I and a few others have been working on some tutorials designed to bootstrap new BlackBerry Developers (rather than new Java developers) into BlackBerry java. Associated with this Post you should find a zip file that contains the first ten of these. These cover things like:
How to design User Interfaces that work across multiple devices
The objective is that after reviewing these tutorials, the reader will know enough to create an application that works like a proper BB application and can display screens, retain configuration data, send support emails (including the application log) and so on.
The plan is that this is just Part 1, Part 2 will take the Part 1 project and extend it into something that looks like a real Application, And then in Part 3 we will extend this with the trickier things, like Networking, Location, BBM integration, App World integration and more.
Anyway, if you have a second or two please have a look at these and let me know what you think. If you are a new BlackBerry developer, even better!
But as I'm on holiday for the next two weeks, don't expect responses from me for a while!
Thanks for reading and have fun.
