Demo Friday will take place on Friday 12 July at the Burlington Hotel in Dublin, Ireland, as part of Linaro Connect Europe 2013 (LCE13)

Linux Engineers are invited to attend and participate in this energetic afternoon as Linaro, its members, and the community give attendees the opportunity to view exciting demonstrations of Linaro builds running on a variety of ARM processor-based boards.

Demos that are confirmed are listed here.  Please check back often to see what’s new.

Highlights and demonstrations from previous Linaro Connect events can be found on the Linaro YouTube Channel and on the Connect Resources page.

Do you have a Linaro demonstration you would like to show off?

Not only are you invited to view these demonstrations, but you’re also invited to set up your own Linaro demonstration as well.

Are you currently using Linaro and want to show off what you’ve been working on?

Demo Friday is the place for you to show off your work. We want to see how you are pairing Linaro’s engineering output and ARM processor-based hardware solutions.

If you or someone you know is interested in the opportunity to demonstrate how you are using Linaro, please email the details of your demonstration to: connect@linaro.org

In your email please include the following:

  • Name
  • Company
  • Title of demonstration
  • Description of demonstration (The demonstration must be Linaro related, and those presenting the demonstration should be able to tell attendees how Linaro is making their product or demonstration better)
  • Any equipment requirements
  • Participants must be available to set up their demonstration prior to the start of the event and immediately after event ends.

Please create a poster that lets attendees know all about your demonstration. The template for creating the demonstration poster is available here.  All posters must be returned to Linaro by Friday June 7 in order to guarantee printing for Demo Friday event. Poster Size when printed will be A2 (11.7×16.5 inches).

By participating in this Demo Friday event you will also be given the opportunity to have your Demo recorded and promoted via the Linaro YouTube Channel and various Linaro Social Media sites.

Demo Friday Poster Program

Also being added to the Demo Friday event is a Poster Program.  This program is for those who would like to let attendees know how they are using Linaro code and ARM-based processors, but can’t actually bring the equipment to the Linaro Connect event.

If you or someone you know is interested in the opportunity to submit a poster on how you are using Linaro, please email: amber.graner@linaro.org

Anyone participating in Demo Friday is encouraged to attend the full week of Linaro Connect. If you are only attending Demo Friday to show a demo, please ensure your demo is accepted before registering. Please contact connect@linaro.org for more information or have any questions.

Every 3-4 months Linaro hosts Linaro Connect, an event defining the future of Linux on ARM…

The event pulls together over 300 participants, ranging from kernel hackers to integration engineers to ARM SoC industry executives to present, discuss and develop features,  infrastructure and optimizations for the Linux kernel, Android, Ubuntu and beyond.  This five-day event is made up of keynote plenary sessions, engineering, track sessions and social events. Annually we look to hold Linaro Connect once in Asia (LCA), once in the United States (LCU) and once in Europe (LCE) to cater for our world class engineering team distributed globally.

Why sponsor Linaro Connect?

Linaro Connect is growing! With just two years of Connect behind us we have already established it as ‘the’ event anyone interested in Linux on ARM must attend.  We will promote your brand and give you high visibility to the event attendees – both the 300 onsite and all those who participate remotely and view the website before, during and after the event.

The below table appears complex, but this is a reflection of the value that the various sponsor levels offer. For as little as $10,000 for members or $12,000 for non-members, your company can be a bronze sponsor in front of all the hundreds of daily visitors to the event website and the 300+ attending engineers and their managers at every coffee break during the event. This is a unique opportunity for companies to get in front of these engineers. For companies who would like Linaro Connect to be located in a specific place, we offer a Gold Location sponsorship level – pending agreement on the location, this will not only provide maximum exposure for your company, it could also significantly reduce your travel and possibly also accommodation costs. Sponsorship funds are used to improve the Linaro Connect events for the sponsors and attendees and companies can be assured that, as a not-for-profit, Linaro is always looking for the most efficient way to deliver the best possible experience and engineering effectiveness. If you would like to provide another from of sponsorship, e.g. media or hardware, please contact connect@linaro.org for more information.  We’re open to most forms of cooperation.
