Qt for Tizen on TDC'13

The second annual Tizen Developer Conference was held in San Francisco from 22 May to 24 May 2013. The conference engaged a worldwide audience and was the perfect place to demonstrate the progress of the community-driven port of Qt for Tizen.

After hours of hard work Tomasz and the other Qt contributors were able to cross compile Qt 5.1 for Tizen ARM devices just on time for the beginning of the conference. Several QML example applications including the famous Qt Cinematic Experience demo were presented on Samsung reference device RD-PQ with Tizen 2.1 Nectarine. The demo applications are working smooth although the port is in very early stage of development.
