BlackBerry Launches QNX Everywhere

QNX Everywhere initiative offers easy access to QNX software for academia, advanced research organizations and hobbyists

BlackBerry has launched QNX Everywhere, a new initiative to address growing global demand for highly-skilled embedded systems’ developers.

As markets including automotive, industrial, robotics and medical pursue a software-defined future, software engineers familiar with the most popular platforms and technologies are in high demand.

QNX Everywhere is designed to offer students, academic institutions, research organizations, and hobbyists the opportunity to gain practical experience with QNX technologies.

These technologies are utilized by the top eight medical device manufacturers and over 45 leading vehicle manufacturers globally. The program promises to provide self-service access to QNX software, on-demand training, QNX-optimized open-source projects, and cloud-enabled development tools.

It also includes support for widely available, low-cost CPU boards, facilitating the design and testing of software on embedded hardware.

“Embedded devices are becoming increasingly software-defined, complex and pervasive, at a speed that is outpacing the talent market’s ability to upskill on practical knowledge,” said Grant Courville, VP, Products and Strategy, BlackBerry QNX.

“The QNX Everywhere initiative offers frictionless access to QNX software for students, hobbyists, and academic and advanced research organizations. By making QNX accessible to these enthusiasts and groups, we hope to increase availability of valuable skills across the global developer ecosystem.”

QNX Everywhere will introduce elements including self-service access to QNX software, on-demand training, QNX-optimized open-source projects and easy access to cloud-enabled development tools.

Additionally, QNX will be providing support for broadly available, low-cost CPU boards to help enable developers to easily design and test their software on embedded hardware.

The initiative will commence in early 2024, with further details to be available in coming weeks.
