Let us get BlackBerry Builder certified using Jam points

[ Edited ]

I'm not sure where to post this, but I think it would make sense to let developers buy exams vouchers for the BlackBerry Builder exams using their Jam points.

I'd rather have a certification than a hoodie and a cap Smiley Wink

This is cool, but what about does who don't have jam point?

Re: Let us get BlackBerry Builder certified using Jam points

I like the idea, seems like it would be a win-win situation for BlackBerry. @Guru01 if you don't have Jam points you can earn them by contributing to the forum.

Re: Let us get BlackBerry Builder certified using Jam points

I sent this suggestion in to our marketing and education teams and they are going to talk about it. They sound interested, just need to figure out the details.

 

Thanks for posting it here.

Re: Let us get BlackBerry Builder certified using Jam points

I can never find anything to spend the points on

 

When I had no points to talk of they had gift cards for the BB store as I remember

 

I get a nice little stack of points and all I can buy is the gear

 

2 hoodies, a bag and bottle set of magnets later (1750 pts) I've still got 1760 left and nothing worth spending them on

 

Got the cap too (JamSterdam cards)

Re: Let us get BlackBerry Builder certified using Jam points

Can I suggest a 'sort of' petition over this

 

We don't really wanna deluge JamRewards with emails - so lets - to start - all say this sounds like something we love the idea of

 

For those of you who ain't familiar with Jam Rewards log in here then click on the partial circle on the right underneath your name etc in the header area (the black bit) - its easy to miss as the colours are very light

 

You'll probably have a few points anyway - you get 10 just for posting here

 

Hover any badge and you see what you need to do in order to be awarded it - I've got 11 and intend to do #12 soon

 

Above the badges you'll see the Order Rewards link (they're pretty depressing)

 

1500 points is easy to obtain if you're a helpful, active member of the community - this being around the price I would guess they would place on what we're after an hour a day helping others out means that in a few months you could be Blackberry Certified (if they go for it)

 

Thoughts and suggestions anyone?

 

We either make this a REALLY long thread our Moids + Ops can use as proof of the popularity of the idea or we do it another way

 

Personally I've got 1760 points and nothing to spend them on - BB Cert would be a super spend that would both help me and BB

Re: Let us get BlackBerry Builder certified using Jam points

I'm not really sure on how to make things progress with BB tbh. Issues in the tracker seem to die out and don't get much participation, forum threads slide down in the abyss of time and Twitter flooding would not be very productive.

 

It would be great if we could reach out to more devs, maybe via blogs and bb forums and invite them to post on here?

 

There have been 2 positive signs so far:
- Tim has forwarded the idea to the appropriate departments
- BBdev on Twitter has replied that they have passed on the idea to "the team"

 

It shouldn't be too complicated to put in place once marketing gives the green light.

 

And I agree that the sweet spot for the voucher would be 1500 points.
