Our community includes consumer and enterprise app developers, hobbyists, students, and designers who have a diverse set of development skills including Java, C/C++, Qt, Adobe AIR, and web-based languages.

BlackBerry Developer Groups

Developer Groups are local, community-led and provide developers with shared learning interests with the opportunity to network and get support. These groups receive regular platform and program updates from BlackBerry, and have access to exclusive discounts, developer events, and conferences.

  • Platform and program updates from BlackBerry on a regular basis
  • Discounts on BlackBerry Certification Program exams for developers
  • Discounts for the BlackBerry Developer Conference

Note: these groups are for BlackBerry developers only. Group Managers will be keeping group membership and meetings focused on application development and distribution for the BlackBerry Application Platform.
