Step-by-step guide

To request hardware for use during Connect, follow these steps:

  1. Go to https://servicedesk.linaro.org/servicedesk/customer/portal/12/create/118
  2. Use this form to request an item of hardware. Please note that requests submitted after the cut-off date shown on the form will be rejected as the shipping date will have passed. See What is the deadline for Connect hardware requests? for more information/an explanation.
  3. Hardware can be borrowed for the whole duration of Connect or just for Demo Friday.

You will be notified by 6 August 2018 as to whether your session has been accepted. Please see our important dates page for more details.

The next Connect, YVR18, will take place 17 September through 21 September 2018 at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver. Please see our important dates page for more details.

The deadline varies depending on the country that is hosting Connect as it will affect things like how long it takes to ship the equipment to that country, how long to allow for getting the equipment through Customs, etc.

As a result, the hardware request form itself will display the cut-off date for hardware requests for the current Connect.

The general stock of Connect hardware consists of:

  • Monitors with VGA and HDMI cables.
  • USB mice.
  • USB keyboards.
  • USB hubs.
  • Multi-format power strips so you don’t need plug adapters - but your equipment must work at the local voltage, e.g. 110V for North America, 220V for Europe.
  • Network switches (note, though, that IT will generally deploy a network switch to half the tables in a hacking room).
  • Network cables (various lengths available).

We do not provide memory cards, USB keys, speakers or boards of any description.

If you have any other hardware requirements, please follow the instructions in How do I request hardware for loan during Connect? and we will let you know whether or not we can meet your request.
