Research in Motion is holding a series of enterprise developer workshops for its forthcoming BlackBerry 10 platform.
The London leg of the BlackBerry 10 Jam World Tour - Enterprise Edition will take place at the Mermaid Conference Centre in the City of London tomorrow (23 October). A limited number of BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha devices will be available. Developers will be shown how to create apps that can access and use protected business information within their companies. These include how to give workers access to company intranets, workflow systems, databases and other confidential information. Developers will also be shown a range of tools for the OS, such as HTML5 with BlackBerry WebWorks and the BlackBerry Native Development Kit with BlackBerry Cascades.
Derek Pepe, vice-president for enterprise partnerships at RIM, said: 'We’re committed to ensuring our customers have enterprise application solutions that allow their organizations to achieve the productivity potential offered by mobility today, and tomorrow. BlackBerry is designed to provide a behind-the-firewall solution that empowers businesses and government agencies to solve issues with access to essential data in real time. Developers can leverage common development tools to easily create mobile applications without having to worry about building and testing a security and connectivity layer.'
Research in Motion is holding 11 workshops worldwide during the coming weeks, in locations including Amsterdam, Frankfurt, New York and Madrid. BlackBerry's forthcoming BB10 operating system is due to be launched during the first quarter of next year.
