I'm a developer on the West Coast. I've been building a Webworks app that invokes the camera so needs to be tested on an actual device, and I've been successfully deploying builds to my development Z10 using the command-line tools and deploying directly to the device via its IP address on my local network.
The client is on the East Coast. They want to see how things are going, and want to start testing the app in its current state to offer feedback and bug reports on the parts that are done.
How do I deploy my app in development to their phone?

Followup -- I understand that they could install the whole SDK and deploy the app package that way, but they're the client not a developer and it'll be tough getting that set up for them.
If that's the only way, however, do they need to have developer tokens set up on their machine? Or can I just have the dev token in the package so they can simply run blackberry-deploy to push my .bar file to their phone?

If you sign before you send they won't need a debug token
For a novice you probably want to check out one of the many side loaders available
Just google "BlackBerry 10 sideload bar file" and pick something nice + easy
A BAR file is actually just a ZIP so you're giving them the full source code - hopefully they won't have anyone around who knows that)

If you are willing to create a draft entry in BlackBerry World for the app you can use the method described in the following post. It allows you make the app avaialble via BlackBerry World to anyone in your Sandboxed list that has the application ID. It won't be available to the rest of the world though.
Here is the official documentation on this process as well:
