Connecting the Dots

97 posts

Hi all

 

Just a small update to let you know of a couple of recent developments. Well, it started out as a small update and got bigger

 

Updates on the Community

 

Single Board Computers

We've given the Embedded Computing Board (ECB) guide an overhaul and renamed it to Single Board Computers to align it with the most commonly used industry term. We've also added some dynamically updating widgets so the content will stay fresh and up to date with new developments.

 

We're planning to migrate the design and functionality over to the Chinese version: 嵌入式计算机专区 as soon as the translation is finished.

 

As Single Board Computers, Embedded and Internet of Things are a big focus for us into 2016, bfuller has written a Single-board Computers Blogging Guide, take a look to whet your appetite.

 

Main overview featured pod

 

Slight rework here in line with ARM's new brand. We needed to be able to feature more items. We'll keep them rotating every day or two to keep it looking fresh.

 

Short Downtime

On Monday 5 February there will be a short downtime (around 30 minutes) at 2100 gmt for a server restart. I'll put an announcement up on Monday and apologies in advance.

 

This will enable some new anti-spam tools which we will subsequently be trailing. We don't have very much of an issue with spam right now, but it never hurts to have a backup plan.

Featured Events

This month we are fast approaching two big events, Mobile World Congress (MWC) and Embedded World 2016. ARM has a presence at both, with CEO simonsegars delivering a keynote at MWC and a long agenda of presentations at EW from our own lionelbelnet, chrisshore, reinhardkeil, jyiu, richardyork, philburr and ftbug to name but a few.

 

For those interested in Software Development Tools, Matthias Hertel, Product Specialist MCU Development Tools will be delivering a webinar on 11 February on Using STM32CubeMX with Keil MDK.

 

Technical Marketing Manager for ARM, christopherseidl is also delivering a webinar this month, on 14 February, on Advanced Debug and Trace on NXP TWR-K64F120M using ULINKpro

 

Sign up for both via the events pages or by clicking the images below.

Tip - Did someone help you or tell you something interesting?

If someone replied to your question, blog or other content, there a number of ways you can thank them or let them know it was helpful to you:

 

In questions, you can mark replies as Helpful, Liked or, if it answered your question, click Correct Answer.

Not only does this contribute to the Point System and Status Level, but people searching for an answer to the same question will know there is a solution. It also gives the person that contributed a warm fuzzy feeling inside!

Updates on the Community

 

SPAM and Account Creation Moderation

With the deployment of the Jive 8 platform, we have gained some improved spam prevention tools. Without going into too much detail, the upshot is that have been able to switch off new user account moderation, so people can register and get involved straight away. We've tested the new measures with much success, but of course we'll continue to monitor as we want to ensure that the community content stays of the highest quality.

 

The Connected Community survey

The The Connected Community survey has now closed, thank you to everyone that contributed. We deployed a survey to two groups, one aimed globally and one at the Chinese community, with a combined response rate of over 400. The Community is built for you, and we'll be using your feedback to plan and deploy improvements over the next few months. I'll keep you up to date with developments as the are deployed.

 

If you participated and left your email address, I will be applying your badge over the next week. Thank you!

Hello!

 

With albanrampon  exit from ARM earlier this month, Connected community’s administration now rests with my colleague songbin & I.


These names may be unfamiliar to some of you. So introductions are certainly in order. songbin  has been with the Connected Community since its very inception, and takes great care of the community's Chinese chapter, besides undertaking general management. I've been with ARM now for eight years now and currently manage India MarComm & PR . Though my involvement with the Connected Community is temporary (until we land a good replacement for Alban), I’m trying to get up to to speed and support the best way I can. In this phase, songbin is the main community manager. A couple of our users have been very proactive in bringing forward matters which needed our attention. A few others have extended a helping hand. To me, that is as ‘communal’ as as a community could get.


Thank you very much for the support & the understanding.

 

Administrative Updates

  • Platform upgrade discussions for ARM CC has been keeping us busy. But a project schedule and a task list is now fully in place and the upgrade should help us deliver a better user experience, along side better administration tools. We will be spending a considerable time testing current customizations and new features before they eventually get rolled out to you.
  • jordmci, our intern in UK who has been extremely helpful in running the community and in several other aspects, completes his internship on Sep 25th. We wish him the best of luck in his academics and his career.
  • After meeting & interviewing several candidates, we’ve narrowed down on a Community specialist to further support the community. He will be joining our UK office early October.

Featured Events

  • ARM Tech Symposias are occurring in many of your regions starting with an October 13th kick off at Bangalore, India. Registration page for the India event is now live and is available here.

Update on the Community

Bye Bye and a Huge Thank You!

KeepCalm_JoinARMConnectedCommunity.jpgAfter ~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.

