Its nice to see developers taking advantage of the incentives RIM is using to ignite development for BlackBerry 10. Just over a month ago they announced a program for developers to receive a free copy of the Marmalade SDK along with a free BlackBerry PlayBook if they develop and release their app on BlackBerry App World. This program was supposed to last a few months but Shane at OSBB noticed that it has already been exhausted.
Marmalade has posted a notice on their landing page for the BlackBerry offer that it is now closed. The reason they give is due to exceptional demand. That is awesome to see since the offer really only pays out once you release your app in BlackBerry App World. Devs who already signed up are golden and simply need to release their app in App World to get the free Marmalade SDK license and a free PlayBook. Kudos to the BlackBerry Dev Relations Team for a nice win. Hopefully we can get another round going!
