RIM is presenting their latest webcast for developers Tuesday, April 13, 2010 at 2:00 PM EST. This time around they are talking about the BlackBerry Application Platform Push Service and it is sure to be an informative discussion as always. Pratik Sapra, Mobile Application Development Specialist, and Joe Reda, Application Development Consultant, are the presenters, and you will need to set aside about an hour and a half for the full presentation.
In this webcast, you’ll learn how the BlackBerry Push Service can:
- Push any type of data, text or images without restrictions. Developers can even send large amounts of data (more than 8 KB) by using multiple pushes that get reassembled on arrival.
- Use true push technology to turn your app into a Super App.
- Deliver data to BlackBerry smartphones in the background, providing the user with an always-connected BlackBerry experience.
- Create network-efficient apps. Unlike competitor apps that repeatedly poll servers for new data, BlackBerry Super Apps optimize data usage and battery life.
If you are interested in attending, be sure to sign up! RIM usually makes the presentation available on demand a day or two after the live webcast, so if you can’t make it that option is also available, from the registration link.
