As a web developer I have been keeping a close eye on RIM’s BlackBerry WebWorks platform. When it first launched it seemed like RIM was just trying to cash in on the “Widget” craze without really investing time and effort into the platform for the smartphone. That feeling is going away since the PlayBook showed that WebWorks will be the main platform for cross tablet/smartphone development for BlackBerry. The WebWorks team has been doing an awesome job of embracing open source with some solid developments like allowing code contributions.
These are key developments for the WebWorks platform. Check out the full list at the links below:
Anybody else loving the fact that RIM has an active Github project?
