Default BB World 2012 Sessions

Please Login to Remove!

Dear BlackBerry World 2012 Organizers.

Umm... not wanting to sound impatient, but there's 25 calendar days (18 work days) to go until BBW12 begins and the Breakout Sessions aren't scheduled yet.
Personally, I've got 20 sessions bookmarked and I would like to know just how many conflicts there will be so I can coordinate efforts with my fellow BES Admins to attend as many sessions as possible, then share the info with one another.

And if you're going to implement a Mobile App like in years past, make it work better than in years past. (Or make it work on an iPhone. LOL)

Sincerely,
~DBB

04/04/12 @ 9:08am - They must be working on an update. There are no sessions listed any longer. Even the Printable Catalog link gives an error:

Code:
500 Servlet Exception

[show] javax.servlet.ServletException: javax.servlet.jsp.JspException: javax.servlet.jsp.JspException:
Exception thrown by getter for property preferenceCache.eventCode of bean
cacheService
So either they saw my original post yesterday and said,"WOW, we better get moving on the schedule" or Frank Castle is right and it's gonna be cancelled. LOL

Dear BlackBerry World 2012,
There's 17 calendar days (11 work days) to go until BBW12 and we still can't register for sessions. Please don't cut it so close as many of us like to schedule, reschedule and compare calendars so as to maximize our learning experience. We realize that an event of this magnitude takes careful planning and thought. However, it's not like you DIDN'T know it was coming. You encourage us to register early, but then fail to show us what we're registering for.

And thanks for the Mobile App that has to be viewed on BlackBerry OS 5.0.0 or higher. Those of us who are hanging onto old legacy devices with 4.5.x are now forced to temporarily upgrade against our wishes. I really like my legacy BlackBerry Pearl 8130. When I have brought it with me to WES/BBW in the past, I get to tell people that I'm going "retro" or "old school." Thanks to your developers, the new Mobile App which requires 5.0.0 or higher, you have now killed my inner child.
Lastly in reference to the Mobile App, it won't even allow you to log in to see what you have bookmarked. I guess that's because you can't schedule sessions yet; see Paragraph #1. Based upon your spam e-mail advertising for BlackBerry World, the Mobile App:
It's easier than ever to stay up-to-date with news and information about BlackBerry World™! Use the Mobile Conference Guide application on your BlackBerry® smartphone or BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet to access the breakout session catalog, look up session details and sponsors, follow breaking news via the BlackBerry social channels, complete conference surveys, and more.

You'll be able to schedule your breakout sessions soon, and you can do it right from the Mobile Conference Guide! The app will notify you when there are schedule changes, and it synchronizes with your conference schedule in the My Scheduler tool.
The key word here is "SOON." Since the e-mail was from 04/05/2012, "SOON" is a broadbased term that does not have boundaries. (BESv5 was announced at WES 2008 to be released "SOON". 2 years later, it was finally released. Go figure.)

So far, it's a disappointing BBW12 season. Maybe you'll give away some awesome cool swag when everybody arrives as your way of saying "We're sorry! Don't leave us for iPhones!" Cool Swag can be defined as BES Server Authentication Codes or Fusion Authentication Codes with 1000 CALs each for all attendees. I wouldn't complain... much.
Thanks for listening and hope to see the shining side of BBW12.
Sincerely,
~DBB

Dates and times posted.
Seems as though I've got a lot of conflicts. Then again, I do have 25 sessions bookmarked. I expected a few conflicts, but not this many!
All these great sessions at the same time? Betcha they're gonna be popular and crowded. Geeezzzzzz

I only ran into a couple conflicts for what I want to do. Then again, I'm not an admin so there's less for me. My BES Admin did ask me to attend a few for him since he's not going.

Anybody else having issues logging into the Mobile Conference Guide? I'm a bit jaded since I had to go away from my old school device and get a Bold.

I can get into it. But I find the app no use because it doesn't load my schedule.... it just shows us the sessions.

Let me rephrase the question.... can anybody actually LOG INTO the app with their credentials to look at their personalized schedule?

So far, I find the mobile app useless.

I don't even see that as an option, the app sucks because we can't login. I'm sure they have to release a different app or an update soon
