Now that RIM has formally announced that they will be having a DevCon in Europe they seem to be making a bigger push to engage developers there and throughout the EMEA. The latest effort in that vein is the announcement of four “Meet the PlayBook” events scattered around the region. I am not sure what made RIM choose these cities but I am hoping it is based on interest. Here are the event dates and locations:
Each of the events is running a parallel business and technology track on the same day so there should be something for everybody. Here is how RIM describes it:
We are delighted to announce our exclusive BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet developer and business seminar series in association with Adobe®, which we’ll be taking on the road across the EMEA region. At our exclusive – and free! – half-day event, you’ll get hands-on access to our new tablet and find out everything you need to know about developing a multi-screen strategy for a client, converting your existing Adobe® Flex or Adobe® AIR® apps, or turning your ideas into successful, revenue-generating reality.
