About the BlackBerry Elite Program
The BlackBerry® Elite Program for Developers aims to identify, recognize and reward key external developer influencers; who then in turn amplify the BlackBerry message and serve as an advocate within their own networks.
BlackBerry Elite members share their knowledge, experiences and feedback to facilitate the way in which developers can use the toolkits and services that BlackBerry provides. Approximately 125 people globally are recognized as a BlackBerry Elite member. Participation in the program is for one full year from the time of acceptance into the program. BlackBerry Elite members meet a specific set of criteria in order to receive this designation and it is evaluated on a yearly basis.
These Elite members are acknowledged for their on-going contributions to the developer community (through technology forums and user groups), applications submitted to BlackBerry World™ and for their enthusiasm around the BlackBerry platform.
