Tizen Rules St. Petersburg This Week with Workshops and a 2 Day Hackathon.

OK, so you want to be a Tizen programmer, developer or just a guru? This week you’ll have a brilliant excuse to visit St. Petersburg in Russia. Workshops, a challenge and many people to meet!

Off-topic though pretty important too: It’s one of the most beautiful cities you can visit (and of my most favorite) so just let the future of Tizen technology be an important excuse for a trip, say to the Hermitage! That would be a great place to relax after workshops and that 2 day challenge!

But of course it’s the Tizen technology that will draw you to Saint Petersburg. On the first day, which is free to join and open to all, training courses will help you to speed up your place in the Tizen landscape. Those workshops are not just by the nice people from the FRUCT at the State Electrotechnical University but it’s also supported by experts of Samsung and Intel. And of course you can join the Hackathon!


The Hackathon is not just a challenge, it’s a marathon for the best! Participants are given 2 days. Two days to create a project from scratch to (working) prototype and present it to the jury! It’s not just about non-stop coding but also about teamwork, being competitive and being successful! You’ll be taken care of with smart food for the designers and anyone working on the project!
Tizen DevLab will be held November 28, 2013 (Thursday) Those that are participating in DevLab will not only get the opportunity to attend lectures and workshops! The workshops will be given by professionals from Intel and Samsung and they’ll be around to give you individual advice on the development of a system of Tizen. You” also get some training flash drives with a full set of customized software for the development of a system of Tizen
You are welcome at building number 5 of the St. Petersburg State Electrotechnical University “LETI”, at Prof. Popov, 3 ( ​​this is the entrance ). There re will be a video conferencing room on the 1st floor. .
And please: Don’t come without a laptop!There are some the minimum system requirements , with a pre-installed version of with the correct version Tizen SDK . It’s best to register beforehand as the number of places is limited!