 

Since September 4th, your main community manager has been 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 is 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 is 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.

Ash, Michele and Mark stay community owners and you'll find the group back on the homepage on the top left.

 

Community Upgrade

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.

 

Featured Content

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.

 

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.

20150729_WeChatQRCodeDemo.PNGUpdate on the Community

The spammers keep on trying so Ben and I have put the account moderation back on. I understand this is a barrier to the initial contribution, but having our community of spam is not an option.

 

Community Platform Upgrade

The planning phase was completed last Friday. All community developments were done in such a way that we can upgrade safely with minimum work, as expected.

The current phase is deciding on how we are going to do that upgrade, and preparing the prioritization of the redevelopments we want to keep (for instance social media sharing and WeChat/Weixin we rolled out when I was in China early July).

Afterwards, we will upgrade our test environment and that's when we will be able to invite a few of you to receive feedback. With the user interface changes, having your feedback on what we need to explain the most will be important to make the community easy to use to most.

 

Juno ARM Development Platform Renaming

That community was initially created as a private collaboration area until the product was announced publicly. The initial use case was time bound and we were expecting to close that community after deliverables were transferred to Linaro.

However, because the content has been useful to many, including employees, that community will stay! Its scope will widen to cater for more ARM development platforms. Let's clarify how this community will interact with the existing tools community:

  • Software Development Tools: DS-5, MDK-ARM, Fast Models, third party, open source tools... and how to use them with your application.
  • ARM Development Platform: To use the open source software stack Linaro supplies on ARM's hardware development platforms & models (Foundation model...).

We will do the change of name and URL in a couple of weeks to leave time to community visitors to see this notice!

We exceeded the 10,000 members Birthday_Cake_lots_of_candles_social_logos_300[1].png

 

alex09huang is our 10,000th member

 

Alex joined on Monday and is from China. That is a testimony to the great growth we have had in China. Alex works for an ARM Partner, a famous electronics technology company in China.

We started at the end of 2013 with less than 60 pieces of content, a very small audience and no engagement at all.

 

Alex, we would like to send you a gift. Can you send me your postal address by private message if you wish to receive something from us?

 

China Flag.pngThanks to songbin's dedication and good humour, 中文社区 is the community with the most engagement per post in the ARM Connected Community!

We have more than 2,000 members in China, more than 800 pieces of content and at least an answer to every questions asked!

 

 

But 10k is not enough. We haven't promoted the English community lately and the numbers have expectedly slowed down.

Want to join our team?

I'm recruiting for a community specialist to help ARM on that. If you are interested, contact me privately on Alban.Rampon@arm.com.

I'll comment with a link to the application when it's online. Please help spread to your network!

 

Thank you all for your contribution, we are not even 2 years old yet!

Update on the Community

Maintenance_Downtime_.jpgMaintenance Next Tuesday Afternoon (US) - Wednesday Morning (APAC, EMEAI)

We have identified a bug which could lead to delete all documents when deleting a user. To roll out the patch, we will need to have a downtime for maintenance.

The maintenance is planned for Tuesday 23 June at 4pm US Pacific time. It means very early morning for Europe (1:00 CEST) and 7am for Shanghai on Wednesday 24th.

The downtime planned is under one hour. As usual, we will remove the banner on the homepage when the maintenance is finished.

 

Community Platform Upgrade

We have started the work to upgrade the community to the latest revision of the software. This will have several effects for current members and visitors:

  • User interface update: on top of changing some colours, we will be able to have more helpful menus to help you navigate the community. The colour scheme should overall be less toned down.
  • Bug fixing: the upgrade should address numerous bugs you may have observed. Of course, it might bring a few new ones too
  • New features
    • Android mobile app: the possibility to have push notifications on Android will return. We unfortunately lost it in January due to app updates from our supplier.NewPlatformLogin.png
    • Community pages: for each community, we will have the ability to have additional tabs/pages. This will allow us to have introductions and links to other sites.
    • Better mobile support: you can already use the community on your mobile phone. On top of the mobile apps, we will have a responsive web design to best fit the different screen sizes for those who can't or don't want to use the dedicated mobile applications.

The start of the work was delayed so I am not able to yet give you a relaunch date. The target has been to have the new version available to everyone between mid-August and mid-September.

Our aim is to stay close to the standard product to ease upgrades. If you are interested in having early access and help us shape it, comment here or contact me privately. This community is primarily for you!


Single Sign On - One Login for the Main ARM Sites

I understand having different login details depending on which site you browse is a big ask. There are quite a few reasons why it was done this way (time out, little info asked from community members, service availability, spam prevention...) but we are working on improving that. Part of the requirements we have put forward is being able to login with the email address, and with external identity providers (social networks, OpenID...). Once the project is approved and we have internal processes in place, I will be able to give more information. Today is too early to tell you what it will look like and which features we will support.

