"Tizen is an open source, standards-based software platform" says tizen.org
, but there haven't been a lot of details up until recently. It's time now, with the Tizen 3.0 development starting, for the project to welcoming developers, artists, translators and other types of contributors to participate and improve Tizen, through a process modelled on existing Open Source projects and taking into account the needs of the companies making a business around it.
This session is meant to present and explain the Tizen development and governance model, starting with how an individual contributor can interact with existing developers, through the patch submission process all the way to how the Technical Steering Group and its working groups affect the project. It will also try to explain why this model was chosen and how it is helps the project achieve its goals. This session will be of interest to existing contributors as well as those who are thinking of starting to contribute to the Tizen project.
