Event Details

Tizen is a new operating system. Samsung Electronics and Intel (among others) are launching it. You can use web technologies to write applications that run across multiple device segments. Phones will be released in Q2/Q3 this year.

So it is your chance to get in early. We will have developer devices for all attendees to use.

After TDC

Join us for a DevLab followed by a Hack Competition alongside the first Tizen Developer Conference.

Is this a hackathon?

It is very similar to a hackathon. We have the educational DevLab preceding it and then we are not expecting you to form teams. It is ok to work alone. So we decided to call it a hack competition. We're also not judging on buisness model.
