Re: BBJam Europe - DevAlpha C

You cannot apply: it was an offer for the BlackBerry Jam Europe attendants who tested their app on the Dev Alpha C devices and left their information.

Re: BBJam Europe - DevAlpha C

I joined the Europe Jam event  three days before, but don't notice this thread.


Hundreds of DevAlpha C on the floor.

Re: BBJam Europe - DevAlpha C

Yeah I saw the same collection of Dev Alpha C's. For those who weren't there, they were for some sessions of BB Jam where you could use a Dev Alpha C to test your application (or whatever you were making in that session).

 

I don't know if it will be these devices that we will receive. But the OS that was on these device was not really the same as on the other Dev Alphas A/B because the Hub was disabled somehow. There were also some other differences, but I didn't test them fully during these sessions.

 

And indeed you had to write your name in a document if you wanted to receive a Dev Alpha C. But I haven't found any official documentation about this. If somebody has found this, I would really like to know.



A like is always appreciated,
but a nomination for BB Elite even more :-)

Re: BBJam Europe - DevAlpha C

I played around with the C but didn't notice any document.

I had assumed they would have us submit a C optimized app for approval to get one and match up the vendor email to see if we were at BBJam EU. -- Based on the fact that Alec mentioned we had 2 weeks to get a C-optimized app into App World.

Seriously disappointed that I didn't get my name on the documentation after travelling the 6000km to get there.

Re: BBJam Europe - DevAlpha C

There was a notepad open on the DevAlphaC stations where you could enter your name and vendor email. I've been told that emails will be sent this week to those who subscribed.

Re: BBJam Europe - DevAlpha C

They did mention it during the keynote speech though, a moment I think 90% of the developers was paying attention.

[ Edited ]

Not true. We were group of 12 there and nobody could tell me what was exactly said on the keynote. And keep in mind that they could use BB Jam EU app to notify us officially. I also been at the stand and I couldn't figure it out that there was a notepad where I could put my info. And apps from App World were not be able to download onto C. Additionally even unsigned BARs didn't work, too. And USB stick was the only possible mean of BAR transport.
