So taking a consistent feature or function and showing how to implement it across platforms?

@Melleb shouldn't be something that has to be shown in multiple platforms.
I think he means something like "Wicked Cool BB Scripts" ... name from one of my favorite coding books Wicked Cool Ruby Scripts http://bit.ly/QSv3po
It has really small code snippets that do really cool things. Ranging from beginner to advanced. Some examples... Rock Paper Scissor, Mortgage Calculator, Hang Man Game.
I love the idea of having code snippets like that surrounded by a 2-5 minute video or written explanation. Sometimes you see a code snippet and then get a hundreds of other ideas. Like if you see a mortgage calculator your like... well if I just change this and that... well then now it's a tip calculator... and if I add this it can factor in tax.
Or if you see a rock, paper, scissor game you might think well why not add in several more possibilities like dynamite or nuclear bomb.

Ahh, ok, I see what you mean. Thanks.

@Melanie: On the devblog there was an article publish in the past days about WebWorks and Extensions from native. As mentioned in my last post it would be good to have a little bit more like a video to get started with those extensions to WebWorks.

I had a discussion on Friday about precisely that. (And, more broadly, re. content when SDKs are updated, etc.)

Nice to know. Hope to see it soon.
Off topic, but: It would also be interesting to know which updates/changes were made within the latest BB10 version 10.0.6.545 and also for the SDKs when they are release. Right now there isn't anything about it here for BB10 Dev Alpha OS and the WebWorks SDK. Couldn't find it so far, any URLs you can provide? THX

I inquired internally, and there aren't release notes, unfortunately.

So nothing new in the BB10 OS or for the SDK so far. That's another point for your channel. If we have a new release with new functionality in OS or any SDK it would be really good to have a starting point for developers by means of an example code snippet video, next to the documentations. In that way new feature may be used faster in our development, new apps may be faster in app world and so on, isn't it?
