What I understood from the keynote was that the BB Jam attendees would have extra time (2 weeks) to optimize their app if they showed their interest to the Dev Alpha C / Q10. You had to bring your BAR file to the event and test it at the Dev Alpha C testing booth. At the booth there was a laptop with a Dev Alpha C connected to it. Two programs were showing on the laptop: the BlackBerry Graphical Aid to deploy your signed bar to the device and a Notepad window where you could enter your name and email. The Notepad window also stated that you must submit your app before 22 February to apply for the Dev Alpha C.
I could not find any official documentation about this offer and also the people at the booth didn't know exactly what the rules were. They said only one app needs to be submitted before 22 February.

And you didn't think of asking the guy at the booth? I appreciate the gesture RIM is doing for the Jam attendants. However if everything has to be that precise or people start complaining I expect even fewer device giveaways at future Jam events.

Has anyone received anything? I mean, the week is over and there are no mails, at least I didn't get one.

I test my apps first day on DevAlpha C and there was no notepad. I asked BB guy at the booth, how I will leave my data and he didn't know. So, he take picture of my BBJam pass with his phone, and said he will make sure to submit my data.

I tested my apps on both days, and on the computers I was working there was twice a notepad open.
But anyway, I just received a mail with some more information. The exact deadline and all you need to know.
You can find the T&C on following link: http://developer.blackberry.com/offers/devalphac/
In the T&C they only say that you had to be on the Jam Europe 2013. So I guess that all people who haven't filled in their information will still be able to qualify if they submit an app.
So let's stop arguing, and start coding !
