Samsung Developers at Tizen Developer Conference 2012
Blog May 10, 2012
The first Tizen Developer Conference was held at the Hyatt Regency, San Francisco from the 7th to 9th of May. Attendees ranged from developers, platform designers, operators, OEMs and hardware/software vendors to open source enthusiasts. The event offered an excellent opportunity to learn about Tizen, the technology involved and HTML5 app development for Tizen devices. 

As a host sponsor of the conference, Samsung operated a dedicated booth and also provided technical sessions to introduce the platform and web-based application development. At the booth, Samsung introduced web-based applications created using the Tizen SDK. These apps, developed by Samsung and some of our media partners, showed off features such as WebGL, telephony and other Tizen native features.

The Hands-On Lab was on the last day of the conference, providing a training session for web application development. During the session, we showed how to develop web applications with the Tizen SDK and how to debug a web application with the new and improved emulator. At the end of the session, each developer was given a Tizen reference device, so they can investigate the platform in more detail.

The Hands-On Lab sessions were based on the recently released Tizen ‘Larkspur’ build, providing new complimentary components, as well as source code that focuses on enhancing stability and performance. The SDK includes an enhanced IDE, a web-based simulator for debugging and an emulator with improved performance. You can download it at the Tizen Developer Site. (http://developer.tizen.org)
