What were all the ways to get a Dev Alpha Device ??

[ Edited ]

Hello Everybody ..

 

I know getting a dev alpha device is not possible now. 

But I want to know what were all the ways to get a Dev Alpha device till now ???

 

As far as I know ...

1. Attending JAM events.

2. Port-A-Thons (Got Game Port-A-Thon, Port-A-Thon on 11th Jan 2013, when were other Port-A-Thons held ??)

3. Applying directly for a Dev Alpha C (Deadline was 5th Feb 2013, qualified devs have already got the emails)

4. By porting Titanium App to BB10 from Appcelerator. (Deadline was 30th Jan 2013)

 

Any other events/contests that were giving away Dev Alpha Device to devs ???

 

I got qualified for a Dev Alpha C, but I required a Dev Alpha B or LE Z10 as well to test my Full Screen Apps, 

So I want to know what all events I missed which could have given me a Dev Alpha B device.

I am not sure about the other port-a-thon but I know for sure that they didn't do the last port-a-thon since they reported they won't do the draw until all app have been approved. I am unsure when that will happen.

@Teboy1748 Lets wait.. Bcoz I have uploaded some of my apps during Last-Chance-Port-A-Thon. So there is some chance for me to win a Dev Alpha B device.

I got my Dev Alpha B at the BlackBerry booth at Qt Developer Days 2012.
