RIM is offering up an exclusive program to Qt developers to convince them to port or move their apps to BlackBerry 10. Qt apps are surprisingly easy to port to BlackBerry 10 using Cascades and result in some beautiful apps which is why RIM is most likely pushing so hard. RIM is offering this deal in conjunction with Qt Developer Days in Santa Clara this week and will be donating $100 to the Qt Project Hosting Foundation for each developer who submits their Qt app during the conference.
On top of that RIM has a registration form where eligible Qt developers can sign up to be approved for a BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha free. As an added bonus RIM will donate and additional one time $10,000 USD donation to the Qt Project Hosting Foundation if 50 eligible Qt apps are ported to BlackBerry 10 by the Qt Community and then posted and available for sale in BlackBerry App World by January 30, 2013. That means you can get your Dev Alpha and help give back to the Qt community. Better yet RIM might even let you double dip with the Port-A-Thon prizes next week.
