Intel AppLab London UK, MeeGo with a sprinkle of Nokia N950

Jul 6, 2011



Yesterday was the first ever Intel AppLab to hit the UK shores and it was a great success!!! Plenty of Willing Developers learning the Intel + MeeGo ways. By many Intel are now seen are the principal driving force behind MeeGo and Events like one certainly do not dissuade people from that point of view. Asking Intel they will state that the Linux Foundation are the ones steering the ship and they are merely along for the ride 🙂

    Session Content included:

  • Overview of the Intel AppUpSM center & Intel AppUpSM developer program
  • Overview of MeeGo, including technical MeeGo details
  • Introduction Intel AppUpSM Software Development Kits (SDKs)
  • Validation process including some tips & tricks and Introduction of Intel Developer Tools
  • Talk to Intel engineers about your specific code & questions with an information Q&A session

Developers freely asked App coding / submission questions that were answered by the Intel-llians (not a real word,Lol). There were also adequate networking opportunities between people Interested in Qt / Linux / iPhone (?) and those in Managerial positions.

Lucky attendees were also treated to a BRAND NEW ExoPC Tablet for MeeGo development, picture and specifications below:
