This week RIM sent me an email saying that I unlocked the BlackBerry 10 Jam badge for attending the first annual BlackBerry 10 Jam event in Orlando. I logged into the new BlackBerry Developer Zone and there in the top right corner I redeemed my badge and noticed a bunch of new badges that I had achieved or could achieve (I have 5 of the 17). Better yet RIM had awarded me 610 BlackBerry Developer Zone Rewards Points that I could redeem for BlackBerry swag.
I immediately ordered a BlackBerry Jam hoodie for 500 points with many more goodies to win. You can redeem the points for everything from a messenger bag to a free pass to BlackBerry World or other events.
If you are a developer I highly recommend checking out the new Developer Zone rewards area and seeing what you can achieve. Kudos to the RIM team for following up on their promise to reward developers for their engagement in the community!
