AIR Developer Experience Review

[ Edited ]

You may have already seen this blog post. Today (October 3rd) we have a team assembled here in Mississauga ready to start experiencing what it is to be an AIR developer for BlackBerry 10. We will be wearing the hats of a developer that uses Flash Builder, one that uses FDT, and one that has a game already built using Flash Professional and would like to port it over to BlackBerry 10. We’ll be installing the SDK and experiencing what it is like for everything from:

 

  • Creating a vendor account
  • Getting signing keys
  • Downloading and installing the tools
  • Downloading and installing the SDK
  • Downloading and installing the simulator and what the experience is like using it to test applications

We’ll be logging bugs and annoyances we find along the way all in an effort to make the AIR development experience for BlackBerry 10 better.

 

If you would like to participate please help us by posting bugs in the Developer Issue Tracker, or an easier way to participate is to submit your experience right HERE. You can follow what’s going on here by following me on twitter or @BlackBerryDev, using hashtag #BBDev.

Re: AIR Developer Experience Review

Great idea. It is always a different perspective in using the tools to build something real vs. just buiding tools to fit requirements.

Re: AIR Developer Experience Review

Nice idea guys! Im also looking forward to it. But I suppose you all are experienced on doing all this, no?!

 

When I was setting up my dev environment for AIR + BB10 on Windows 8 Consumer Preview 64bit, I had a small conflict with Java (JRE). I already had Java 1.7 but the Flex SDK only works with Java 1.6. I had to change a few paths on some config files but I didn't take note on what exactly happened.
If you ran into something similar, please add to the knowledge base.

 

Cheers!

Re: AIR Developer Experience Review

@Billsb - No, not everyone on the team we have assembled is experienced in AIR and some don't even have that much of a programming background.

 

Thanks for the information. I will be sure to make a note of installing the proper JRE version.

Kudos to RIM for doing this.  The very last place you want speedbumps and potholes in on the on-ramp.
