Marty Mallick has long be working on BlackBerrys partnerships with large developers, businesses, and partners for years including BlackBerry World. He is expanding his role to include BlackBerry Developer Relations now that Alec Saunders has moved to a new role in QNX. Hopefully this means that BlackBerry World will finally be in sync with the needs of BlackBerry developers…
Marty laid out his goals for the new organization he has created as a two fold mission:
- Ensure we deliver a high quality, engaging experience for the BlackBerry user base
- Ensure we deliver opportunities to our partners and developer community to engage with the BlackBerry user base to have a successful business on BlackBerry.
I like that he points out how the new 10.2.1 release helped BlackBerry reach more developers with expanded Android support for users. He promises that this new combined department will only strengthen BlackBerry’s relationship with developers.
Best of luck Marty!
