Update on the Community

'Community Takeover'

And...that's a wrap on our first 'Community Takeover' type of event in the ARM Connected Community. In case you might have overlooked some of the great content that was shared, this document provides an easy rundown with the links to all the fantastic blogs, teardowns and polls from ARM Wearables Week. The wearables market is real and I'm very interested to see where it goes from here. Attention ARM Developers and Partners, keep on developing, there's still a lot of opportunity in this market!

 

On December 8th, we'll be hosting ARM Kickstarter Week in the community. During the week, we will be highlighting some successful ARM-based Kickstarter campaigns, as well as a variety of content on how to get your idea to market, and tutorials from ARM experts. I invite everyone to contribute during the week and share Kickstarter projects you've backed (or started), thoughts about the crowdfunding phenomena and anything else related to this space.

 

Going to the Paris next week for the ARM Tech Symposia?

Alban will be at the ARM Tech Symposia 2014 - Europe in Paris next week (Dec. 3-4), so please reach out to him if you are attending - he'd love to meet you.

 

Featured Content

Almost every week, I pick a few items on the community I think you should see. You can also find featured content on the community homepage and on the overview page of each community.

Eoin McCann came over from ARM's acquisition of Duolog and published some great blogs this week: Interview: How to solve the IP integration problem, Samsung Exynos 7 Octa: Latest ARM® Cortex®-A57 and Cortex-A53-based SoC with ARM big.LITTLE™ technology, Freescale’s Layerscape LS2 SoCs fuel the adoption of SDN and NFV

 

Featured Partner

We welcome a new ARM Partner to the family - Iota Security builds advanced cyber security solutions for the Internet of Things. Yaron, it would be beneficial for everyone if you can share a blog around IoT security.

 

Tip -Tag it

Tags are essentially keywords. When you're about to post an item, like a blog post, document, or discussion, select or type in the keywords that come to mind in the Tags field. This will increase the search relevance of the item and help others find it in the future.

 

On many pages in the system you'll find a Tag Cloud that shows the most commonly used tags in that part of the community. You can click on any of the tags to find items that have been tagged with that word. You can even select multiple tags to narrow your search to items that have more than one tag applied.

Update on the Community

With Feedback and Metrics Come Great Things

Or at least useful things. We've observed that traffic is coming to pages which don't exist on our community.

To serve something somewhat useful to the user, we have changed the Not Found page, supporting multi-languages. That's a change I hope you won't see...

A couple of members got caught by Blog Scheduling Date Problem due to a locale mismatch, so we have added the mention in the UI, near the feature.

We've cleaned-up the homepage carousel as well, based on your feedback.

Finally, we fixed the syntax highlighter on mobile Chrome as the text was clipped in phone portrait mode.

Thanks for letting us know, giving us the opportunity to do something about it!

On Sunday, our software vendor will be doing some maintenance on the community. Look at the announcement on the homepage for more info.

 

Retiring Photo Albums

We will be removing the photo album feature from the community next month. It hasn't been used much, and we believe it has too many limitations. It will also slightly simplify the interface.

We have started transferring photo album images into documents, or blogs in our topic areas.

Members having photo albums on their profile will be contacted individually before we take a default action.

We intend to allocate the money saved in getting more content and useful features.

Tip - Email Notifications on Your Content

When you reply/comment or create some content, you will automatically "follow" it in your inbox activity stream.

It means that you subscribe to the content for any update automatically.

The default behaviour at account creation used to be not to send email on these. Since last week, we have changed this.

In order for your to receive email updates for activities in your inbox, you need to check your user preferences.

The first item should be "On" to receive email notifications:

Tip - I Just Want the Open Questions I Can Help on

I was asked to explain how to filter content relevant to you... So I'll try and reply here.

If you are interested in open questions about a specific topic, you can use content filtering and the personalisable links at the top.

 

20141111_OpenQuestionsCortex-M.png

Here is a step by step guide:

  1. Go to Content at the top of any page to see content throughout the community.
  2. Click on Discussions, to see discussions across the community.
  3. In the drop down, select Open Questions if you don't want to see the closed subjects or the general discussions.
  4. In the search, type your search term. I'll take cortex-m as an example. This is an instant search, you do not need to click anywhere to get the results. You now see all open questions about Cortex-M, wherever they are in the community.
  5. Save the URL in your browser to use in step 7.
  6. Click on links at the top global navigation and click edit at the bottom of that menu.
  7. Select the entry you need the less and paste the URL from step 5. in the URL field.
  8. Give a descriptive name in the Label.
  9. You now can access your prefered search from the global navigation in the links menu.

