Reportage: Jolla Hardware and Sailsfish OS software development at Jolla Hack Day
February 22, 2014 at Devaamo (Tampere, Finland)
I had a small interview with Thomas B Rücker, Open Source Evangelist at Tieto corporation.
Tieto corporation is cooperating with Jolla both in software development (telephone, audio) and in enabling OEM manufacturing for other device manufacturers.
Tieto will also be present at MWC2014, they are not demoing Sailfish device manufacturing this time but manufacturers are welcome to contact them about that.
Thomas also told that their software development for Jolla is almost fully OpenSource, and is available at Nemo project.
Back in the app development room, a lot of code was produced during 8 hours. Apps under development were e.g. a nice Together portal client by Samuli Silvius (above, left) There were about 20 new apps under work during the Hack Day, and most of them are hopefully arriving soon to Jolla Store.
Seravo thanked all participants with good pizza and enough of drinks. Jolla gave everybody a familiar looking stocking cap with Jolla MAKIA logo (image above).
The next hacking day takes place already at March-29-2014. REGISTERATION is already opened - Jolla, Devaamo and Tieto welcomes all new software and hardware hackers along.
