As you may or may not be aware, there are tons (and I mean tons) of things going on right now around Linaro and 96Boards. Being involved in international hackathons, participating in the North American Embedded Linux Conference in Oregon (USA), giving our forums an overhaul(gamification for the win), and we have teamed up with Canonical's Ubuntu Core team for a special OpenHours miniseries around the DragonBoard 410c... Believe it or not, but that is just this week's news. Not to mention, Linaro Connect(Budapest) is right around the corner. Be sure to check out our line up of keynote speakers and our session schedule. Everything at Connect is live streamed and video are also eventually posted as well, don't miss out.
Be sure to check us out! Take a picture in front of our booth, tag #lfelc and Tweet us at @96Boards / @Linaro and we will make it next week's "Picture of the week" :D
OpenHours Ubuntu Core seres - Part 2/3
OpenHours has teamed up with Canonical to bring you a month full of nothing but Ubuntu Core. Now, while we intend on talking about Ubuntu Core, we will undoubtably be relating this amazing light weight operating system to its use on 96Boards. This week (today in less than an hour - JOIN NOW to secure your spot) we will be meeting with Oliver Grawert to talk about his development experience around Ubuntu Core. Oliver (Also known as Ogra) specializes in the Ubuntu Core images, hardware enablement and also producing snaps. We look forward to seeing you in the call.
Anyone on the call is welcome to ask questions about anything Linaro and 96Boards, while we have set topics for the week, all are welcome to ask questions and participate.

Qualcomm and 96Boards Hackathon with Tecnológico de Monterrey, Mexico - Smart Cities with DragonBoard 410c
If you would have told me last year that 96Boards and Linaro would be teamed up with Qualcomm in sponsoring a Smart Cities hackathon for a highly esteemed university in Chihuahua Mexico, I would not have believed you. Here we are today, running a week long series of intense workshops with over 120 engineering students around the 96Boards Dragonboard 410c. This hackathon will take place from February 24th to February 26th (non-stop, 50 hours) at the Tecnológico de Monterrey university.
If you are interested in following these efforts and cheering on these very hard working students, please keep an eye on our YouTube and Twitter channels for live streams and Tweets!
