Over 100 hands-on recipes to develop, deploy, and debug applications using the exciting Tizen platform
Tizen is an open-source Linux-based software platform for a variety of devices, from smartphones and watches to in-vehicle infotainment. Application development is based on open standards and HTML5 is the primary development technology. The Tizen project creates new business opportunities for mobile and embedded applications as it is supported by a Technical Steering Group (TSG) composed of Samsung and Intel. Samsung has recently announced a shift from Android to Tizen, and Tizen-based applications will soon be known as path breakers.
