The full-day event is dedicated to providing the developer community with insights on the BlackBerry 10 platform, including its strengths, the vision for the platform and how developers can make apps that stand out to app-hungry users.”

“This event gives us a great opportunity to engage directly with BlackBerry developers here in South Africa,” said Rui Brites, Product Director for Africa, at BlackBerry-maker Research In Motion (RIM). “We look forward to introducing South African developers to BlackBerry 10 and helping them bring the best apps to customers on the BlackBerry 10 platform.”
