We are pleased to announce the launch of the Bentley Developer portal!
A gateway for all third-party developers’ to access the robust Bentley programming technologies for customizing their own solutions that seamlessly integrate with and extend Bentley product capabilities.
Further testing is required at Bentley Systems!
I visited that site, and clicked the Join button. The resulting page has an error...
I clicked the Login button and see this page of questions...
Whose applications does the site want to access — yours or mine?
What are GPR Service Builds? What is GPR Service read-only access?
Regards, Jon Summers LA Solutions

I agree it would be explained better.
It's standard approval of any Bentley service to your account. People working with iTwins know this approval confirmation, but for others, without further explanation (what about some "i icon bubble with details/explanation?) it's confusing.

thanks for the info.
First of all thanks for your quick feedback.
Yes, this is the first iteration and going forward we shall continuously work to enhance the experience as well as keep on adding new technical content.
Also we are looking for feedback from users to improve the portal.
This issue should be resolved by now and likely due to synchronization issues when bringing web resources online for the first time.
Another comments / findings:

More issues! I again attempted to join the program, using the portal's Join button...
The form won't accept my phone no.
An international phone country code has between one (US and Canada +1) and three digits (Ireland +353), but the verifier requires two, which is fine for the UK (+44) but not for many other countries. Remaining formatting wants a US-style code with groups of digits separated by hyphens. Whatever: why is it so inflexible?
The form doesn't like my name...

I would expect that when anybody is logged already (or entered e-mail is identified as existing), the web page has to check whether the person is BDN member already or not.
Also it has to be explained clearly that "join" is for people not in BDN program ... at least it's how understand the system.

Oopss ... really? I have not tried it. But when yes, maybe the author should to read (at least) wiki about phone numbers national conventions?
I think the only flexible enough format is +A B [C] [D], where +A is international code (anything from 1 to 3 digits), B is phone number, that can be alternatively split into groups used in a particular country (e.g. some people in Czech Republic write numbers like +420 123456789, but some +420 123 456 789). I prefer to use space as separator, not dash.

Still no explanation of GPR! There's no point in using cryptic acronyms if nobody outside your organisation understands them.
This link leads to a page about V8i programming, not CONNECT. Is that intentional?
