International Sailfish Community Event Recap

The first ever International Sailfish Community Event also known as ISCE was held on Friday 17th of June 2016.

For me as a fresh Community Manager and a long time Sailfish community member the event was a dream come true. The event had a lot of Jolla values in it, stirring with love & passion! The community was showing us their love, and we did our best to show the community what they mean to us. Many of you have shown us over the years what you can do to help us and the other community members. There’s a lot of value in it.

The event on Friday the 17th was full of energetic people and good Sailfish spirit, already starting from the queue to receive the Jolla C devices, T-shirts and nametags before coming in.

The event program was started with a keynote from our co-founder, Sami Pienimäki. With a title “What’s up Sailfish OS?” Sami’s presentation was about the current state and future outlooks of Sailfish OS, and of course, the community.

Here is a video of the keynote:

After the keynote we arranged three workshops for the community participants, talking about various topics related to Sailfish OS:

Hardware adaptation workshop – Carsten Munk, HW Adaptation

Sailfish design workshop – Martin Schüle, Chief Designer

Sailfish user interface live coding workshop – Joona Petrell, UI Chief Engineer

For Joona’s workshop, we have some cheat sheets that you can use for UI design:
As promised earlier to Community Device Program participants, there will be more online sessions arranged during the coming months on other fun and important topics regarding Sailfish OS development. These will all be shared publicly afterwards.

After all of the geeky workshops and tutorial sessions done by Sailors, we started having some drinks and talk about even more geeky and nerdy stuff. Some of the community members showed off their stunningly done hardware adaptation projects, then we had a rather nice dinner served to us, until we left the venue for the afterparty.

I would like to thank the community for attending and making this one of the best community-oriented events of all time and present you with some of the nice photos taken during the event in a gallery:

If you made it to the event, would be nice to hear about your experiences in the comments below!

Cheers,
James

... and not a single word about development of 3rd party native applications.

I do like the "cheat sheets" as simple ways to show how some basic elements are created.
(That said, I will never become a real developer, just "looking around" out of interest and creating "Hello World" typ apps...)

So instead of attracting experienced developers who could instantly start delivering advanced, mature apps this platform so badly needs, they sell all devices to newbies and then teach them the most basic QML basics which in the very best case can result in some Hello World apps in a few months.

Pretty clever.

I don't mind at all popularizing app development among new people and teaching them the basics. It's a great idea. But only if it is an addition to taking care about having any existing, already experienced developers making apps for this platform here and now and not in a year or two - and not instead of it.

This is the first company I've encountered in my whole life, whose hardly ANY decisions I can comprehend. And - judging by that their marketshare and general situation hasn't changed for 3 years - it must be their fault not mine.