Hello Everyone,

I am very sorry for the downtime which just took place. I sincerely hope you haven't lost too much of your work.

This issue has been caused by a human error = my error.

In order to bring improvements to the community, I am working on a development server which uses data copied from the live production community.

I could accuse my tiredness but the truth is I clicked on the wrong button and, instead of restarting our test server, I did so on the production environment.

I realised within seconds but it was too late to cancel.

Hopefully, this one-off personal error won't tarnish the impression/experience you've had of the community in the last year.

Update on the Community

Over the weekend, we managed to roll out most of what we wanted to do. Here is a summary:

  1. Clean-up the suggested tags to remove unwanted tags like crotex or coretex…
  2. Install custom redirections. For blog move, group renaming, vanity urls... This will make it easier to give URLs you can remember for special content: http://community.arm.com/partners for instance.
  3. Change homepage and all topic areas overview page layout to simplify and increase relevance. This is a first pass. Please share your impressions so we can tweak.
  4. Add a carousel on the homepage with overlay. There is an issue with Internet Explorer I need to fix. If you want your content featured, include an image in it so it's easier for us!!
  5. Add a register link on the login modal window. You will only see it if you flush your browser cache.

There are not enough replies to the survey to make the results really representative, even if it gives us an idea. May I encourage you to take a few minutes to complete that survey to guide our priorities?

Tip - I Just Want the Questions/Answers

We have already mentioned this in the past, but because that's something I was asked again today, I thought I would explain it again.

Some readers might prefer to only see the Q&As, like a forum would be. Of course, it means you miss all the proactive content like blogs, tutorials and presentations, but it's up to you.

You can filter by the type of content, whether you are browsing globally or in a particular community.

When looking globally, just click on Content and then Discussions. You can then sort them the way you wish.

But you can also do that at the community level. For instance, to look at ARM Processors Q&As, go to the group, then click on the content tab, and on Discussions: ARM Processors Discussions.

Happy Anniversary!

The community is 1 year old today. At ARM TechCon 2013, the ARM Connected Community transitioned from being a B2B-only marketing partnership programme to1_Year_Anniversary_Stamp.png what it is today - a vibrant, interactive community that addresses developer needs.

 

Whether you are an SoC, system, application... developer, you now have a channel to reach ARM experts and provide your feedback, as well as a place to find a variety of ARM-related blogs, white papers and  tutorials. You also might have noticed that Brad Nemire has been publishing presentations from ARM TechCon 2014 as the organiser kindly authorized us to - these will be very useful for visitors and members. The presentations and their content will be searchable in the community, along Partners and members. So, before you ask a question, you might find that a talk addressed your particular need in details!

 

A Few Numbers

Within the last year, the ARM Connected Community welcomed more than 6,600 registered members  who have created more than 7,500 pieces of content! The content you created generated more than 26,000 engagements in the community (content revision, replies, likes, comments...) - keep in mind, this doesn't include sharing on social media and any dialogue occurring on them.

 

Finally, more than 50% of our ARM Partner companies claimed their transferred space within the first six months of the community launch! We now have more than 600 active partners in the community.

 

Room for Improvement

Engagement has significantly increased compared to what it was before the community, but we can do much better. We have a high number of "lurkers" or silent readers and having more members participating would be beneficial for everyone.

 

We are also working to be able to give you more code examples/ snippets. The first replies we received on our 5-minute survey already highlights this wish. In order to prioritise improvements, please take a few minutes to answer the survey - it will take you less than 5 minutes and will allow us to provide content and features you would like most. If you don't feel like completing the survey and you've never posted anything, consider commenting on this post.

 

Upcoming Changes

We have talked about the homepage changes for the last month. Unfortunately, we met some technical challenges and team illness, which means we haven't been able to roll them out today. This should be done next Sunday!

 

On Sunday, we will have a maintenance time when the community will not be available - I will need to restart it a few times. We will start the work at 11am UK time on Sunday, 2nd November and it is expected to last a few hours. We will remove the banner from the homepage when normal service resumes.

 

On top of the changes to the homepage and group overview pages, we are upgrading some plugins we are using to translate the user interface.

 

Thank you all for you contribution and your feedback during the first 12 months.

 

Let's aim higher for the next 12!

5 Minute Member Survey

The new ARM Connected Community is turning 1 at the end of this month - and what a learning experience it was for everyone. As we plan for 2015, it would be very useful if you can complete a short survey (it will take you less than 5 minutes. We mean it, we timed it!) and then also comment below with what you enjoy about the community and/or any suggested changes we should think about implementing. The community was built for you, so we want to ensure we're providing for your needs. If you take a look back through the previous weekly Connecting the Dots blogs, we do listen to feedback and have made quite a few changes over the last year.

