Blackberry next update is BB OS 10.2. It will provide support for android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean). Curerntly BB has support for Android 2.3.2 (Gingerbread). About 20,000 app in Blackberry World are ported Gingerbread apps..
Many more android apps will be ported to Blackberry after BB OS 10.2 is released. The major change to android apps is the addition of a software back button. Blackberry phones lack a HARDWARE back button found on android and windows phones. iPhones have a software back button in each app like blackberry.
Here's our starting point http://xamarin.com/monoforandroidThere is a Starter (free) edition for download at the bottom of the page. Starter ed. has some limitations but enough power to give us a taste of the technology. Please download and install the Starter software bundle before the session to smooth your participation experience. Thank you.
Xamarin web site has LOTS of sample code and apps.
Bring your laptop because we are a .NET programming club. The focus of the hackers meetup is coding around a theme. You can work on your own or break off into small groups around a specific aspect of the meeting theme, whatever works best for you.
