Code of Conduct

Linaro Ltd, as host for Linaro Connect, is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for participants at all of our events. Linaro events are working conferences intended for professional networking and collaboration in the Linux community. They exist to encourage the open exchange of ideas and expression and require an environment that recognizes the inherent worth of every person and group. While at Linaro events or related ancillary or social events, any participants, including speakers, attendees, volunteers, sponsors, exhibitors, booth staff and anyone else, should not engage in harassment in any form of communication or media including email, texting and social media.

All event participants are expected to behave in accordance with professional standards, with both the Linaro Connect Code of Conduct as well as their respective employer’s policies governing appropriate workplace behavior, and applicable laws.

Harassment will not be tolerated in any form, including but not limited to harassment based on gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion or any other status protected by laws in which the conference or program is being held. Harassment includes the use of abusive, offensive or degrading language, intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, inappropriate physical contact, sexual imagery and unwelcome sexual advances or requests for sexual favors.. Any report of harassment at one of our events will be addressed immediately. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Anyone who witnesses or is subjected to unacceptable behavior should notify a conference organizer at once.

Exhibitors should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material in their booths and must refrain from the use of sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise creating a sexualized environment. Speakers should not use sexual language, images, or any language or images that would constitute harassment as defined above in their talks.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, ranging from issuance of a warning to the offending individual to expulsion from the conference with no refund, depending on the circumstances. Linaro reserves the right to exclude any participant found to be engaging in harassing behavior from participating in any further Linaro events, trainings or other activities.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns relating to harassment, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. Conference staff can be identified by t-shirts/staff badges onsite; and an organizer can be found at the event registration counter at any time. You are also encouraged to contact Diane Cheshire, Group HR Director at diane.cheshire@linaro.org

Conference staff will be happy to provide support to participants, including contacting hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, when appropriate, providing escorts, or otherwise assisting those experiencing harassment to ensure that they feel safe for the duration of the conference.

We value your attendance.

Linaro Connect is a developer focused engineering event hosted by Linaro that brings together developers and maintainers of both hardware and software to collaborate and discuss common problems. Topics covered in sessions at Linaro Connect include Linux Kernel, Toolchain, IoT & Embedded, AI, Android, Continuous Integration Testing, Security, Standardized Firmware, and more.

Since Linaro’s inception in 2010, we have hosted Linaro Connect as a full five day event featuring 120+ technical sessions and keynotes, business meetings, hacking sessions and a Technology demo showcase. At Connect, we have roughly 400 attendees from 25+ countries and 50+ companies in attendance.

In Spring 2020, we planned to host Linaro Connect in Budapest, Hungary but due to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic we had to cancel our in-person event and thus began our journey with virtual events. We hosted our first virtual event in March 2020 and have hosted two Linaro Virtual Connect events per year since then.

Our virtual events have re-created some of the most important elements from Linaro Connect including low level technical session content and training for developers, important industry updates and announcements, technology demos, and the opportunity to hear from and network with other software and hardware developers and open source maintainers. Our goal is to bring together the Arm and open source community globally to collaborate on common problems and our free virtual events have allowed us to involve a wider audience than ever before.

We will continue to host virtual events moving forward until it is safe to host Linaro Connect again in person. To read more about our plans for upcoming virtual events, check out our blog here.

We hope we can resume Linaro Connect in person with all of you soon!

Session recordings and slides from past Linaro Connects (1400+ free public videos) from our past in-person and virtual Linaro Connect events can be found on the Linaro Resources Hub
