At the recent Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit (2012) there was a full track devoted to the Tizen Operating System.

Here are the links for the separate sessions that have sessions information, slides and some videos:

    • Introduction to the Tizen Community and Architecture Overview

The Tizen Community is made up of all of the people who collectively work on or with Tizen: Product contributors, kernel / distribution developers, release managers, quality assurance, application developers, users, vendors, and other contributors. Data gathered in the monthly metrics will form the basis for this presentation with details about membership, mailing list posts, bugs, IRC, active users and more. We’ll use these numbers as a basis to talk about various ways to participate in the community. This presentation provides an overview of Tizen architecture and its core subsystems for the mobile platforms like handsets and tablets. The emphasis for Tizen architecture is WebAPI to ensure applications work across different architectures and different profiles. We will highlight what to expect in the source code for Tizen. We will provide our thinking on IVI and where Tizen would be going forward.

    • HTML5, WebApp Development & WebAPIs

Tizen’s key value proposition is HTML5 and Web application development. This talk will provide you all the details about the Tizen Web APIs and how application developers can take advantage of the APIs to build applications. There are many extensions, and we have adopted early drafts of specifications where applicable. The current APIs rely on open standards and provide full access to the mobile platform and its functionality so that you can write any application using Web APIs.

    • Introduction to Tizen SDK

A Tizen application is based on the standard web technology such as JavaScript, CSS, HTML5, and W3C widget packaging. With the support of rich Tizen Device API and Web UI framework, developers can create variety of applications which run in multiple devices. So, traditional web developers can leverage their knowledge in developing Tizen applications which utilize native device features. The Tizen SDK is a comprehensive set of tools for developing Tizen applications. It consists of IDE, emulator, installer, toolchain, sample code, documentation, and so on. With the Tizen SDK, a developer can easily develop Tizen web application during the whole development cycle from installation to publishing. The Tizen SDK provides the same web development experience such as previewing in browser and debugging based on a web inspector. The Tizen SDK provides rich templates for web application, powerful JavaScript and CSS syntax checker, and tiny HTML WYSIWYG builder as well improving programming productivity. A developer can test his web application on the high performance emulator or web simulator on his host PC such as Windows and Linux. In this talk, we give some tutorials on developing Tizen applications using the Tizen SDK.

    • Tizen Native Display Layer – EFL, Architecture and Usage

EFL (The Enlightenment Foundation Libraries) were written to support the development of Enlightenment, and ultimately became a complete toolkit for making applications for desktops and especially lower powered devices like phones and tablets. The focus on achieving great effects, ease of programming and lean efficiency has attracted some major players to EFL, such as Samsung Electronics. EFL is being used in development for their next generation devices. Find out about EFL.

    • Intro to Tizen Telephony

Tizen’s key value proposition is HTML5 and Web application development. This talk will provide you all the details about the Tizen Web APIs and how application developers can take advantage of the APIs to build applications. There are many extensions, and we have adopted early drafts of specifications where applicable. The current APIs rely on open standards and provide full access to the mobile platform and its functionality so that you can write any application using Web APIs.

 

    • Upcoming Technologies: Wayland & oFono

We have a number of upcoming technologies that we plan to use in upcoming versions of Tizen. In this presentation, we’ll talk about two of those technologies: Wayland and oFono. Wayland is a display server protocol with compositing window managers to communicate directly with applications and video hardware. In this talk, we will discuss our current progress with Wayland and our future plans. The oFono open source telephony stack is a complete and simple solution for everything around telephony. oFono reached its 1.0 milestone a few months ago with a lot of development to create a rich and feature complete open source telephony stack for GSM/UMTS. We will talk about advanced features, like support for CDMA and LTE and the integration with Bluetooth and the Handsfree/Headset and Dialup Networking profiles.
