Tom from Future Platforms talks about BlueVia from BlueVia on Vimeo.

Developers in the London area, listen up: BlueVia, a company that provides information, API's and a testing platform to help make mobile app launches a success, is hosting a TouchPad-friendly, webOS HackEvening this Monday, July 11th in London, England. They'll be giving London developers a chance to go hands-on with an HP TouchPad for themselves, see some presentations on webOS 3.0 App Development, and get connected with a large network of developers that are there to help each other grow (and compete with each other, of course). Something else that's cool with this event, HP Engineers will be on hand as well to give tours of the device and SDK. 

With 42 openings left to register for the event, space available is going fast, so head over to the information page (in our source link) to get more details and sign up. There are some pre-requisites before arriving at the event as well, so click through the break to read the full Press Release, and then let us know in the comments if you'll be there. Be sure to check out our webOS Events page for July as well.
