Research In Motion (RIM) has announced BlackBerry DevCon Asia, scheduled to take place at the Bali International Convention Centre in Bali, Indonesia on 13th-14th January 2011.

Attendees will have the opportunity to join over 40 keynote, breakout and hands-on sessions that will showcase how developers can best use a range of tools and services to create innovative and commercially successful apps on the BlackBerry platform.

Confirmed keynote speakers include:
• Gregory Wade - Managing Director, Southeast Asia
• Tyler Lessard - Vice President, Global Alliances and Developer Relations
• Mike Kirkup - Director, Developer Relations
• Chris Smith - Senior Director, BlackBerry Developer Platform

Attendees will hear from a host of RIM technical experts as well as a variety of developers who are already creating apps for BlackBerry smartphones.

Gregory Wade, Managing Director of RIM, Southeast Asia commented: “There’s never been a better time for developers to create apps for the BlackBerry platform - not only is the user base thriving, but developers are being provided with a platform and tools that can foster truly powerful apps that customers will love. With the upcoming launch of the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, DevCon Asia serves as a great opportunity for developers to learn more about how they can grow their businesses by building apps for the BlackBerry platform.”

Attendees at BlackBerry DevCon Asia will gain insight into developing apps for the new BlackBerry PlayBook and learn about using the BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK for Adobe AIR as well as Adobe Flash Builder. There will be opportunities to see how new web-based tools such as BlackBerry WebWorks can make it easy to get started creating rich, value-added apps across the BlackBerry smartphone and tablet lines.

Attendees will also find out about new commercial services such as the BlackBerry Payment Service, and get real world tips on how to market apps and best utilise BlackBerry App World.

Tyler Lessard, Vice President of Global Alliances and Developer Relations added: “The range and momentum of BlackBerry developer initiatives has certainly grown around the world since our first developer conference in Silicon Valley two years ago. We are very pleased to be hosting the first pan-Asian BlackBerry DevCon and continuing to increase the amount of local information, tools and resources available for our developers in Asia.”