Update on the Community

With Q3 in the books, it's time to reward the winners of the ARM Connected Community Member Rewards Program!

 

Possibly there are some that do not know, but you receive points within the community for your contributions and engagement - ask a question, reply to discussion, post a 'correct' answer, contribute a blog, publish a status update, follow a member, and so on. Point System, Status Level - Guide will give you a bit more details, as well as the different community status levels you can obtain. Since launch (almost a year ago), the non-employee member with the most points is techguyz, with Jérôme Décamps and jensbauer not too far behind. I know that a very high majority of you are not here to win prizes for your efforts - but this is a way for us to say thank you and recognize you for all of your contributions to the ARM Connected Community. Below are the winners of  the ARM Connected Community Q3 Member Rewards Program, and the most viewed posts from the quarter.

 

A huge thank you to everyone in the community for your contributions - in Q3 the community welcomed nearly 1,300 members, 21 new ARM Partners and 1,462 pieces of published content!

 

The Top Employees and Members with the most points will be rewarded with an ARM-powered Dropcam Pro! The members will also receive a gleaming trophy badge for their profile.

 

 

The Rewards Programs will continue into Q4 and points will not be carried over - so you're all now on even field. Besides the Q4 Rewards Program, we will also be giving a $500 ARM-powered gift to the the employee and non-employee with the highest 2014 point total.

You may notice a TechCon theme in this blog and across the community. I am really thrilled to see that this year again people who are not going to that event will not left out!

 

Update on the Community

I wanted to remind you that Smart and Connected is now known as Internet of Things. That community will receive your new IoT content instead of being split with Embedded.

 

Changing 'People' to 'Members' and 'Places' to 'Communities'

We have received feedback that the top navigation links "People" and "Places" were a bit cryptic: they lack clarity as to what is hiding behind them. For a some time, we have tried to find words which would self-explanatory without creating confusion with existing terms. After a vote we have decided that Place will become Community because it is a much better known term. Communities can be groups and spaces, like today.

Also, we are changing People to Members. This will remove confusion for features which are for simple readers or for members of the community. We also feel that 'members' has a sense of belonging 'people' doesn't have.

We will do the change on Wednesday 1 October at 9am UK time, so members joining us at ARM TechCon have the best experience from the start!

Tip - Reply by Email

When you are out and about, like for instance at ARM TechCon, you may want to easily reply to notifications you have received.

You can do so from your email client, after taking one precaution: end the content you want posted by a line with 5 dashes. Everything after that line will be discarded. That's the best way not to flood the community with an unhelpful long email signature and non-pertinent company email system disclaimer (if you posted it publicly, I would hope it's not confidential).

Tip - Browse all tags in the community

There's an easy way to view all of the content you're most interested in within the community. From the top menu bar, click on the down arrow to the right of 'links' and select 'All tags' from the drop-down menu (see image below).

 

You can then sort by clicking on one of the 'Top 200 most popular tags' or type in a tag in the search field. This will then return content results with that chosen tag from across the entire community platform - you can even click on other tags within the 'tag cloud' to get more narrower results.

 

Hope this helps, happy browsing!

201409_SimplifyGroupOverview.pngUpdate on the Community

It looks like most people prefer Layout A we presented inWhich Homepage Layout, NIC-400 Opti Webinar, Finding Unread Discussions.

Today, I've got another call for feedback. How can we improve the group overview page so it is more relevant to YOU?! (example: ARM Processors)

Internal feedback I've already received suggests simplification: having more available without scrolling. For instance, even if the tags are crucial for search, we don't really need them displayed. Similarly, the group creation date doesn't bring much to the party.

If we follow the same logic as the homepage, we could also move the description text to the top of the middle column. I believe we should keep the group owners, because they are your contacts in case you have to escalate an issue. Also, even if I already removed all social sharing icons, I will keep a warning on any private collaboration area.

All the space reclaimed would allow to have the latest blogs more prominent without even having to scroll.

 

Wenjun highlighted that most Partners now joining the community (spaces under Find a Partner) now directly send all the elements from the start. A great example of what the community can bring: by putting all the information/guides and requirements public, this has allowed us to speed up the joining process. Less email exchanges also means that everyone saves time. That should also increase satisfaction.

 

On Saturday, we will be renaming the Smart and Connected group to Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT content today split between Smart and Connected and Embedded will be moved to that newly named group.

Tip - ARM Employees in the Community

I have updated the ARM Employees In The Community - FAQ about private 1-2-1 support requests.

To avoid frustration, we request that you do not send private messages or emails to our staff unless they asked you to.

