Save the Dates: BlackBerry Webworks Webcasts for the Tablet OS


playbook hands on

The Developer Rations and Developer Platform groups will host a series of webcasts focusing on WebWorks development for the BlackBerry Tablet OS. There will be four webcasts starting Feb. 1, so mark your calendars. It’s interesting to also note that RIM hasn’t given a name to the tablet OS yet. Will it just be called the QNX OS? Hit up the webcasts and get started on an app to win yourself a free PlayBook.

Feb. 1, 2011: Getting Started (2:00 PM EST / 11:00 AM EST)
Feb. 3, 2011: My First App (2:00 PM EST / 11:00 AM EST)
Feb 8. 2011: BlackBerry PlayBook Integration (2:00 PM EST / 11:00 AM EST)
Feb. 10, 2011: User Interface Guidelines and Best Practices (2:00 PM EST / 11:00 AM EST)

Dedicated Q&A periods will follow each webcast.

Here is what RIM has to say about the WebWorks platform:

With the power of WebWorks, developers with experience building in HTML5 and CSS3 can leverage all that knowledge and build for the BlackBerry platform, but there’s an additional layer – the Javascript wrapper (or packager). With the Javascript wrapper, developers can take advantage of native BlackBerry APIs for full, true integration with BlackBerry’s powerful, scalable and reliable platform.

Stay tuned for more info.
