BlackBerry 10 is known to be one of the most open platforms out there right now. The Native SDK is available for all three operating systems, including GNU/Linux. I’m one of the GNU/Linux fans; Linux had introduced me to the world of UNIX and POSIX. Because QNX is POSIX-compliant, the development tools play well with the Linux environment.
I heard a few of Developers from BBM, and from forum, that they are sometimes not able to access the simulator from the Native SDK (Momentics) IDE. I experienced it myself, and found out how to resolve the issue. The issue is caused by the VMNet adapter on auto-configure the virtual network adapter for ipv6.
For those using Linux. You might be notice that you cannot access the dev alpha using the auto mode on the dev alpha. I experienced it myself when trying to connect BlackBerry Dev Alpha on Linux box. Linux is able to recognise the BlackBerry Dev Alpha Device as a USB device but I cannot ping it. However, I find a solution that worked on Ubuntu.
As you might have been known as it creates a buzz in the Startup Media and Online mainstream media recently, that I’m now joining Research In Motion as Developer Evangelist. Being in the startup scene since mid-2010 and helping gamedev communities since late-2011, there might be some questions arise regarding my move. Inspired by Justin Lee, my colleague at RIM who have not so dissimilar situation, I decided to write them in this Blog.
Mobile manufacturers are in fierce race in recent days. The adrenalin feels like what happens when there’s Graphic Card Bubble in late 90′s and early 2000. The time of 3Dfx vs nVidia vs ATI. That sweet days! So, personally everybody had their preference of one manufacturer to another. Maybe because of its App Store, its unique UI, value to your business, or the user base. Everybody had different preferences. But there’s five things I would like to talk about as a developer. I will compare Apple, RIM, Nokia, and Android (as a sum of all manufacturers). With these considerations:
Apple, I have been doing Apple Apps since last year.
RIM, I have attend and doing some QNX Apps since last month.
Nokia, I know Qt even before its acquired by nokia, and Symbian C++ since 2005.
Android, It is very popular, and I used to port some of my creation here too.
This is nice news, Apparently the Culinary Guide Apps made by travelinseven.com founder: Asep Bagja Priandana (@bepitulaz) has been featured on the Blackberry App World per Tuesday, March 20, 2012. This post is about the technical detail of the apps, for the review, I leave it to the experts.
Here we go again, I am back with new post. After thinking throughout weekend, what’s the interesting post. Then I decided to post on OSX Friendliness on Mobile Platforms as I am just starting mobile development. I tried many SDKs and IDEs. The platforms decided to take out two platform from the assessment, it’s iOS and Windows Phone. Because it’s obvious, iOS is friendly with OSX whereas WP7 isn’t friendly with OSX.
I am attending Blackberry Devcon Asia again this month at Suntec CC, Singapore. As a non-Blackberry user. it’s a little weird to attend RIM event. However, I was a little courious with their new next gen platform, previously named BBX, but because RIM loses in trademark lawsuit, it changes it to Blackberry 10.
