As coding book it serves it purpose.

Blackberry also has a growing library available for free to developpers that can get you to roughly the same point as this book.

Good read for those of you that prefer a book to learn as opposed to learning on screen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly effective and well-written book June 10 2014
By Michael Dwyer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I've never before seen a book that so quickly demystified a programming topic as this on does. If you have held off developing native/Cascades BB10 apps because you felt overwhelmed by learning Qt, wait longer!

You can honestly begin cranking out a good app after a few hours of reading this book. There are many niches left to be filled in BlackBerry World and this book has allowed me to start doing so!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Development Environment Today May 26 2014
By Wyzard - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Background: I have web development experience and a know a little C++

As I read this book, I'm dumbfounded with how simple BlackBerry has made it to create beautiful, native apps for BB 10.

The first chapter has a section on C++/Qt that is not suited for beginners, but don't let that scare you. It is there to show you how awesome QML is (introduced in chapter 2). With QML, a JavaScript-inspired layout and programming language, you will be creating beautiful apps in 1 hour or less.

No joke, you can learn to create native BlackBerry 10 apps in about 1 hour or less. Take that Android/iPhone/Windows Phone!
