Hello from the UK

Hey Everyone,


It's great to be a part of these forums and I look forward to learning alot from you all. I am a young individual from the UK who is very new to all of this Blackberry and Smartphone Development so still have alot to learn and research.


If you have any wise words of wisdom or would like to share any experiences with me etc, please do post them up or send me a PM to add me on skype or AIM. I'm always looking to meet new people!


Thank you for any of your help in advance, I will try not to be too much of a hassle Smiley Wink
