Welcome to Linaro Connect Europe 2013 (LCE13) being held in Dublin, Ireland.  LCE13 kicks off tomorrow morning, 8 July 2013 with Linaro CEO, George Grey bringing onto focus the vision that will drive the future of Linux on Arm.

This week we have exciting keynote speakers which include James Bottomley, Wannes De Smet, Leslie Hawthorn, Cole Crawford, and Bob Monkman.

LCE13 will also host the Testing and Validation mini-summit which includes sessions on Evolution of Testing in Linaro (I) and II, Review Current Linaro Engineering Processes and The future of testing at Linaro.  Additionally there will be many sessions on LAVA as well such as Introductions and Updates, a 2-part LAVA workshop, Multi-Node Testing, Advanced LAVA Lab Configuration and an Introduction to QA Services and Case Study.

However, that’s not all the excitement, we also have full tracks focused on Android, Builds and Baselines, Enterprise, Graphics and Multimedia, Linux Kernel, Network, Project Management Tools, Training and more. In the afternoons you’ll find yourself in hacking sessions with engineers from Linaro, its members and community.

On Wednesday 10 July 2013, we will have a ‘chill out’ hacking session in the evening where Jon maddog Hall will give a presentation on preparing GNU/Linux for the 64-bit Arm processors.  In an effort to port these modules to 64-bit architecture it was suggested that the Linux community might be willing to help.  A preliminary plan for engaging the GNU/Linux community has been created and Linaro would like to present this preliminary plan to some of its members, after which brainstorming and discussion will occur on how to best improve and implement the plan. Additional, a more formal session on this topic on Friday.

Can’t make it Dublin?  Don’t worry.  Check out our remote participation option and watch the sessions via the Google +Linaro On Air  or YouTube accounts.  There will be links to the live stream in each session descriptions.  The full LCE13 schedule can be found here.
