Intro to the Tizen Community

The Tizen Community is made up of all of the people who collectively work on or with Tizen: Product contributors, kernel / distribution developers, release managers, quality assurance, application developers, users, vendors, and other contributors. Data gathered in the monthly metrics will form the basis for this presentation with details about membership, mailing list posts, bugs, IRC, active users and more. We'll use these numbers as a basis to talk about various ways to participate in the community.
