Linaro is a collaboration between several large companies working to improve the state of Linux on the ARM platform. While this combination has much promise, we are yet to see large numbers of products available to buy. There are many complex reasons for this, but a group of companies involved in Linux and ARM identified some of them, and formed a new organisation to work together to tackle them.
This talk will give you an idea of some of the problems that led to the formation of Linaro, and some of the plans for solving them. Further though it will look at why ARM matters for Linux, why Linaro is vital to its success, and what role you may be able to play in that.
