APIs in innovative ways
- Implementing advanced mobile web applications for individuals and businesses
- Working with advanced media types
- Supporting multiple handhelds and OS versions
- Implementing PUSH in your application architecture
- Mobilizing enterprise applications with Java, BlackBerry® MDS Studio or the browser
The cool part is that if you are accepted as a speaker you get some nice perks. (Sadly they don’t pay for your trip )
- One (1) free full conference pass
- Marketing support for your session on the conference web site and in the printed conference guide
- Session survey results after the conference
