Sencha Touch on BlackBerry 10 Bootcamp: Half-Day

Tuesday, July 16, 2013 — 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

BlackBerry 10 is a great platform for HTML5 and Sencha Touch apps, and getting your app ported gets you access to a rapidly growing BlackBerry 10 market. Join some of BlackBerry’s top experts for this pre-conference developer bootcamp, where we will provide a technical introduction to the BlackBerry 10 development process and cover how to use Sencha Touch to create a BlackBerry 10 app.
