RIM has opened the first of its global tech centres at its headquarters in Slough for developers looking to create apps for the BlackBerry 10 operating system.

The dedicated workspace has aimed to help developers looking to create apps for the impending BlackBerry system, with a BlackBerry team also present to provide support and advice for those using the space.

In addition, each day will have a specific focus to allow developers to choose when to attend, for example a Tuesday will be centred around Android, iOS and Windows developers looking to bring their apps to BlackBerry.

Alec Saunders, VP developer relations at RIM said in a statement: “The opening of this first BlackBerry Tech Centre underscores our ongoing commitment to actively engage with and support the efforts of our developer community.

“This new centre in our EMEA headquarters designates space where developers can draw on the resources and skill set of our experienced developer evangelist team to help them create compelling apps for the new BlackBerry 10 platform.

“I’m looking forward to seeing the apps that will come from the UK developer community over the weeks and months ahead,” he added.
