RIM Invites UI Designers to “Stump the BlackBerry Devs”

Stump Cascades Devs

I am really enjoying the new lines of communication RIM has opened up to their developer community. Derek Konigsberg, a long time BlackBerry developer and a friend, inspired RIM’s developer relations team to try a new idea. Its called Stump the BlackBerry Devs and encourages BlackBerry UI designers to submit mock ups or designs that would be difficult to implement using the BlackBerry 10 Cascades UI framework. The Cascades UI development team will try to implement that mock up using Cascades using no hardcoded values.

You simply have to submit an image of your mock-up to the @BlackBerryDev Twitter account using the hashtag #StumpTheBlackBerryDevs to be part of it before August 31st. RIM will then choose the three most difficult and creative submissions in September and implement them using the R8 SDK beta release that is coming soon. RIM will then reveal the designs during BlackBerry Jam Americas during a session on the Unconference Day.

Check out the details here on the DevBlog and let us know if you submit a design!

  1. Absolutely love what BlackBerry is doing with/for devs.
    Nobody else is putting so much into dev relationships, tools, creativity, profitability…
    I’m not a dev, but if I ever get a good idea for an app, I feel that even I could make a good one for BB X.
    Consider that exposure on Android is virtually impossible, most of the apps on itunes are unseen, both platforms are more difficult to develop for (from my research ), and the fact that BB users love their apps, don’t mind paying a buck or two for a good one (rather than having ad supported ‘free’ ones running in the background killing battery life and privacy ), and the fact that with BBM sharing and the good, old BlackBerry Nation grapevine, word gets around.
    Devs on BB X at launch are looking at free money!
    Get on board my friends…we are thirsty!
