We are starting series of articles where we’ll try to show you why BlackBerry is “the” platform for your application. Platform choice, ease of development, and global opportunity are just some of the reasons to bring your app to BlackBerry.
Why BlackBerry events
BlackBerry Developer Group Balkan invites you to Why BlackBerry events for carriers – one to two hour events dedicated to providing you with insights on the BlackBerry® 10 platform, how and why Blackberry is “the” device and what BIS (BlackBerry Internet Server) and BES (BlackBerry Enterprise Server) are offering to your customers. There are no registration fees but you need to be employed by a carrier or company who is partnered by one of the carriers.

BlackBerry is an open platform that provides a variety of development languages and runtimes designed to fit your skills. Your choice of development language will be based on a combination of familiarity, pre-existing codebase, and the target devices you’re looking to serve.
Each application approach (Android™, Adobe® AIR®, HTML5/WebWorks, Native C/C++) is tailored for the developer communities supporting these environments.
Whether you are looking to create a tailored BlackBerry experience using Native/Webworks/Java or wanting to take your application code base cross platform with HTML5/Android/Adobe AIR, there’s a solution for you.
BlackBerry offers a wide range of programs to foster collaboration and communication within the BlackBerry Developer Community
And of course BlackBerry Developer Groups all around the world.
