The world’s first national level MeeGo summit will be held in Tampere, Finland, from April 15-16th 2011. The 2-day developer-focused event is packed with MeeGo and Qt sessions, featuring top speakers such as Valtteri Halla from Nokia and Carsten Munk from the MeeGo community. Registration at summit.meegonetwork.fi is free of charge.
The three main tracks provide themes for many audiences:
- Core & Future – Apps and possibilities with the latest tools
- Hacks & Tricks – Hardware inventions and unconventional experiments
- Biz Buzz – Delivering products in the MeeGo ecosystem
”MeeGo Summit FI is an excellent opportunity for developers to meet and learn more about the local MeeGo community”, says Munk, and continues: ”You’ll get firsthand experience of cutting edge MeeGo technologies and the people developing them.”
Developers wishing to compete for Nokia and Intel hardware should sign up for the summit’s Meegathon competition. Rules are available online at summit.meegonetwork.fi.
The summit also provides developers the opportunity to gain Qt certification.
MeeGo is an open source next generation platform for mobile and embedded devices. Now a Linux Foundation project, MeeGo was originally founded by Nokia and Intel. The summit is organized by MeeGo Network Finland and COSS, the Finnish Centre for Open Source Solutions, operated by Hermia Ltd.
