Re: Blackberry JAM, who received the device?

i don't know anything about it as well. maybe you should have tried talking to one of the RIM people after the event.
at least in Berlin they were really accessible and friendly, and i know of at least one person who got an device afterwards.

"i know of at least one person who got an device afterwards"

 

Same in London.

 

But similarly, there were people present who were not developers who got the device.

Well the Jam is not coming to my city and have email Alec about getting a device and basically someone replied saying they do not have enough devices to give away outside of the Jam tour. 

 

I think most  people who attend the Jam just want the dev unit but have no intention of developing any apps.

Re: Blackberry JAM, who received the device?

Well... The jam is not coming to my city either... I have to take a 2 hours flight and got the news that not qualified.. Hahaa

Of course it was all about the device. How can you get the limited edition device and the most important thing... It was FREE as long as you attend all the sessions.

Re: Blackberry JAM, who received the device?

Yeah the closest Jam is an hour flight and I ain't going.  Not really worth the price just for that.  I may goto the America Jam if they offer free dev unit.

 

It is really sad how we devs want to develop for BB10 and yet shut out of the device and they let non devs get the unit.  These units are probably collecting dust.

 

I have not read want the qualifications are but i'm sure you must have signed up for Appworld vendor.

You guys aren't really trying Smiley Wink

 

I only had to take a 2 hour drive, 1 hour flight, over night hotel (outside London), then a 2 hour train, 3/4 hour underground, plus 1 hour walk (yes I got lost) to get to London Jam!  And on the way back, the train broke down, so I missed my flight - another night's accommodation.  And for the BBM Hackathon I had underground, plus a 3 hour bus, plus overnight bus.  Saved on accommodation in London (not cheap) but sleep was not plentiful.
