The Tizen Developer Conference took place in San Fransisco, on May 22-24, 2013. We’e already seen a few Tizen demos from the conference, but slides and media files (mostly audio, but also some videos) are now available for keynotes and technical presentations.
As this was just the second Tizen conference, there were still many sessions dealing with overall structure of the operating system, and explaining how to get started either with native or web development, such as:
- An Overview of the Tizen Native Application Framework
- Introduction of Tizen SDK minimal web development tools
- Tizen Design Guidelines and User Experience
- Tizen Overview and Architecture
- Tizen.org Web Infrastructure
Tizen enters a mobile world dominated by Android and iOS, so several sessions targeted app developers used to work with either operating systems in order to show them how to port their existing apps to Tizen:
- Bringing Android Apps to Tizen
- From iOS to Tizen: A Novel Approach to Porting
- Entering Tizen world for iOS/Android developers
- Porting iOS and Android Applications to Tizen
- Publishing to Tizen using the automated conversion/repackaging of existing android apps
Of course, they were also sessions, probably a bit more technical, focused on development of specific features:
- Next generation BlueZ & Bluetooth Smart devices
- Mobile OpenGL game porting to Tizen: hands-on experience
- Tizen Telephony Framework in Tizen 2.1: what’s new?
- Approach of In-Vehicle Infotainment development on open source software
And many more, as media files and slides are available for nearly 60 sessions and keynotes.
There’s also a 2-hour developer’s lab (Devlab) session entitled “Creating a Tizen Application: Start to Finish” divided into four parts:
- Tizen Contest Announcement overview with Brian Warner and Distribution of Tizen USB Drives with Wesley Osaze
- Tizen Native API Overview with Hod Greeley
- Tizen Web API Overview with Bob Spencer
- Live Code Session Overview with Stewart Christie
