Another equally impressive demo at the recent Tizen Developer Conference in San Francisco was that of the upcoming Tizen Animation Framework. The quick demo, presented by Samsung’s Executive Vice President, J-D Choi, shows an EFL-based (Elightenment Foundation Libraries) accelerated multi-touch user interface, scaling and rotating a running video, without dropping frames.


In one of the keynotes on the recent Tizen Developer Conference in San Francisco, Samsung’s Executive Vice President, J-D Choi gave a demo of purely HTML5/CSS3 written apps on Tizen. The impressive HTML5 demos were shown live, running on a prototype device (which several folks are saying was a Samsung Galaxy S II). The demos presented were the three different Gallery user interfaces, Media Cube, CSS-based photo transition, and the upcoming Phone interface.


Ok folks, in a few days, the first Tizen Developer Conference will kick off at San Francisco. I’ve been in several Maemo and MeeGo developer conferences and although each one has its unique flavor, they are always informative and fun.

The last MeeGo conference was held in the same venue, the Hyatt Regency – San Francisco. While I would expect that not much has changed in the hotel, I’m sure Amy Leeland, Intel’s Open Source Events Manager, must have concocted something unique for this Tizen Developer Conference.

I’ve decided to create a guide to help those who are attending the event for the first time.
