The BlackBerry 10 WebWorks SDK 2.1 went gold a short while ago and New Toronto Group is set to deliver a completely new version of the training course that highlights just how simple and easy it has become to build mobile applications for BlackBerry 10 using HTML5 technologies!
You're reading this because something in the headline or the summary caught your attention. Was it "build mobile applications"? BlackBerry? HTML5? Maybe all of the above?
Regardless, I'm glad you're here and I'm excited to announce that we're about to wrap up an entirely new version of the training course whose first version was born back in the BlackBerry PlayBook days. And, boy, has a lot changed. Without going too deep into all of the details, let me summarize by saying this:
We've gone from two days to one day for this class.
The scope of this class is a little lighter than the previous version but the shorter duration can largely be attributed to the fact that, now that the tools are so much simpler to install and configure, we spend much less time getting ready to code and more time writing code and building apps. I'd invite you to take a look at the new outline for more information.
What's new or different in this version?
If you've already got some experience as a BlackBerry developer, here's an short list of what's new.
- The WebWorks SDK web tool replaces Ripple
- Apache Cordova comes front and centre. If you're a Cordova developer, you'll see just how easy it is to add support for BlackBerry 10 to your application.
- The SDK and the simulator are available for Linux. That's right! Linux support is finally here!
Keep an eye on this series as I go into a little more depth on some of the technical topics that are covered in the course. If time is tight and you want to dive into all the details immediately, you can register for one of our public or onsite classes today. You'll find this class in the Mobile App Dev Courses section.
