My employer has asked if going to the Oct Dev conference in Santa Clara would be of much use to me
Background - we do embedded software for monitoring of various things including phone calls. I'm experienced in Windows, Symbian (C++/Python), Canon, Ricoh etc, so not unfamilar with embedded devices. Never worked with a blackberry though.
I'm tempted to say no need - that I can just as much utility by working with the dev kits, documentation and online support forums like this one. In the past I've been to 2 - 3 day courses and not found them all that usefull.
Would this seem a fair assesment or would I really be missing info I can't glean online?
Thanks - Lindsay

I'm going (current economic climate willing....) and expect to get these things out f it:
a) A jump start on some aspects of the development environment that I'm not so familiar with
b) Detailed information on some areas of the API that I need help with
c) Some overview details on areas that my company is interested in
d) The ability to get up close and personnel to a couple of Rim people.
Now (a) is obviously applicable to you, but, since you have never worked on the BlackBerry, I'm not sure any of the other reasons are applicable. I don't see this a training course, I see this as retraining or refining course.
Hope this helps.
