RIM let us know that the BlackBerry Developer Relations and Developer Platform groups will host a series of webcasts focusing on WebWorks development for the BlackBerry Tablet OS. There will be four webcasts starting Feb. 1 :

  • Feb. 1, 2011: Getting Started (2:00 PM EST / 11:00 AM EST)
  • Feb. 3, 2011: My First App (2:00 PM EST / 11:00 AM EST)
  • Feb 8. 2011: BlackBerry PlayBook Integration (2:00 PM EST / 11:00 AM EST)
  • Feb. 10, 2011: User Interface Guidelines and Best Practices (2:00 PM EST / 11:00 AM EST)

Dedicated Q&A periods will follow each webcast.

With the power of WebWorks, developers with experience building in HTML5 and CSS3 can leverage all that knowledge and build for the BlackBerry platform, but there’s an additional layer – the Javascript wrapper (or packager). With the Javascript wrapper, developers can take advantage of native BlackBerry APIs for full, true integration with BlackBerry’s powerful, scalable and reliable platform. More information about the WebWorks Webcast Series can be found on the BlackBerry DevBlog at: http://devblog.blackberry.com/
