It's that time of year again! This year's Tizen Developer Conference  is June 2-4 in San Francisco.
The schedule was just announced , and this is shaping up to be another great conference. As always, the content will be technically oriented and geared towards Tizen app and platform developers. This is the single best place to go in order to learn about Tizen, because it's the one place all of the experts converge.
If you went to last year's conference, there was a lot of focus on developing Tizen apps. This year, we'll again have a lot for app developers, but there's a twist. What kind of app developer?
You see, there's a lot more variety in Tizen devices this year. Yes, there will be sessions on Tizen app development on mobile phones, including native and HTML5 apps, porting from other platforms, and using middleware runtimes like Marmalade and Sencha to deploy Tizen apps. But we'll also be talking about app development for wearable devices and TVs. I've said before , Tizen has always been about providing a codebase that works for multiple form factors and screen sizes, so this should come as no surprise.
There's good news for you platform developers as well. Of course, we'll have sessions for platform developers who want to work on Tizen source code. We'll also talk about the IVI platform, and are really excited for a new track on using Tizen for the Internet of Things.
We really believe that Tizen is an awesome platform, and provides an excellent base for hardware hackers building the next big thing. This is a good place to learn about it.
I'm really looking forward to this conference. The content is always top notch, and the program committee works very hard to ensure the sessions are technical and relevant.
