Ultra96 is an Arm-based, Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC development board based on the Linaro 96Boards specification, to help developers develop for the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC ZU3EG SBVA484 FPGA. Ultra96 boots from the provided Delkin 16 GB MicroSD card, pre-loaded with PetaLinux. Engineers have options of connecting to Ultra96 through a Webserver using integrated wireless access point capability or to use the provided PetaLinux desktop environment which can be viewed on the integrated Mini DisplayPort video output.

Tao Wang, Leader of the Talent Development Working Group at the Green Computing Consortium, to bring better energy efficiency for the Chinese server market. China might mandate that ARM Servers must be used to reduce power consumption for cloud services, a demand that is growing very fast in China. Filmed at the Linaro Connect Hong Kong.

HXT Semiconductor is a partnership between Qualcomm and China local Government of Guizhou Province to create ARM Server chipsets for the Chinese market. HXT is working with Linaro in the Open Source community working in the LEG Linaro Enterprise Group, to get good Linux support on the ARM Server. With eventual announcements for the HXT ARM Server products to come.
Arm ServerReady is a program to make sure that the ecosystem is enabled to support the ARM server, making sure that all the operating systems just work and can be installed without a lot of patches and stuff. They ask ODM and Silicon Providers to work with ARM to comply with the standards to make sure everything just is working. Linaro LEG also did an SBSA QEMU effort, that is well aligned with the Arm ServerReady Program letting people run the tests even before the hardware is available.

Tom Gall interview with Amit Pundir who works on Android Common Kernels involved with Android Mainline Tracking Tree. Filmed at Linaro Connect 2018 in Hong Kong.
ARM is showing TrustZone Media Protection working with the Open Source Trusted Execution Environment, adopting everything within the Android operating system.
Platform Security Architecture (PSA) is an IoT security framework being developed by Arm. Trusted Firmware M is an open source project to provide PSA compliant secure firmware for M profile devices. Zephyr is a Linux Foundation Collaboration Project to provide a small, scalable RTOS for connected, resource constrained device.
Jon "maddog" Hall gives a brief history of the period of 1969 to 2019 with regard to 50 years of Unix and Internet advancement. Some of the high (and low) points of that period and its meaning to computer science of today. He calls for a celebration in the year 2019 of the women and men who made these advances possible. 2019 will be 50 years of Unix, 25 years of usable Linux, Linus Torvalds's 50 years old, 10 years since the start of the ideas to setup Linaro and more.
Jon "maddog" Hall describes OptDyn(tm), makers of Subutai(tm) Open Source Peer-to-Peer Cloud Software, the Subutai Bazaar, and the Subutai Blockchain Router that not only is a broadband router for the home or business, but is also an IoT gateway, NAS server (with programmable RAID) and energy efficient cryptocurrency router. maddog explains why these features are important to consumers and businesses.
HKG18-500K2 – Keynote: Laura Dekker – The Machine as Alien Ethnographer: Advanced Computation, Open Source Systems and Art
The last decade or so of development in open source hardware, software and data has brought an astonishing richness of resources for artists: Python and C++ libraries for natural language processing, biological simulation, data programming and machine learning – such as TensorFlow, NLTK, openFrameworks and project Gutenberg. As well as continually expanding functionality, increased accessibility has drastically brought down the barriers to entry and exploration.
