Erik Oros

Application Development Consultant | BlackBerry

Waterloo, ON, CANADA

We're at a point where web development is evolving to whole new level. To be at the forefront of such a movement is truly an exciting thing.









I joined RIM in 2009 and am currently in a Development Consultant role with the BlackBerry Developer Relations team. My primary focus is the Java and HTML5 space. HTML5 is gaining a rather strong foothold in the mobile arena and I'm excited to be involved here, and to see what it brings in the coming years. My main goal is to bring my knowledge and resources to developers in all aspects of their application development cycle. Look for me in the BlackBerry Jam Zone, posting under 'oros'.

Sample Talks (1)

BlackBerry and HTML5 Development

Discussion surrounding: - What the BlackBerry platform has to offer to web developers. - The tools that are available for BlackBerry development (Ripple, SDKs, etc.) - Various technologies and frameworks (BBUI.js, jQuery, WebGL, etc.) Basically, if it is HTML5 and BlackBerry related, it's fair game.
