Linaro has posted an abundance of videos and slides from its recent conference in Asia. Linaro Connect Asia 2013 (LCA13) took place in Hong Kong during the week of March 4 and covered a wide range of topics of interest to developers using embedded Linux.
The nonprofit Linaro organization’s goal is to advance the use of ARM-powered Linux devices in cloud and mobile infrastructure applications. It has been developing common core software for ARM-based devices since June 2010.
Quoting from the LCA13 report by Amber Graner, Linaro’s Community and Social Media Manager…
The themes that echoed through all the keynotes, the sessions, and even the hallway tracks were open collaboration and how to be good citizens in the upstream kernel and other member communities.
There were a total of 308 people who attended Linaro Connect Asia 2013 representing 46 companies. Co-located with Linaro Connect Asia 2013 was the Open Compute Project (OCP) Asia Summit which had 40 attendees. There were over 3,100 meals served to attendees and 77 sessions and 126 meetings which were held through out the week. Joe Bates, VP of Member Services for Linaro summed up the awesome busyness of this week in his “Wrap-Up” talk on Friday, 8 March 2013. This was one of the most productive Connect events to date with more moving pieces and parts than ever before.
Engineers returning to their companies after Linaro Connect Asia 2013 should be able to boast about knowledge of the latest software developments around ARM, new ways of optimizing the latest ARM technology and a strong desire to return.
Linaro Connect Asia 2013 was all about engineering. The event sessions as you can see are a mixture of discussion, planning and agreement about how to engineer solutions to the projects being run within Linaro. There were 6 keynotes and the sessions were split into focused kernel, power management, toolchain, graphics and multimedia, platform, validation, and QA tracks with Mini-summits and workshops laced throughout the week to bring focus to cross-team thinking and training in key areas.
There was the opportunity for face to face interaction with leading open source maintainers such as Greg Khoar-Hartman, the upstream stable Linux kernel maintainer and many other engineers which is a key benefit for many attendees.
Remote participation was also available for most sessions via Google Hangouts OnAir, but nothing beats the opportunities for interaction in person. Below are links to the daily schedules, slide decks, etherpad notes, video sessions and interviews from the event.
