If you live in London and are interested in some info on developing for the Nook platform, Barnes & Noble is holding an event on March 19th that might be worth attending. The workshop will cover "the entire development process — from app creation to app submission," There's also a panel entitled "Tablets Come of Age" that will include a discussion with Barnes & Noble's director of developer relations. The fact that Barnes & Noble is courting developers outside the US with an event like this is rather unusual, given the fact that the Nook hardware can only be purchased in the United States currently. However, the company has already indicated that it is interested in bringing the Nook to other countries — an event like this might be a way for Barnes & Noble to start drumming up interest in the platform ahead of its eventually launch. If you're in London and want to find out for yourself, the event is free for anyone to attend.
