Tizen Mini-Summit [clear filter]
Tuesday, September 17


Introduction to Tizen - Chris Norman, Intel
Tizen is an open source, standards-based software platform supported by leading mobile operators, device manufacturers, and silicon suppliers.  It can be used for  multiple computing platforms including smartphones, In-vehicle infotainment (IVI), smart TV, notebooks, tablets, and more. In this session, we will outline the vision and goals of the project, and give pointers to the technical details, architecture and building blocks needed to develop Tizen OS based solutions. We'll also give you an understanding of the native and Web/HTML5 based development environment offered by Tizen.

Tizen 3.0 Open Governance - Thiago Macieira, Intel & Guy Martin, Samsung
"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.

Enabling OpenCL Acceleration of Web Applications - Tasneem Brutch, Samsung
WebCL, currently being standardized by Khronos, provides a JavaScript binding for OpenCL, and so enables significant cross platform acceleration of compute and graphics intensive Web applications.  The WebCL API allows Web application developers to benefit from native acceleration through heterogeneous
parallelization; it opens up, for future looking Web-based platforms such as Tizen, new application areas such as: augmented reality, video processing, computational photography and 3D gaming.

The presentation will consist of WebCL tutorial, use cases and demos, and status update of the WebCL API standardization, implementation, applications and utilities.

The presentation outline is as follows:
* WebCL motivation, tutorial, demos and use cases
* WebCL standardization:  Status and roadmap
* WebCL API:  Security requirements and provisions
* WebCL Kernel Validator
* OpenCL to WebCL Translator utility
* Experimental integration of WebCL prototypes into browser engines
* Questions and Answers

Tizen Native App Development, Hod Greeley, Samsung
Tizen applications can be built using high performance web technologies or "natively", using an extensive C++ framework.  In this session, we'll take a deeper look at developing native apps with the Tizen SDK.

We'll cover the useful specifics of the development tools, walk through creating a project, discuss the native framework, show how to rapidly layout a UI, and wire it all together.  Attendees will leave with a solid understanding of how Tizen supports common mobile paradigms.  We'll finish with a discussion of testing/debugging and a number of useful tips and tricks to get you started right in building natively for Tizen.
