Jolla Sailfish, The Unlike Qt-Powered Mobile OS

Jolla Ltd., a Finnish-based company that spun off from Nokia's MeeGo is developing a mobile OS unlike others, the Sailfish OS. Sailfish OS is set out to be a real alternative. It is independent, open, partner friendly, and created by a team with credible track record. Jolla is set to create an ecosystem unlike others around Sailfish OS and welcomes everyone to join the voyage. And hey, it's kind-of MeeGo reborn!

One of the pillar technologies used by the Sailfish OS is Qt. The whole SDK is Qt Creator based and the phone UI and applications are written with QML.

For this meetup, we will get Jolla guests to talk to you about the platform and community unlike. We will also take a hands-on look into the Sailfish SDK, which is already out and downloadable under SailfishOS.org.

At the very same day, we are celebrating the global Jolla Love Day, which hopefully reveals us more details of the actual phone. Regardless, we have a very unlike N950 to show around as well!

Tentative agenda:

6:30 - 6:45 Introduction to Jolla and the community Unlike (Carol Chen, Jolla)

6:45 - 7:30 Getting started with the Sailfish SDK (Tuukka Ahoniemi, Qt by Digia)

7:30 - 8:30 Fireside talk and Q&A with Jolla CTO, Stefano Mosconi

    Hi all! I'm very excited about next Monday's SV Qt Meetup with Jolla. We got lucky with the date selection, because it happens to be the global Jolle Love Day, with hopefully some revelations taking place. See for instance:
    http://techcrunch.com/2013/05/13/jolla-love-day/

    Also, I got a confirmation that the Jolla CTO himself, Stefano Mosconi, will be joining our Qt meetup to do fireside talk and Q&A with developers!

    So, be warmly welcomed again to join us next Monday, 6:30 (or after 6 already) to Qt by Digia office in Santa Clara. Please help spread to word of the event to also outside the Qt community, to any mobile developers. This is a very unique opportunity. And.. we have drinks/snacks and some giveaways to raffle ;)
