I am a linux sysadmin/coder by trade. I see that most of the development tools available for blackberry are either Java based or MS:VS based.. are there any tools a bit more along the lines of what I'm already familiar with? (perl/python, even c).
Trust me, I'm not knocking anyone's favorite language, it would simply be easier for me to develop in a language I already know, obviously.
Lastly, on the dev site on blackberry.com I see a "MDS Studio" which seems to be a UI of some sort designed to make developing for the BB quicker... but am I correct in gathering that this method requires a BB server to deploy any applications written in it?
If nothing else, I would be interested to know what strengths/weaknesses there are in choosing say Java over MS:VS's C++/whatever, or vice versa.
Thanks guys, I've always dreamed of being able to develop apps for my own phone/bb.
