Hi everyone, I'm Razi Abbasi, a first year Computer Science student.

I'm wanting to learn how to make Native Apps for the PlayBook and BB10 devices Smiley Very Happy

Even though, I have some WebWorks background, I'm wanting to learn something new, that's why I'm choosing to go with Native Development


Hopefully this will be easy to understand.

Nice to be a part of this community, and looking forward to meeting everyone here. Smiley Happy

Re: Hello!

Look at the examples from the blackbery developement site and use the forum to as I find books gets outdated quickly as API changes all the time.

Re: Hello!

The best thing of developing on BlackBerry is, we have a great community and also the great sample projects on Github!
Many developers came to me and asked some questions.. .but they forgot to check the sample code provided via BlackBerry...

If they did, they will notice that BlackBerry really did a lot for developers. Smiley Happy
