Introducing the Visual Studio for Mac Tizen Extension

Jay Cho


I am very pleased to announce the release of the Tizen extension for Visual Studio for Mac. There are tons of Mac users out there, and until now it has been tricky to use Mac machines to develop Tizen .NET applications.
Visual Studio for Mac Extension for Tizen was introduced at the Samsung Developer Conference 2019 held on Oct 29-30 in San Jose, CA, and is now available.

Installation guide

Check out this guide for information about prerequisites and installation.

Prerequisites includes an important notice about installing Oracle Java Development Kit (JDK) 8 or OpenJDK 12 to use Tizen Baseline SDK. Be sure to use the correct version, or you may have trouble installing and using the extension.

With the new Tizen extension, it should now be less tricky to develop Tizen .NET applications on a Mac. Mac users, try it and let us know what you think!
