Research In Motion (RIM), the maker of BlackBerry smartphones, will stage a BlackBerry 10 Mini Jam developer event on Tuesday 14 August in Lagos.

The BlackBerry 10 Mini Jam will provide Nigerian developers with the opportunity to learn more about the unique capabilities of BlackBerry 10. The full-day schedule will provide insight into the BlackBerry 10 experience, architecture and tools that can help Nigerian developers be among the first from around the world who are creating apps for the new platform.

The event is being held at the CcHub lab as part of an agreement with RIM to support the BlackBerry developer community in Nigeria.  

The Regional Director for East, West and Central Africa at RIM, Waldi Wepener, said: “There is high demand among developers to learn more about the tools for creating local services and apps on the BlackBerry platform, as well as a strong desire to reach the millions of BlackBerry customers around the world. By partnering locally with the CcHub, we aim to share resources and knowledge to create even more opportunity for Nigerian developers and to help create more jobs.”
