Running Tizen Emulator in Mac OS X Mavericks

Your MacBook may hang if you try to run Tizen emulator in Mac OS X Mavericks. The reason behind this problem is that Mavericks is currently not supported by HAXM so running the Tizen emulator will result in a crash.

In order to resolve this issue, you can do one the following two way:

1. [Not recommended] Disable CPU-VT and GPU from the emulator manager as shown below. However, you have to know that doing this will make your emulator very slow but it will run peacefully.

2. [Recommended] Install hotfix for Mavericks available to download from the HAXM website:

Speaking in Geecon 2014

Geecon
I will be speaking in Geecon conference (From 14 May to 16 May @Krakow, Poland) about “Jasmine Automated Tests for JavaScript”. My session will be a practical one, I will discuss how to develop unit tests for the JavaScript code of the applications using Jasmine as a powerful descriptive JavaScript unit testing tool and how to “automate” running Jasmine tests on the web browsers. The session also discusses how to generate Jasmine reports from the build management tools:
