Hey Devs, do you want to create new apps or even port your existing apps to a new platform that you can then earn revenue from? You can use HTML/CSS and JavaScript to create apps for wearable devices and smartphones. You can also build native apps for Smartphone is you wish.

The Samsung Open Source Group (OSG) have created a Getting started guide that has been tested on Linux Mint 17, and most of it should also work for Ubuntu. It shows you the prerequisites that you need as well as showing you step by step Instructions on how to install the Tizen SDK. You get to setup a test device and get familiar to the new environment that you will be soon calling your new home.
