London DevLab - 13 December 2014

Are you ready to bring your Tizen mobile app to life?

Tizen Project and BeMyApp are thrilled to bring you the Tizen DevLab Series - Europe and US edition! We are traveling across the globe from Silicon Valley to the streets of London, and Paris for an all-day workshop to bring you up to speed with Tizen OS.

Do you have what it takes to create the next Tizen mobile app? Or do you already have an app that you would like to have on the Tizen app store? From novice to expert, programmers to innovators - this workshop is for you. Tizen and Samsung experts will help you one-on-one to bring your ideas to life and make your apps dreams a reality. Prizes and food on us!

Think you have what it takes? Create a Tizen mobile app, then submit it to the Tizen Store and enter our Tizen DevLabs Challenge after the event - you could win cash or a Samsung Gear S watch. Be a part of the evolution of the mobile experience with Samsung and BeMyApp!

Challenge Prizes

  • $1,250 for the top two best new apps and the top two existing apps that have been ported to Tizen and submitted to the Tizen App Store, as evaluated by a panel of judges.
