Hanging out at the 19th Hole, Clement Street:
It’s a wrap, deets below.
“Tizen Developer Conference Culminates With Introduction of New Devices, Device Profiles, Developer Tools and Internet of Things Roadmap
Capacity Number of Attendees Witness the Unveiling of the World’s First Tizen Smartphone, New Tizen IVI System and Tizen Smart Television SDK
SAN FRANCISCO, June 5, 2014 — The Tizen Developer Conference (#TDCSF14), the world’s largest event focused exclusively on the growing developer ecosystem around the Tizen open source operating system for converged devices, today marked the closing of the third-annual TDC event in San Francisco. The event saw a record number of developers and media attendees witness the official unveiling of the world’s first Tizen smartphone, the Samsung Z, set to launch in Q3 of 2014 in Russia. A number of other new device prototypes, software, device profiles and developer tools were also on display at the event.
Here it is, down at the Hilton in Union Square:
Look it’s the new Android-free Samsung Z
Coming to a car near you – a Land Rover in this case:
And Intel is on the scene, pushing its very inexpensive NUCs, the so-called Next Unit of Computing:
Do I know what’s going to happen with Tizen or the other newer OSes?
No, not at all.
Anyway, the big show ends today – see you there (again)!
Intel + Samsung = Tizen, sort of.
The big developer conference starts today:
Tizen Developer Conference 2014
The 3rd annual Tizen Developer Conference is a technical conference for Tizen developers, App developers, ISVs, Platform designers, Operators, OEMs, Hardware vendors, Software vendors, Open source enthusiasts, and anyone engaged in Tizen.
Tizen development has been primarily focused on mobile and in-vehicle infotainment the past few years, at the developer conference last year we focused largely on building our ecosystem and application development around these platforms.
Tizen is expanding beyond Mobile and IVI into a plethora of new devices, join us at this year’s developer event to explore the new opportunities Tizen is creating in this new era of the Internet of Things.
This year’s event will be held at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square from June 2-4. Visit our “Attendee Information” page for more information on the venue.
What to expect
Never been to a Tizen Developer Conference? Wondering what to expect this year?
Tizen Developer Conference is all about developer enablement. From keynotes to sessions to developer labs, the goal is to transfer knowledge from the world’s experts in Tizen to you.
At a high level, the keynotes help put Tizen into context within the industry. First, representatives from the Tizen Technical Steering Group will talk about the platform and future directions. You’ll also hear from Mark Bryan of iControl, one of the leading home automation, putting Tizen into context within the Internet of Things. In addition, Professor Lam from Stanford University will discuss how compelling apps can be easily created for wearable technologies like the Gear 2.
CFP, and are excited to share the conference schedule with you. We’ll have a broad variety of topics for app and platform developers alike. At a high level:
Platform development, for those working on Tizen source code.
App development, with sessions on HTML5 and the native APIs.
Tutorials and community, which includes porting Tizen to new devices, how to use the SDK, how to create
Tizen system images, etc.
TV, for more info on the Tizen TV architecture and app development.
IVI, which covers In-Vehicle Infotainment.
Ecosystem, which includes porting from other platforms to Tizen.
Wearables, for those developing apps for wearable devices.
IoT, which covers Tizen for Internet of Things.
This is the single largest gathering of Tizen developers worldwide. It’s a great place to expand your knowledge and refine your skills.
The Developer Lab:
What do you do with what you learned in the sessions? How about some hands-on implementation training?
Near the end of the conference we’ll have a longer session dedicated to Tizen app developers. This will be a hands-on session where you will learn how the Tizen app development process works, from setting up the SDK to developing and deploying an app.
Two men enter, one man leave just like in Thunderdome.
But I didn’t actually watch the whole thing, so you tell me:
Here’s another story from the Central Market area:
“Yesterday afternoon I was assaulted by 5-6 young men on Sixth and Natoma in the Tenderloin. In broad daylight they surrounded me, tried and failed to grab my wallet, phone and backpack but made off with my 1999 green Cannondale road bike. I’ve attached a picture of a similar bike though mine had traditional silver rims and a black Terry saddle. If you see this bike for sale on craigslist or anywhere around San Francisco/Oakland please call the police immediately. They are aware of this group and, frankly, are fed up with this bullshit.
If you were involved in the violent, cowardly mugging on Monday August 20th you have not gained much. I am in good health and will pursue this until justice is served. These actions bring digrace on your families, community, and the city of San Francisco. My only regret is that I didn’t land another kick when the SIX of you had me pinned in the street.”

On a related note, here’s how you get your stuff back from the corrupt Twitterloin, if you’re willing to deal with fences.
Oh, and thanks so much for moving in to the hood, Twitter. Let us know if you want anything else from the City and County, you know, like another shuttle bus service to CalTrain, you know, to supplement the two you already have. Oh, and thanks for not paying the 2004 Gavin Newsom tax – that was very clever of you. Oh and thanks for the $2,000,000 Jane Kim slush fund you’re paying for – the non-existent WiFi, you know, part of what you promised, you know, instead of paying your taxes, well, I’m sure it would have worked perfectly.
Do Euros really sit around in snorkel gear just waiting for the Google Maps car to show up?
Check it out – a few shots earlier, you can see them reading the paper while waiting in folding chairs. Then the chase begins:

Well, it’s better to have playfully irate frogmen after you than the Federal police…
