Please Login to Remove!

I have been going since 2009 and its been great to attend. I will miss meeting many friends that I have made and met with them in Orlando.

Maybe we can meet up at one of the smaller events, you never know

That's disappointing to hear. I've never attended, but always enjoyed reading the news coming out of the event.

That blows. I thought that after they cancelled BlackBerry Jam Europe 2014 they would at least keep Live going. Pare down the events list, but don't kill it completely. If Chen wants to energize the brand they need at least **some** visibility and engagement with developers.

Probably was the losers left in charge who made the call.
Chen needs to clean house. rambo47 is absolutly correct, visibility if required.

I certainly understand cost cutting and the move away from consumers/hardware to enterprise. I don't like it coming so abruptly, especially after a multi-year courtship of the general consumer. But strictly from the perspective of even enterprise customers having confidence in BlackBerry's survival, keeping developers engaged and demonstrating a public presence should still be a consideration.
