Tuesday of Linaro Connect Hong Kong 2015 began with another great keynote from guest speaker, Dejan Milojicic, Senior Researcher and Manager, HP Labs.  Mr. Milojicic gave a keynote titled: “The Machine: A new kind of computer” about The Machine which is a new system from HP, based on Memristor Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) and photonic interconnects, enabling new innovative solutions and applications. The talk discussed the changes HP is introducing to the system software stack to leverage The Machine.

Following the keynote was a hands-on lightning talk on ARM Servers that gave attendees information on the latest updates.  Jon Masters, Chief ARM Architect at Red Hat conducted the talks.
