This is a 21 years old and over event due to alcohol being served at the event.
Who should go to this? - This is a technology intro/overview for developers. This operating system is still alpha and what we are looking at is early stage and there may be major additions in the future, like native support (or not). With any new technology expect early bugs and no guarantees, anything can happen or not happen to new systems. This is not a marketing or future prognostication oriented meetup. This meeting is for developers who like to get their hands on early stage and enjoy the uncertainties and fun that come with that territory.
Some history and ok, just a bit of marketing background about Tizen as well as other new Operating systems up for 2013.
Hod Greely of Samsung will give an overview about the Tizen SDK, Samsung Developers program & how we engage with the developer community. This is an early intro to Tizen operating system in Alpha stage. This is a technical and developer look meet-up.
Tizen is an open source, standards-based software platform supported by leading mobile operators, device manufacturers, and silicon suppliers for multiple device categories such as smartphones, tablets, netbooks, in-vehicle infotainment devices, and smart TVs. Tizen offers an innovative operating system, applications, and a user experience that consumers can take from device to device.
The Tizen project resides within the Linux Foundation and is governed by a Technical Steering Group. The Technical Steering Group is the primary decision-making body for the open source project, with a focus on platform development and delivery, along with the formation of working groups to support device verticals.
The Tizen Association has been formed to guide the industry role of Tizen, including gathering of requirements, identification and facilitation of service models, and overall industry marketing and education.
