BlackBerry 10 Mini Jam Lagos In Photos
Over seventy mobile developers from the Nigerian developer community attended the BlackBerry 10 Mini Jam developer event in Lagos yesterday at the CcHub in Sabo, Yaba. The event was held to create awareness among the developer community in preparation for the forthcoming BlackBerry 10 OS.
RIM has held BlackBerry 10 developer events in cities across North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific and now in Africa. “It was fantastic to see the level of excitement among developers for the BlackBerry 10 platform,” said Waldi Wepener, Regional Director for East, West and Central Africa at BlackBerry-maker Research In Motion.
In a lightning pitch competition, the BlackBerry application “Make We Bet” was chosen by the attendees as the most innovative application, winning a BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha prototype for mobile development, and a BlackBerry Playbook. BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha prototypes were also given to runners-up in the lightning pitch competition as well as two other attendees who were live tweeting the event.

Femi Longe, Co-founder Co-creation Hub says ”We were impressed after seeing what BlackBerry 10 has to offer, and we are excited by an even closer look at the platform and its capabilities at the BlackBerry 10 Mini Jam sessions in Lagos.”
