BlackBerry DevCon Europe in Amsterdam starts on February 7th but ddluk let us know that there is a great hackathon before the event. They are organizing a Hackathon the day before DevCon Europe on “Porting HP webOS applications to BlackBerry WebWorks platform” now that HP has open sourced Enyo. The event is hosted by BlackBerry and will have Markus Leutwyler from HP Developer Relations and Ken Wallis from BlackBerry WebWorks team. Pretty sweet deal right especially for some great guidance from both RIM and HP. The Hackathon is related to ddluk’s “COM365: Porting WebOS to WebWorks” session at DevCon Europe.
Registration is free and accepted developers will receive a FREE BlackBerry 7 device and are eligible for a FREE pass plus accommodations for themselves at the sold out DevCon Europe where they will receive a FREE BlackBerry PlayBook along with other attendees!
Pretty sweet deal right? If you are a former webOS developer or know one definitely check out this EventBrite registration and sign up since places are limited!!! Kudos to RIM for really reaching out to web developers.
