This might be a bit of surprise posting, but I was shown this morning a press release that blackberry are releasing a visual studio plugin for .NET. In their own words …

“introduce a new development tool that will enable developers to work within the familiar .NET programming environment to rapidly create rich client wireless applications for BlackBerry smartphones. The BlackBerry® Plug-in for Microsoft® Visual Studio® provides system integrators and in-house corporate developers with the ability to create BlackBerry applications that seamlessly integrate with back-end systems through .NET Web Services. “

The full story is here.

This is some exciting news and will allow application development across multiple platforms. Come on Nokia its your turn …

I was helping out with some admin stuff at MEDC in the US and the couple of hours I spent at the infodesk I was firstly surprised by the number of devices that were handed in as lost, but big doses of good karma for those folks handing the devices in.

The second surprise was the number of devices that were unlocked and unprotected. I guess this follows nicely to the talk I am giving at MEDC in OZ next week. Please lock your device 🙂

Wow MEDC US is completed and now its time to head home, on reflection it was a great conference and near Mecca like experience.  Walking around and listening to sessions by some of the worlds great mobile developers such as people like  Doug Boling, Alex Feinmam and Daniel Moth to name a few. The amount of coding frustrations these guys have saved me its ridiculous.

There has been some much content in the sessions I would be doing no justice to the content by trying to describe it here, if your a mobile developer and want to be at the forefront of mobile development then this is the place to be.

The big content takeaways for the conference is the growth of the Micro Framework and whats is coming in the next release of Visual Studio.

Well its time to move the mobile office to Las Vegas Airport so will chat more later.