However, I can tell you that our goal is to simplify the current processes for employees, partners and individual contributors.

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 Single Board Computers which is now available without login. songbin 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.

Software Development Tools Community

We have now renamed the ARM and Keil Tools community to Software Development Tools. Last week, we informed you of the wish to open up that community to more partners, and also recognise that the Cortex Microcontroller Software Interface Standard (CMSIS) is a standard used by silicon and development tools partners.

 

Embedded Computer Boards

Early April, we started to promote the Embedded Computer Board (ECB/SBC) selector guide. Interviews and other embedded content has been regularly posted in the Embedded community and, as planned, partners have started to contact us to grow that selector guide.

From the guide, you can use a combination of sorting, filtering and text search to find the board you need for your next project. The screenshot below illustrates how you can select the ARM core you want (eg. ARM Cortex-A15), and use text to refine the search (eg. Tegra). Then, in the Ref(erence) column, you can click on the board you want (eg.SECOMExp-TK1) to get more detailed description from our Partner (eg SECO).

Update on the Community

This week is ARM Mali Graphics Week - April 13 -17, 2015. I invite you to review that blog daily to find the newly published information which will be added there by ryan.booth and elliestone, your ARM Mali Graphics community owners.

 

We are currently thinking about renaming the ARM and Keil Tools community to Software Development Tools. This would widen its scope and also acknowledge that CMSIS (Cortex Microcontroller Software Interface Standard) is not limited to ARM provided tools but applicable to all tools! Its URL would stay the same as today, and is also available at http://cc.arm.com/tools.

Would anyone see an objection to that name change?

20150414_iOS_Smart_Banner_PROD.PNG

 

The weekly digest that you receive weekly by default is based on your network.

I have made a change to make it clearer in the email. It means that if you only subscribed to non-active members, the same content may be sent to you for several weeks as it will be the latest content available there. The search and recommendation engine is using your activity, contributions and subscriptions to automatically generate these (= we have no influence in them, you choose). As you become more active and start to follow content, members and communities in your different streams, the content you receive will be increasingly pertinent, useful.

 

Promoting the iOS Mobile App - Smart Banner

A few members have asked if a mobile app was available. Even if we have documented this in Mobile App, iOS, Android - Guide, I admit this is not necessarily obvious. So, we have now added the smart banner for iOS devices. You will now see what you have on the right hand side. Until we work to get an ARM Connected Community branded app, you will need to enter community.arm.com in the "Jive URL" field at the first app start-up, before you can enter your username (not you email address) and password.

By default, most of your details are not shared, even with other members in order to respect your privacy. Therefore, when you populate your profile, also think about reviewing your privacy settings.

For instance, if you wish others to know what your job title is, then on top of filling the form, you need to select who will be able to read the information.

There are 4 levels:

  1. Everyone: any visitor
  2. Registered users: visible to logged in members
  3. Connections: visible to people you follow
  4. Yourself: visible to you and system administrators.

Update on the Community

The top horizontal scroll bar on the Embedded Computing Board (ECB) Resource Guide (login required) has been added. This should help filtering. I have noticed an issue with some Internet Explorer versions that I will investigate.

Thank you for the feedback we already received. It will be included in the next revision of the selector guide.

Since we launched in October 2013, we have implemented more than 80 features and fixes. But we have been using the same underlying platform software version. We will soon be starting the work to upgrade the underlying software. The new version has more features and has a slightly different user interface, based on the feedback from the different communities. This will also be the occasion to change the theme, and make it a bit more colourful. We will consult the most active members to help us shape the new version.

Tip - Update Your Marketing Newsletter Preferences ( != Community)

The community does not push any marketing information to you. You decide to subscribe to/follow different communities, members and pieces of content to get receive updates about topics you are interested in.

ARM also provides the more classic way of getting information: email newsletters. From the News community right column, you can subscribe and edit your newsletter preferences.

Update on the Community

ARM_Connected_Community_Community_ECB.pngYesterday, we launched the ARM based Embedded Computing Boards (ECB) to allow members to find their next ARM-based production board. The selector guide, and explanations on how to use it, are available from Single Board Computers for every logged in member. I am working on adding an horizontal scroll bar at the top of the table so you can more easily view even before you use the local search/filters/sorting.

Tip - New Members: How to Bypass Moderation

Because we are still under attack by spammers, we keep on reviewing new accounts manually.

When Song Bin 宋斌 and I are unsure about an account, it is approved but put under moderation.

The more details you have put on the registration form, the easier for us it is to be confident you are a legitimate member.

This is not compulsory and we respect your privacy
