It's hard to believe, but the 2012 Tizen Developer Conference is just a week away. If you haven't done so, now is a great time to register.
For those who are joining us, there are a number of things happening (PDF link) during the days and nights of the conference.
First, if you are new to San Francisco and want to see some sights, there will be a walking tour on Monday, leaving from the hacker lounge at noon. Then, registration begins at 3:00 pm, Monday afternoon. Stick around and see Tizen demos in the Market Street Foyer, from companies that are active in HTML5 development. On top of that, we'll be giving away an Ultrabook. Just visit some demonstrations and be there for the drawing. The winner could be you!
The opening keynote will be by Imad Sousou from Intel and Jong-Deok Choi from Samsung, followed by a dinner sponsored by The Tizen Association. Afterwards, check out the Hacker's lounge, and try to beat Dawn Foster at Werewolf.
On Tuesday, we have more keynotes from Dave Johnson of Adobe Systems, Kiyohito Nagata from Docomo, and James Pearce from Facebook, followed by conference sessions. Tuesday afternoon, we'll have a booth crawl with local food and beer tastings, and another chance to win an ultrabook. Afterwards, there will be a reception at The California Academy of Sciences, sponsored by Intel, Samsung, and Vodafone. Tuesday night is more werewolf, and, of course, the hacker's lounge will be open with late night snacks and drinks.
Finally, on Wednesday we'll have more sessions, and finish with a hands-on Tizen developers lab.
For those who can't attend, we'll be streaming the keynotes and the sessions in Grand Ballroom A. Details will be available soon. The other tracks will have audio recording. Podcasts and slides will be available following the event.
Finally, we'd like to give a special thanks to all our sponsors:
