Bengaluru,: First Tizen developer summit begins in India

Bengaluru, July 30 (IANS) Linux Foundation on Thursday said that over 1,000 developers participated in the Tizen Developer Summit (TDS), which began in Bengaluru from Wednesday.

“TDS is being held in India for the first time and has attracted companies and organizations such as InMobi, Unity, Airtel and Nasscom,” said Linux Foundation.

TDS is an annual global event sponsored by Samsung Electronics and Tizen Association to assist local app and platform developers interested in contributing to the growth of the Tizen operating system which Samsung uses in its lower price band smartphones.

“TDS 2015 Bengaluru is significant as nearly half of the apps in the Tizen Store are created by developers from India. This reflects the enormous opportunity in India where a large base of platform and app developers continues to show significant interest to develop Tizen OS and high-quality apps,” said Samsung India’s chief technology officer Aloknath De.

“This is also the first Summit which is being organized in the backdrop of commercially available products, for example, the Samsung Z1 smart phone, which sold over one million units since its launch and Tizen Operating System powered SUHD TV which was recently launched in India,” he added.
