Linaro Connect Hong Kong 2018 (HKG18)
Monday 19th to Friday 23rd March 2018
Regal Airport Hotel Hong Kong

Since 2010, Linaro Connect has been the event to attend if you are interested in open source software development for Linux, tools and the various vertical segment ecosystems that use Arm processors. While the event continues to evolve, one thing stays the same – it revolves around engineering and will consist of a mix of industry keynotes, engineering presentations and discussions, and collaborative engineering hacking sessions.

Linaro Connect HKG18 has now ended.  To view slides or videos from the keynotes and sessions, please go to the Resources page which we are in the process of updating.

The next Linaro Connect will take place at the Hyatt Regency in Vancouver, 17-21 September 2018. We will open registration in April 2018.
