Hey guys how are you
I'm planning to start developing on blackberry 10.
but the problem is i don't know which language shall i go with.. i'm planning to build native apps only for blackberry.. and also i'm not into core things.. just wanna make simple apps that works and function well
so i'm into cascades more than core.
so any guidance here? and thanks all i would be really grateful

Thanks again for the awesome help
Gonna check some sample apps and try to figure it out
I saw on amazon books about coding c++ using qt.. is it necessary for me to learn how to write c++ using qt to build codes on qml? or is qml can only be build using c++? which do you see fit more and (simpler) to learn having in mind that i have a basic background on c++ so im really familiar with it.. and thanks again for the awesome help hope you the best

I suggest you start here, as one of the platforms may be something you are more familiar with;

I'd actually recommend taking a look at the following video giving you a brief overview of Cascades:
You can also check out a quick overview of some of the more useful samples available:

Thanks guys for this awesome help.. Now i'm even more excited to learn from the support i found from you guys thanks alot
i've sat my mind on Qt.. i will start to learn it soon but i have two diffrent kind of learning rescourses.. there is a book that teaches QT4.. and there is a book that about developing GUI in c++ using qt library.. which one guys shall i go with? and all i want to make is really simple apps that work and function well. and thanks again for the help guys

Do you mean Qt or Cascades? Cascades sits on top of Qt.
By all means read those books but most of the objects described within you probably won't use and some things cascades does a lot better or different.
My suggestion is to work through the online tutorials and documentation, this one I thought was particularly useful when I first started out...

I agree with Simon, but I'd like to add one thing... you do NOT need ANY QML to use Cascades/Qt classes, it can all be done from C++ alone. I have recently rewritten my multiFEED app from the ground up to use Cascades classes almost exclusively from C++. Only two pages with very complicated layouts are still defined with QML, but all the actual functionality in them has also been moved to C++.
welcome to the support forums.
Qt is a library for c++, but one that replaces most core functionality (and makes it easier, imo).
you can start with the Momentics project wizard, it will create a basic application for you.
developer.blackberry.com should have all the information you need, and a lot of sample projects that you can try and depart from to something on your own.
For the UI you can use the (mostly) wysiwyg editor for QML where you can preview your changes instantly.
This should keep you busy for some time, and for more advanced questions you can come back here.
and have fun developing for bb10!
