Topic: Introducing BlackBerry 10

Presenter: Tom Anderson


In this meeting, you will be introduced to BlackBerry 10 starting with a demo of the system and a presentation on the philosophies behind this ground-breaking platform.

Speaker Bio:

Tom started his career in 1986 as a Program Manager with Microsoft Corporation, on such products as Windows 3.11, Windows for Workgroups, Windows 95, and Internet Explorer. He was also the creator of the Windows Resource Kit, which began that product line. In addition, Tom presented at many trade shows and gave technical presentations with the executive staff. In 1995 he formed Three Points Consulting with two partners, which focused on bringing the power of the emerging internet technology to everyday life. Tom's innovative technology solutions played a key role in the successful acquisition of Three Points. In 2004, Tom decided to become a high school teacher as his primary method of giving back to the community. In 2005 he joined the Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School (PA CYBER), where he was awarded the Keystone Award for Innovative Use of Technology in the Class Room. During this time, he also earned a Master's degree in Software Design through Capella University. In 2009, in addition to teaching, Tom returned to software development, creating various web and mobile applications. Tom joined RIM in 2012 as Senior Developer Evangelist.
