Editor’s note: From time to time, I have guest bloggers. Findley Merritt is a social media specialist with Mentor Graphics and my social media coach. She attended ARM Tech Con in October and created a quick roundup through the eyes of an ARM newbie.

If you were at ARM Tech Con, I was one of the few millennials running around with my head buried in my phone tweeting. I also happened to be one of the only attendees who poorly chose to wear a black, leather peplum top instead of T-shirt and jeans, a la every engineer there. For those of you who missed the conference, this post is for you.

ARM unveiled the new ARM Connected Community at the start of the conference. The community functions much like a social networking site where partners and individuals can post, share, blog, comment and ultimately connect with each other. ARM had a noticeable push for social media engagement as evidenced by the mounted screen, which showed real time updates from Twitter.
