So seeing as Linaro is celebrating, does that mean I get to jump out of a cake at Connect and serenade everyone? Naturally I would be suitably attired ;-)
 
Linaro Connect is celebrating 5 years!  Don't forget to register for our next Linaro Connect in 7 weeks.
Linaro Connect is celebrating it's fifth anniversary and has evolved into a premiere event for those interested or working with Linux on ARM.

Fixes, fixes everywhere. OpenEmbedded, openSUSE, Debian/Ubuntu, RHEL/Fedora and now SLES. Good part is that now most of changes is upstreamed.

One of the things that I've been busy with - +FreeBSD on +ARM v8 (more specifically #AArch64  ). It's good to get involved with different communities, brings much needed perspective and understanding to how you and others do things.
