2019 was a busy and exciting year for Arm with product announcements from the largest of hyperscalers to the smallest of devices, and everything in between. These products are truly enabling our partners and developers to do amazing things based on Arm architecture– enabling the world of 1 Trillion intelligent devices.
As we all know, these products are only as good as their software enablement. Therefore, we are also excited to see such amazing advancements to our software ecosystem. This progress was shared a few months ago when we announced support from new software partners including development platforms, CI and CD tools, virtualization, and cloud-native support. As you can see, the ecosystem is expanding rapidly.
Most rapidly growing software programs go through a foreseen problem – lack of a “one-go-to-place" for developers. We anticipated this issue and as promised in my last blog, we are committed to: “Make the developer experience on Arm frictionless through building out the software stack and enabling a complete set of developer tools.”
To better organize and support this diverse, dynamic and rapidly expanding software and developer ecosystem, Arm is announcing major updates to the Arm Neoverse Developer Program.
The goal of this program is quite simple:
Enable frictionless development and deployment of cloud native applications on the Arm architecture from edge to cloud.
To reach this goal, we are using the new program to:
This is just the beginning of the changes we are making to this program. We started with Infrastructure solutions and if you are developing applications in the IoT, autonomous, or gaming space - stay tuned Our goal is to enable and support developers across a broad range of Arm products, to make it easier for you to get the answers and support you need.
One of Arm’s core strengths is our vast and diverse ecosystem. We want to make it easier for everyone to engage and collaborate. This new program is for the community, by the community, and Arm will help structure the content, but more importantly provide a landing space for all things Arm developer. This space should encourage peer-to-peer and open dialogue across the community, from developers to software partners, and systems and cloud providers.
A call to all Arm partners and developers: Arm has serviced its software ecosystem for many years and we take pride in continuing to do it. We value our developers and partners contributions to it, so please join us in building this community. Share your feedback on the content, ask questions, contribute content, and participate in the forum. Along with everything else, we also have a new Twitter handle that you can follow for updates related to the software ecosystem. When you are done checking out our new pages, head over to Twitter and follow @ArmSoftwareDev.
