Reaching a new audience in less than 10 minutes – Manny Elwar

Many mobile developers these days focus their efforts on only a single platform, limiting the potential gains of an entirely new audience.  These same developers are also unaware of how much existing resources they can reuse to reach that audience in a short period of time. Join BlackBerry Developer Evangelist Manny Elawar as he walks you through some of the key ways you can start developing for multiple mobile platforms from the very start with little overhead.

Manny Elawar travels the globe in the hopes of finding talented developers eager to pursue new opportunities on the new and exciting BlackBerry 10 Platform. Manny’s technical background primarily includes C/C++ development for simulation tools, specifically in the areas of Mobile Device Management, BlackBerry Enterprise Server, and VoIP. He has an educational background in Software Engineering and Business Administration. 

How Closure Compiler can help protect your IP

Sharing can be a good thing. But would you “borrow” a box of Blu-ray movies from Best Buy and share them with your friends? Of course not. Unfortunately, when it comes to purely digital assets like proprietary databases, some people consider it open season to share what does not belong to them.
Our small firm, which owns and licenses proprietary databases, faces this threat on a daily basis. We’ll describe some techniques we use, including Google Closure Compiler, to protect our IP and the integrity of our online system.
