Are you a developer with a passion for mobile? Have a web or mobile app you’d like to port? Don’t have an app yet, but want to make one using HTML5 for Tizen, a new open-source mobile OS brought to you by the Linux Foundation? This hack’s for you!
Join BeMyApp for a Tizen HTML5 Devlab & Hack. We’ll have the SDK, support and leadership you need, and we’ll be awarding cash prizes for the best apps created and ported during the hack.
*Please note that YOU will retain ownership copyright on all of your code and ideas.
