Linaro Connect USA 2013 opened on Monday 28 October and is being held in Santa Clara, California. LCU13 kicked off with Linaro’s CEO, George Grey announcing that Linaro has joined the Open Compute Project (OCP) and will contribute the LAVA LMP (Linaro Multi-purpose probe) to the foundation.  Linaro has become the place where a broad cross-section of companies collaborate on the future of Linux software on ARM-based servers. Linaro’s intention in joining OCP is to bring together the hardware and software discussion and help accelerate the release of more efficient server solutions. 

In addition to the announcement about OCP Mr. Grey gave a presentation discussing “Servers to the Internet of Things”.  Linaro also had two guest speakers, Dong Wei, HP Fellow, UEFI Forum VP (Chief Executive) and ACPI SIG Secretary, who discussedEnabling next generation configuration and power management on ARM”  and Jim Zemlin from the Linux Foundation.

There were several sessions that took place on Monday after the keynotes had concluded.  These sessions included:
