The 'gold' build includes all of the final tools, components, and APIs that will enable developers to create integrated, social and beautiful applications for BlackBerry 10, and have the confidence that their apps will delight customers at launch." Let's hope so. This industry needs more viable players.

Having developed a small Playbook game with WebWorks (for the purposes of the make an app, get a tablet promo they ran pre-launch), I can say that actually development of the app was very painless. I did almost all of my developing in Chrome, and now that the Ripple emulator is available, this should become even easier.

The major pain point at the time was the horrible packaging/signing/submitting process. Since Ripple can sign and package your apps as well, this should be much easier now too.

Unfortunately, my app recently broke from an OS update and I haven't had time to finish and deploy my fix. I think I've got the fix done, but I will have to wait for the Christmas break to test/package/deploy it.

Anyway, I highly encourage you to build a WebWorks app. Use it as an excuse to learn a new and interesting framework like angular.js.
