  1. 1. What is TIZEN?  Tizen is a Linux-based operating system for multiple device, including smartphones, tablets, netbooks, smart TVs, and more.  Tizen is developed by a community of developers, under open source governance, and is open to all members who wish to participate.  Tizen is a project within the Linux Foundation and is governed by a Technical Steering Group (TSG) and The Tizen Association.
  2. 2. More about  The Tizen Association was formed to guide the industry role of Tizen. Members of the Tizen Association represent every major sector of the mobility industry and every region of the world. Current members include telecommunications network operators, OEMs and manufacturers: Fujitsu, Huawei, Intel, Orange S.A., Panasonic Mobile Communications, Samsung, SK Telecom, Vodafone…  While the Tizen Association decides what needs to be done in Tizen, the Technical Steering Group determines what code is actually incorporated into the operating system to accomplish those goals.
  3. 3.  Tizen provides application development tools based on the JavaScript libraries jQuery and jQuery Mobile.  Since version 2.0, a native application framework is also available, based on Open Services Platform from the Bada platform.  The software development kit (SDK) allows developers to use HTML5 and related Web technologies to write applications that run on supported devices.
  4. 4. History  Tizen roots back to the Samsung Linux Platform (SLP) and the LiMo Project and in 2013 Samsung merged its homegrown Bada project into Tizen.  Samsung's collaboration with the EFL project was known as LiMo for years. It was renamed Tizen when Intel joined the project in September 2011, after leaving the MeeGo project.  On January 1, 2012, the LiMo Foundation was renamed Tizen Association.  On April 30, 2012, Tizen released version 1.0, code-named Larkspur.  On February 18, 2013, Tizen released version 2.0, code-named Magnolia. It offered a Web-based framework with more features, better HTML5/W3C API support and more device APIs, multi-process Webkit2-based Web Runtime, better security for Web applications and support for OpenGL ES.  On June 3, 2014, Tizen released version 2.3 alpha.
  5. 5.  Samsung Z and Galaxy Gear devices are the first released with Tizen as their main OS.  In May 2013, Samsung released the firmware source code for their NX2000 and NX300 cameras. The architecture of this source code is based on Tizen.  On June 2014, at the Tizen Developer Conference 2014 Samsung showed a prototype of a Tizen based smart TV's.
  6. 6. On July, 2013, Samsung announced Tizen App Challenge, with over $4 million in cash prizes. The skills-based contest -- designed to motivate and reward app developers using the Tizen mobile platform to develop innovative, creative, functional and original applications in both "Game" and "Non- Game" categories -- has accelerated the Tizen mobile ecosystem and expanded the Tizen Store. Submissions were evenly split between native Tizen apps and HTML5 apps, showing strong momentum for both development environments.
  7. 7. Licensing model  The operating system consists of many open source components. A number of components internally developed by Samsung (e.g., boot animation, calendar, task manager, music player applications) are, however, released under the Flora License, essentially a BSD- or Apache-style license except granting patents to "Tizen Certified Platform" only.  Flora is not approved by the Open Source Initiative. Therefore, it is unclear whether developers can legally use the native application framework and its graphical components to make GPL applications. Source code access is guaranteed however.  Its SDK is built on top of open source components, but the entire SDK has been published under a non-open-source Samsung license.
  8. 8. So  Tizen is an open and flexible operating system built from the ground up to address the needs of all stakeholders of the mobile and connected device ecosystem.  Mobile operators can work with device partners to customize the operating system and user experience to meet the needs of specific customer segments or demographics.  Tizen breathes fresh air into the mobile market by enabling innovation from both industry leaders and individual enthusiasts.  It is easy to get started with Tizen development. The main development language is HTML5.
