After all of the excitement around the last two Port-A-Thon events we held, we have decided to do it again! Here it is – the exclusive Android Port-A-Thon for BlackBerry 10. Android developers you asked and we have responded; this is a dedicated event just for you.
The Android Port-A-Thon for BlackBerry 10 will start at noon ET on January 11, 2013 and run for 36 hours. It is a virtual event, so you will be able to log in from the comfort of your home, your desk at work or even set up a porting party with your friends. As with the first events, the more apps you port the greater the reward for you.
The more you port and build the greater your rewards*:
Porting Android apps to BlackBerry 10
Since more apps mean more rewards, you should take advantage of the tips below and get ready before you join the event.
Here’s what you need to get prepared ahead of time.
We also have porting guides and tools you can use to get a head start.

I am trying to register at http://developer.blackberry.com/offers/androidport
I can't figure out which account/password to use. I have tried the one I use for this forum, the one we use for the developer portal, the one I use for other BB development, all with no luck. Please help! How do I get a valid login?

Register using the email address used on your BlackBerry App World Vendor account.
There isn't any password required to sign up... Where are you stuck?

Now that is strange. The link is now taking me to a different page than I was seeing before. I have signed up at the page I am now seeing. Thank you.
