Developers: take this survey, and get a chance to win a free BlackBerry Z30!

BlackBerry Z30
By Kevin Michaluk on 24 Apr 2014 01:40 pm EDT


Hey developers! If you have ten minutes to spare today and happen to want a new smartphone (who doesn't?), then we have something for you: The Developer Economics Survey. Brought to you by our friends at Vision Mobile, this quick survey focuses on developer questions around the things that are important to developers: platforms, frameworks, customers, and more.

Of course, your answers will help Vision Mobile build their next report on app development today, but we know you really want to know what you might be able to win for your time.

How's a new smartphone sound? You could win a brand-new BlackBerry Z30! Also up for grabs are an iPhone 5s, a Samsung Galaxy S5, and a Nokia Lumia 930, as well as some other cool gizmos.



Wow a little late. I took the Survey 3 Weeks ago.

Lol. It's not a "news" post. We worked with Vision Mobile directly on this promotion, and today was the day we intended to post it. So... yeah... we arrived precisely when we wanted to. Great that you took it though!


Haha Sorry if it sounds like a complaint. This was not my intention.

Anyway I hope this Year the "Overall Numbers" in the Survey will be much better for the BlackBerry OS10. It still has great Potential. I hope the SDK in May will bring some other, not yet officially listed, great Stuff to Play with. *FingersCrossed*

Hey I know you,dropian for symbian

Symbian is still and always my favourite Os. Nokia 808


I love these surveys... They ask you questions where, much of the time, the only honest answer I can give is "none of the choices you presented me with." This one has one of those on the first page.

"Winning" an iPhone 5s is more like losing.

Posted via CB10


No - winning a different platform for dev work gives me the hardware that I may not be inclined to spend money on. Devs can't earn a living by being fanboys and people who have seen my BlackBerry and Android work have asked if I do apps for iOS and that will be a learning curve for me that also comes with real costs.

Posted via CB10 on my Z30


I use an iPad and MacInCloud for my iOS builds. Works pretty well.

Easier than buying a Mac just to use for development. When I was shopping for laptops last - they didn't have any laptops that could even compare to mythlogic. I've also had hardware issues with apple - so really hesitated to buy a laptop from them.

Man I wish Blackberry was able to convert iOS apps to Bar files similar (or better) than how APK's can. Then we'd have the best of all worlds.
If someone could get on that, it would be awesome. You'd have the best hardware (in my opinion) coupled with all possible software. How could that not be a home run?


I'm not a developer but would love a new Z30 :o)

Keep up the good work all BB10 developers...


Took this survey and because I'm not an app developer or involved with app making of any sort then I won't be eligible to go in the running to win any prizes #fail

I filled it out, I only started to dive into APP development, so a lot of it was guessing, or i don't knows. But, we all have to start somewhere.


Done! Thanks Kev

Exciting that dev feedback is wanted

I hope win the Z30 :D


just done. I don't know how the survey record our information for selection Z30 ?


Survey is a bit of a joke. You spend 10-12 minutes bit based on the way you answer certain questions when you get to the end you aren't eligible for the prizes. If that's the case they shouldn't ask you to complete the rest of the survey.

I noticed that disclaimer also. I think for phone prizes u would still be eligible

My Z10's battery is not good at all. What can be done to make it more stronger?

Posted via CB10


You cannot make it more stronger but you can lower the screen brightness and close apps you are not using.

Posted via CB10


But I wanted one too!
