Spend Some Time With the Tizen Community at FOSDEM 2016

For the 5th year in a row, the Tizen community will meet at FOSDEM: one of the most important free and open source software conferences in Europe. Members of the Tizen community from all over the world, including South Korea, Poland, UK, Bulgaria, and France will converge  on January 31 and February 1, 2016 at ULB Solbosch Campus, Brussels, Belgium.

Here’s what you can expect from the Tizen community, this year:

  • Meet Tizen developers from around the world for discussions.
  • Interact with demos at the EFL/Tizen booth.
  • Dine with Tizen developers at the community dinner.
  • Learn and discover about free and open source software.
