It's fantastic to see how Research In Motion are engaging in developer communities beyond the current BlackBerry crowd. This weekend's upcoming Port-A-Thon is a testament to this commitment as not just Android developers, nut all developers are invited, to take part in porting their apps during a live event for 36 hours - starting on 11th January.
Any developers that have apps that they would like to see on the BlackBerry 10 platform can join in and get real-time support from the BlackBerry developre team.
As an added incentive, there will be some rewards up for grabs!
- If you get one or more apps approved you can receive $100 per eligible app for a maximum of 20 paid applications
- Get between five and ten apps approved and THE FIRST TWO HUNDRED (200) QUALIFIED PARTICIPANTS ONLY receive a Dev Alpha Device in addition to the other rewards
- AND if you have more than 10 apps approved, you'll receive $100 per app, a Dev Alpha AND for the first 10 participants, a paid trip to BlackBerry Jam Europe!
