A bunch of bitchin’, badass, BlackBerry administrators (I tried to get in as many B’s as I could… 🙂 ) have put their collective genius minds together to come up with a solution to help other admins and to share ideas throughout their community.
The forums, in my opinion, definitely serve the majority of the community, but these guys and girls have basically taken the BES part of a forum and focused their work on that. From their press room:
“After spending many years with an active role in the various online BlackBerry communities and forums, we have noticed that most have become diluted with tackling the general subject of ‘BlackBerry’ with not enough emphasis on the Enterprise customers and administrators.
In lieu of this lack of focus, several well-known veterans within the collective online BlackBerry community have decided to create a new website aimed solely at the BlackBerry Enterprise solution, as well as those like us who hunger for a more technical discussion and a place where we can bounce ideas or simply request help. This new community focuses on the gearheads that make the solution work – the BlackBerry administrators and engineers, the BlackBerry solution architects, and the BlackBerry technical consultants – all in one place with a kickass name that only a geek could love!
After a couple months of being online in a pre-launch capacity, we are very pleased and excited to announce the public launch of Port 3101, where familiar faces and knowledgeable minds will always be guaranteed. We look forward to making this website THE one-stop destination for your BlackBerry server needs.”
It is up and running as of today, so to visit their site, just go to www.port3101.org to check it out for yourselves.
