    2. No

    Do you know how to code or are you starting from scratch?

    ok you should be able to get started just by working through the getting started guide.

    BlackBerry Native

    You may have to learn some c++ but the examples are pretty simple.

    Good Luck!

    I just found this thread and I think this is what I'm looking for. I don't want to be one of these miserable folks who keep complaining about the lack of Apps in BlackBerry World ; I want to be someone adding to the BlackBerry experience, but the last time I programmed I used QBasic. It sounds like I should start with learning C++ based on what I've read so far.

    So, I have questions to to get things started :
    A)Are there any other tips for a novice like me?
    B)Any websites besides the one already mentioned?
    C)Any books to read or use as reference?
    D) Are there other languages I need to incorporate into my skill development?
    E) HTML5 and CSS, should I be working those into any Apps I develop?
    F) I live in the GTA in Ontario, Canada, are there any recommended courses I should take?

    Please assume I know SFA about App development when explaining stuff. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Get good at C and C++. C won't take long. C++ will take a long time.

    B)Any websites besides the one already mentioned?
    Cascades is based on Qt4.8 . Learning the basic on how Qt works will help.
    http://doc.qt.io/qt-4.8/

    C)Any books to read or use as reference?
    There's one free book about programming native apps for BB10/Cascades. Sadly, I've never seen any books besides that. The best resource currently is Blackberry's developer site.

    D) Are there other languages I need to incorporate into my skill development?
    QML and Javascript.

    E) HTML5 and CSS, should I be working those into any Apps I develop?
    You can build HTML5/JavaScript apps for BB10 using Apache Cordova.

    In addition to what bidirectional said, if you are going to program in C or C++ do not gloss over the threading model used by Cascades. Mistakes in implementing the threading model correctly can make an otherwise great application a complete pain to use.

    The BlackBerry developer site is full of really good advice but you have to read and understand it. Don't assume that you can just copy the example off a page and get a good application without reading all the documentation that comes with it.

    A good rule of thumb, particularly if you are not well versed in C++ and the Qt threading model is to write your application as much as possible in QML and JavaScript. You get a professional threading implementation and GPU optimization for free.

    I'd love to see more BB10 developers. I'd be willing to pay more for mainstream apps that were BB10 native.
