The third generation of Sailfish OS is here, and we call it Sailfish 3! After months of hard work to get Sailfish 3 out in the wild, we have now released this rather big update to Sailfish powered devices. With that said, we surely wanted to celebrate the occasion and arranged two events: one in Helsinki, and another one in Berlin. Thanks to all of you who attended! Below, you find a short description what happened, and what the mood was like.
Sailfish 3 Day in Helsinki
On November 8th, the day we named after Sailfish 3, we arranged a celebration event in Helsinki. Many journalists, industry people, and community members were invited to come along and celebrate the release of Sailfish 3 with us. We presented Sailfish 3, demoed devices running the OS, had a ton of fun, built more relationships with the Sailfish community and had some great food and drinks catered to us during the event.
Sailfish 3 Presentation
Our CEO Sami Pienimäki, and Chief Designer Martin Schüle gave the crowd a deep dive to Jolla’s current status and Sailfish 3. The presentation did start with a surprise guest, whom our older community members will surely recognise and love, and ended with a Q&A, which we also recorded on the same video linked below.
Sailfish 3 Meetup in Berlin
Germany is by far one of our biggest fanbases in whole of Europe, so on November 11th, after Sailfish 3 Day we hosted a meetup in Berlin, with roughly 50 of our German-based community members, and a few journalists.
Sami and Martin held another presentation for this crowd, giving a closer look at where we are at, what Sailfish 3 is all about and what is about to come. This time though, we only have photos to share with you as we did not record this event.
More events to follow
After such a big release, we are keen to hear more from our community, especially with face-to-face interactions. We are now planning on arranging more events in different parts of Europe, and we’ll inform you about them in advance. So keep your eyes peeled on our channels!
We are also working on a public Sailfish 3 roadmap, which we will share with you in our blog as soon as it is ready. So stay tuned!
