A Personal Update

Today I would like to give you a quick update about…me :-) 

People familiar with my activities and who have been in touch with me for a while now, know me mostly as a “startupper”, in particular involved  with Twimbow, the company I co-founded, or Abbeynet, the company from which Twimbow was spun off and that I served for the past 12 years.

Today I would like to share with you an important news related to my new adventure: starting July 2nd (next monday), I am joining Research In Motion in the Developer Relations team as BlackBerry Developer Evangelist for the italian market. 

To be honest, this is a news for me, too, quite unexpected, everything happened very quickly. There are a couple of reasons behind this choice, first and foremost the great challenges RIM has been facing in the past months and the incredible effort they are putting to change the skin of the company completely before the launch of their new smartphone based on BlackBerry 10 OS. 

For this reason, I am very proud to have been chosen for this important role. RIM is creating an outstanding Developer Relations team around the world, headed by VP Alec Saunders, dedicated to help developers bring their great apps to the new upcoming operating system.

BlackBerry 10 is gonna be an incredible revolution for the smartphone market, a truly open platform, capable of running Android apps natively and also the platform that is easiest in terms of porting and developing mobile apps. Moreover, it’s the only truly multi-tasking mobile OS, open to possibilities that could have been never imagined before, with outstanding performances.

Looking forward to next Monday, ready to do my best for the success of RIM.

For any question, just drop me a line ;-)
