Call for Participation!
Linaro is excited to announce that we will once again host a Demo Friday event at LCA13 – Hong Kong to showcase the latest Linux developments on ARM. Linaro members, partners and community will offer interactive demonstrations which showcase the combination ARM based processor boards and Linaro builds of Android, Ubuntu and more.
What is Demo Friday?
Demo Friday is a two-hour event that will showcase new and innovative ways Linaro members, partners and community are using various Linaro builds and other Linaro based code on ARM based processor boards. Demo Friday will take place on Friday, March 8, 2013 at Gold Coast Hotel in Hong Kong (Exact time and location to be determined). Demo Friday is open to the public. This is an exciting and educational opportunity for everyone to get a hands on demonstration of what Linaro is enabling with ARM based processor boards for Linux on ARM.
Poster Program Added
New to our Demo Friday event will be a Poster Program. This program is for those who would like to let attendees know how they or their organization is using Linaro code and ARM based processors, but can’t actually bring the equipment to the Linaro Connect event.
More information on this program can be found here.
Previous demonstration events have included Kinnect-face robot recognizing human faces, Linaro Android Build Service, Automated Validation Infrastructure for Android system, XBMC running on a Snowball board, Ubuntu TV on a Pandaboard, Quick Start board demos and more. More about past events can be found here and video of past Demo Friday events are also available on the Linaro YouTube Channel.
