Update on the Community
I unusually missed last week's blog post... There is a lot happening in ARM about improving our digital presence.
Ultimately, the goal is to make it a better, more consistent, more of this century. Of course, this will happen in different stages.
After a few weeks as a trial, we've added 15 boards and opened up the Embedded Computing Board (ECB) Resource Guide which is now available without login. Song Bin 宋斌 is working on the Chinese version currently. On the Chinese side, we are also working on helping to share to the very popular WeChat social platform.
ARM Maintenance Weekend
This weekend, the ARM employees will not have access to emails and many other systems all weekend.
The community is NOT affected, this is only a courtesy warning so you can find alternative methods if you need to interact with ARM employees urgently.
