Re: making an application?

I just started programming for Blackberry and i found the samples that come with the JDE really help me get off the ground. check out the samples specially the "helloworld" sample for a basic application.

Re: making an application?

There are a number of threads on the forum that respond to requests from people starting out on BlackBerry devices.  I've cut and pasted a few of the links that were included below:

 

Thanks to tthair:

The official Getting Started link:

http://na.blackberry.com/eng/developers/started/

The Developer Video Library has a growing number of introductory and advanced videos as well:

With thanks to simon_hain:

In addition, I would recommend reviewing the Developer Guide (especially if you programmed in Java before), and the following:

There are load of useful resources here, have a good look round the links:

http://na.blackberry.com/eng/developers/resources/

I particularly recommend some of the videos for the JDE(http://na.blackberry.com/eng/developers/resources/videolibrary.jsp#tab_ddetail_subtab_jde),

 

The other 'path' you may wish too take is the Labs (see Developer Labs link on the left in the Resources page suggested above).  There you will find another HelloWorld that might be useful for you.
