Tizen Overview and Architecture - Carsten Haitzler, Samsung Electronics

Tizen is an open source, standards-based software platform supported by leading mobile operators, device manufacturers, and silicon suppliers for multiple device categories, including smartphones, tablets, netbooks, in-vehicle infotainment devices, smart TVs, and more. It provides a robust and flexible environment for application developers, based on HTML5. With HTML5's robust capabilities and cross platform flexibility, it is rapidly becoming the preferred development environment for mobile apps and services. The Tizen SDK and API allow developers to use HTML5 and related web technologies to write applications that run across multiple device segments.

Tizen 1.0 Larkspur has been released at the end of April 2012. It includes source codes of the Tizen software platform as well as SDK. Now, Tizen 2.0 alpha source code and SDK are available. In this talk, we will look into the Tizen mobile architecture and its major components with latest updates.

Tizen SDK and Web Development - Cheng Luo, Samsung Electronics

In this talk, Cheng will walk through version 2.0 of the Tizen SDK, the alpha version of which was released to developers in September; the web app development process, Tizen IDE and latest version of the SDK tools will be explained to give web developers an overview of Tizen platform.

 The second half of the talk will take a practical approach, focusing on how to port HTML 5 applications to Tizen. Topics covered will include tips and tricks for porting apps and how to make the most of Tizen’s extensive support for W3C/ HTML5 standards.

Cheng will also discuss how the Tizen device APIs are used to ‘fill in the gaps’ in the functionality offered by the W3C APIs.

Tizen's Graphical Libraries: EFL - Gustavo Barbieri, ProFUSION

Tizen, the newest project hosted by Linux Foundation, is a Linux-based open source platform that uses Enlightenment Foundation Libraries (EFL) as part of graphics and user interface stack. The presentation will show the current state of EFL, and also will present its latest and future features, including the Javascript API (EasyUI) and a physics library integration. Since developing applications for embedded devices has several constraints, like lower performance of CPUs and GPUs, and not a lot of memory available, the latest improvements on performance and low memory footprint will also presented, as well as highlighted during the whole presentation. The attendant will see some reasons why EFL was chosen as the graphical library of Tizen.
This talk is focused on  a technical audience, as well as business people, that may be  interested in knowing EFL and Tizen a bit deeper.

Tizen IVI - Geoffroy VanCutsem, Intel

The use of Linux in car infotainment systems (IVI) has become the next evolutionary step for the vehicle ecosystem.  While this allows the car design process to benefit from the fast pace of innovation seen in the mobile and gaming worlds, it also requires an evolution of Linux itself to meet the unique needs of this new and exciting market.  In this talk I will be speaking about some of the IVI technologies being developed to address some of these gaps, including an architecture for providing vehicle information services, lightweight rendering with the use of wayland, remote rendering surfaces, and resource management using new systemd capabilities.
