Are you asking "Does the market need yet another mobile OS?" Maybe you are interested in what makes it relevant to your device strategy? Or you want to understand (part of) how Jolla can deliver so quickly and efficiently? Of course this is a technology-rich area so you may like a high-level technical perspective.

There will be some background covering Mer's birth, the MeeGo years and how we now work in a truly collaborative and open project to make Mer productisable. The case in point is clearly how Jolla uses Mer in Sailfish.

Mer supports organisational collaboration; our vendor focus drove the design from the project structure through the architecture, the deliverables and the processes. We continuously ask "How will this decision affect vendors using our solution to make a product?"

Mer delivers a world-class platform for building products: after all, it's an ultra-modern Linux stack with a strong upstream focus that partners with Qt, a world-class graphical framework; it rocks!

I'll explain why "code is not enough"; what else we deliver and how we ensure that the code, policies and processes you use, and tell your partners or customers to use, are up to the job.
