Just an FYI. I hadn't received my customary email yet and noticed this on RIM's website. Anyone going this year?

I dont find that I get the emails reliably from RIM either. Mind you theyre kind of useless since these seminars are only stateside :(

I'm curious if they event sent these out...? I never received any information on the Administration course in Atlanta for a few weeks back, I don't think. I wouldn't have minded attending that, for peace of mind. Last year, I remember receiving the emails for the CWTE seminar...

You live in Sydney? That's the single place that I envision myself on ending up permanently, one day. I absolutely LOVED my trip down there a few years back - the city is just so clean, its amazing (and Melbourne even moreso).

I know I get occasional emails about new courses and the like, its more than likely a monthly email rather than a notification.

As for Sydney, its not a bad place to work, although I'm fairly underpaid where I am now -_-

Anyone going to the Toronto seminar? I may go for the developer track... but then again, I might not... If I know a few people from here are going, I'll most likely make an appearance.

Do they give better advice then "Wipe and reinstall the handheld software" at these seminars?

I've been to every WES and CWTE RIM has had and I'm bored with them. If you are the BES admin and have been doing it for a year or longer and on 4.0, I don't see much need. Maybe development stuff and the preview of MDS 4.1 and BES 4.1 but is that worth $300, I don't think so.

If you are new to BES admin or BB development, then I think CWTE would be very valuable. I may still go to network and hang out with my rim/carrier friends but not for the info.

Oh, and I guess you do get breakfast, lunch and free drinks at the end, not to mention a day away from the office but is it still worth $300?

jibi,
Do you know if they will be having a followup seminar the following morning? I can't remember what they called it but last year they had something the next morning, but I didn't know about it and had to leave after the last session (and the free beer!)
