Just had to come and shout it from the rooftops...I've been tweeting about BlackBerry for a good 3 months, and looks like someone at RIM noticed. I got an email today that literally made me cry...tears of joy.
Sarah here, on behalf of BlackBerry. We are so excited you want to learn more about app development in order to create tools that will help educators! We couldnt be happier that you will be attending BlackBerry 10 Jam World Tour as well!

If youre willing to let us help in this way, please read and sign the attached waiver and well go from there. Looking forward to hearing back from you soon, thanks again for being a part of #TeamBlackBerry!
Talk about RIM empowering your success. Thanks THOR, thanks RIM, but most importantly, thanks to CrackBerry, I wouldn't love BlackBerry as much without you.
Congrats to you, but what jumps out at me is that RIM is obviously aware of what's going on with regular people. There has been much criticism in the past, but RIM has been making many moves recently that shows that they're not the 'out of touch' company that people have accused them of being in the past.
You're obviously happy about the swag. But RIM is obviously happy to have someone who is vocal and has the talent to do something important. Aside from the swag, be sure to check in at the Blackberry Developer forums where you'll find some other amazing people willing to help you out with any questions you might have.
Congratulations! It's great to see RIM support its loyal customers, and helping out a school as well. I noticed you're in California, I've read all about the things they do here in Canada, it's nice to know they help educators in other countries as well!
Trust me, if i didnt need one my self, i'd be the first to pass it along to some one in need...whats funny is that i just got an insurance replacement in the mail last week. Now my trusty Torch 9800 is going to my wife's brother in law who has a old 8900 curve that is barely hanging together by some rubber and a thread.
