Session Abstract

There has been a lot of discussion in the ARM community on twitter for a NUC like platform for ARM. A group of us have been collecting requirements and want to have a discussion with the community at large on what we want ideally see in a new platform, ADUC: The Arm Developer Unit of Computing. Were gathering resources and working with industry partners to try and build something to show the world that we need something between a Raspberry Pi and a Server that is somewhat easily available, and a finished product. Join us to hear what we have found, and provide your feedback for what you would want to see in such a product. We wont solve everyones problems, but were hoping to get something that can be an excellent first step.