ARM employees (and anyone) are advised to decline any private support: that defeats the purpose of a community (answer once, help many).

ARM has formal support channels in place if your company requires urgent help to progress on a project. Unlike community support, the official support has SLAs in place.

 

I hope that you will understand that 1-2-1 timely support for everything is not a scalable model: with 6.000 members and many more readers, it just cannot work effectively.

Update on the Community

As Brad was highlighting last week, we have used members' feedback for improvements since launch: event calendar, opening groups to ease contribution, update social sharing icon location, roll out new features...

We have offered two new layouts for vote to the community owners. Their preference is towards Layout A which is a bit simpler, but the votes are very close.

What is your point of view? Any layout you really don't like?!

Click on a picture to zoom in, and then please comment with your observations.

 

Layout ALayout B
  1. Featured content as carousel, mouse over gives some details (see the 3rd carousel slide)
  2. Topic areas (like ARM Processors) better promoted at the top
  3. Instant search at the top middle section: great feature from the platform we should better promote
  1. Featured content as carousel, mouse over gives some details (see the 3rd carousel slide)

  3. Add a shortcut to go to the content for each topic area (the icon below each place name on top left column)
  4. Instant search at the top middle section: great feature from the platform we should better promote
NewHomeWelcomeWidget_LayoutA.pngNewHomeWelcome_LayoutB.png


The next changes will be about the overview pages (example). We have already asked the community owners' feedback, but what YOU need is the most important.


The ARM Processors group has two additional community owners from this week. Ben Walshe and Eoin McCann will be looking after System IP related content (CoreSight, CoreLink, AMBA...)


I also want to warn you that Smart and Connected group will be renamed to Internet Of Things. Today, IoT content is split between Smart and Connected and Embedded.

On top of making it easier to know where to post, re-purposing the group will also allow it to cover subjects like mbed. I am currently doing some testing to make sure links to the existing blogs won't break when we do the change. Also, we will move existing IoT content from Embedded to the renamed group. Change will occur during weekend to minimise disruption and you will be notified in Connecting the Dots. Also, all members of Smart and Connected will receive an inbox notification.

Tip - Browsing Discussions Like a Forum - Obvious Unread Content

Even if this community platform allows you to subscribe to content so you only see what you care about, we understand some members/readers are browsing the community discussions like they would forums.

When you look at the list of discussions, you can very quickly learn if you have read the full thread or not.

If you have not read the thread or one of its replies, the thread title will be in bold. This only works when listing discussions, not when listing all content.

To list all discussions/questions, see Update on the Community in Nearly 90% of Discussions Have Replies, New ARMv8-A Whitepaper by ARM and Qualcomm, ARM’s 64-bit big.LITTLE at 2.5GHz+

Update on the Community

We value everyone's constructive feedback on how to 'better' the ARM Connected Community - and with our 1 Year Anniversary approaching at the end of October, we have been working hard on finalizing a homepage redesign. The new homepage will hopefully make it easier to search and find content from across the community platform. We are in process of obtaining feedback from the Community Owners (those that look over the different community areas) and then once we have narrowed down the options, we will be opening the possible new homepage layout options to the wider community for input - so stay tuned as we welcome your thoughts.

Why do we need to hear from you?

ARM is currently working on a project to better understand how to engage and serve our Partners, developers, tech enthusiasts, press...  through digital channels.

Your experience is crucial to us, so we would be very grateful if you could take less than 15 minutes to complete an online survey. This survey will close on Tuesday 26th August:

 

Go to the ARM Digital Business Survey (now closed)

 

ARM employees will be polled at a later date with questions more pertinent to their expected use.

 

Which angles are we researching on?

We would like to hear about how you work with us and our products, and understand how we could better support you.

On top of that, we are also looking for members and visitors who would be willing to have a phone interview with our consultants.

If you can offer us 1h of your precious time for that phone interview, please leave a comment or contact me privately: Alban.Rampon@ARM.com

 

Our consultants are looking at the following:

  1. Background: the type of work you do and your relationship with ARM
  2. Your online needs and preferences: how do you use the Internet at work e.g. download software, get access to documentation etc.
  3. ARM current sites and communities: which ARM sites/channels do you use and what could be improved?
  4. Potential new services and ways of interacting:  e.g. what kinds of new online services would you like to see ARM introduce?

 

Your contact details are NOT collected during the survey.

We will NOT be contacted directly after replying to the survey, unless you ask us to!

 

By sharing your opinion and preferences, you will help us shape the future of the ARM Connected Community but also all other channels like social media, marketing website...

If you have any concern or question, please feel encouraged to ask us as we want to improve!!!
