Update on the Community
Bye Bye Soon and a Huge Thank You!
After ~6.5 years at ARM I have taken the very difficult decision to leave. It has been an immense pleasure to work for you. I hope that, with your tremendous help, we managed to launch and shape an online collaboration tool (=community) you find useful for your work/ business.
From September 4th, your main community manager will be Song Bin 宋斌. He joined ARM when we launched the community and, with the help of the contributors, has started the Chinese community (中文社区) from scratch.
Many of you will have seen his contributions, even if you might not have been able to read them all . He knows the platform very well as he's been working with me and speaks English, Chinese and Japanese.
As I previously indicated, I am currently recruiting for a community specialist. Also, Vinod Desai will be looking after you and the platform whilst the company chooses a new global community manager. Vinod has been with ARM for years so is a good people connector, and he will also manage a few technical aspects of the platform.
Some of the other activities I was handling will be transferred to different parts of the company, like ARM IT for instance with whom we have worked since before the start of the adventure and who allowed us to address all technical issues promptly.
Therefore the community will be in many very capable hands!
I would like to stick around after my departure as I do enjoy the community very much, but I don't expect to have any special power or elevated access any more. As always, you can look for a community_manager to get help, or ask in Community Help.
I am using my remaining time to finish documenting processes, transfer knowledge and visit the Mona Glesga. Of course, I keep learning from your contributions, whether you are an employee, working for a partner or individual contributor! I've made too many friends to list you all.
Juno ARM Development Platform Renamed
The change has been done and the group is now called ARM Development Platforms to also host other development platforms, existing and to be launched in the future. You can update your bookmarks... or not as I've put URL redirects in place. Scope difference with Software Development Tools is detailed in Juno ARM Development Platform Renaming.
The upgrade project keeps progressing. We are using external help from our software vendor to port the improvements and features I developed following your recommendations.
Using the platform vendor should help get the best result possible for you, whilst keeping the community managers available for community management instead also do software development. After all, they are community software specialists with extensive user experience research coming from the millions of users of the platform.
Here are a few items on the community I believe you should see. You can also find featured content on the community homepage and on the overview page of each community.
- some help with DS-5 - Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) to learn how to use the examples
- What Does Linaro Do? by Linaro themselves
- Programmable Interrupt Controllers: A New Architecture on the GICv3, from the ARM Processors community owner Eoin McCann

Featured Member - Mohamed Saleh
Mohamed has written a course to learn about ARM programming on Udemy. You can have more information about the course on Learn ARM Cortex-M processor A to Z.
Even better, Mohamed has offered 3 coupons for community members to get the course for free. The reviews on the course are glowing: ARM Processor A to Z (Introduction, Part 1) - Udemy
Would you like to take the course?
Let me know (comment, email, direct message...) and I can share the coupon code privately.
