BlackBerry Port-A-Thon – Dec 14-15, 2012

Startup Village in association with Blackberry will play host to the upcoming Port-A-Thon event starting tomorrow. Blackberry 10 is the much anticipated OS release from the manufacturer and the company wants to make sure developers have their apps ready for the Blackberry devices from tablets to smartphones.

Port-A-Thon is a 36 hour virtual event where developers can port their own apps in other platforms to Blackberry learn more on how to optimize their apps and get official support from RIM. But wait, there is more. RIM intends to reward developers who port their apps with $100 in cash, free developer alpha device and an opportunity to attend the BB Jam in Amsterdam!

If you are a developer in mobile platforms, then this is a fantastic chance to participate in the new gold rush of Blackberry and get rewarded while doing so!

  • Thanks for bringing this up. Start up village & their app development marketing are not for mainstream developers. Several Kochi based developers many of them known to me attempted contacting Mr.Siju of Startup Village, few months back to discuss BB10 platform & means to train new staff for the same. Many of us had received fresh funds or were looking to invest in new areas. He kept cutting all of our calls and responded with unfriendly text messages. Everyone of us who either own or work for different organisations all over Kerala, eventually decided to invest further in iOS & Android. Internationally customer requirement continues to grow for Android & iOS. App developers care only about long term ROIs and not 100$ peanuts. As always BB chugs on with its trademark behaviour – Too Little Too Late. Sorry Start Village, you took way too long to start yourself up. Everyone has better things to do now.
