Show season is off and running with both the UK and US office supporting multiple shows across the globe. The BlackBerry Developer Conference is touted as THE showcase for the latest innovations and breakthroughs with the BlackBerry Development Platform. Thousands of BlackBerry enthusiasts came together to collaborate with platform experts from the community and to attend sessions, demonstrations, hands-on labs and keynotes — all focused on developing leading mobile applications, across all skill sets.
While day 1 in Amsterdam met us with -12 degree celsius and several inches of snow it was not enough to stop our team from getting the show up and running! The doors opened on Tuesday welcoming around 2,000 developers from all over the world to hear from their new CEO and debut the Blackberry Playbook 2.0 beta software.
The event took place at the Amsterdam RAI which is the largest convention center in Holland. The 2 day event consisted of:
Keynote, 6 breakout rooms with around 50 sessions, 2 x 50 person hands on labs, Aside from supporting each area, F1 handled the entire network which landed 3,100 devices connected to Wi-Fi throughout the venue.
This is a new client for F1 and our first time supporting the event, not only was this a fantastic opportunity it is also an extremely successful show and the biggest BlackBerry DevCon to date.
