The Linaro Android Platform Team, Period Feb. 02 to Feb. 16

 In Android, Connect Events, Industry

Wow! Talk about having everything at the same place! Redwood City has for the past two weeks harbored a unique concentration of Linux and Android Professionals (I almost wrote “geeks” :)) At Connect we planned the next quarter of Linaro work while on the same time got a lot of work done. At Android Builders Summit we met fellow Android people, some of them as far away from as outside the ARM universe 🙂 and got more work done. At Embedded Linux Conference we worked some more and mingled with the superstars of Linux. Intense!

Here’s a list of this weeks major achievements.
