With 100+ sessions, 200+ speakers & tons of sponsors , Arm DevSummit is going to kick-off next month. It will take place virtually from October 6-8, 2020. Arm DevSummit is Arm’s new flagship annual conference bringing the best of Arm TechCon with an expanded focus of the technical conference for both software developers and hardware designer’s communities. It is a replacement for the long running Arm TechCon(15+ Years) with a new focus on software developers.
Arm DevSummit 2020 will solely be a virtual conference in 2020. It is a newly announced technology conference presented by Arm and its ecosystem that will take place exclusively online next month virtually. The event includes keynotes, technical sessions, BoFs, panels, tech talks, and comes with much more exciting agenda. Program highlights include immersive keynotes from Arm, Netflix, Volkswagen, Microsoft, and more , online networking with industry peers, technical sessions and workshops where software developers and hardware designers can advance their skills to the next level. The program will cover topics from best practices for cloud-native and mobile app development, tackle industry challenges for autonomous technology to deep dives in machine learning, IoT, infrastructure as well as explore the latest advancements in chip design. It is a completely new event designed for software and hardware engineers focused on the latest advancements in mobile, HPC, autonomous technology, AI, ML, IoT and chip design.
What’s cool about this conference?
Arm DevSummit 2020 virtual conference brings engineers and developers from both software and hardware into one place to learn, exchange knowledge, discuss real-world use cases and solutions and get hands-on with expert-led, deep-dive trainings and workshops. Arm DevSummit is where software and hardware meet. It’s the place that engineers and developers connect and collaborate on the latest applications and the semiconductor solutions that enable them.
During this technical conference, engineers and developers will advance their skills to the next level with best practices for cloud native and mobile development, tackle industry challenges for autonomous technology, machine learning, IoT and infrastructure, all the way to exploring the latest advancements in chip design.
Arm and its ecosystem provide deep insight into foundational hardware, enabling software development teams to build, deploy and manage the world’s best performing, richest and most impactful next-generation experiences through artificial intelligence, automotive, internet of things (IoT), security and 5G.
This year’s event includes eight technical tracks covering all aspects of Arm and Arm ecosystem solutions.
- AI in the Real World: From Development to Deployment
- Building the IoT: Efficient, Secure and Transformative Software Development
- Chip Design Methodology
- Cloud Native Developer Experience
- Creating the Next Generation of Interactive Experiences
- Infrastructure of Modern Computing
- Tech for Global Goals: The World’s Largest To-Do List

This year I’m excited about RedisAI & Redis Streams talk from Redis Labs. Andre Srinivasan, Global Solution Architect will be talking about how combination of ARM , Redis Streams & Redis AI work for Low Latency Inferencing at the Edge. As I am currently working on Redis AI on NVIDIA Jetson Nano board for my Pico 2.0 project, I believe that this talk is going to be super useful for me.
I am also excited to attend “Cloud Native Development with Docker deployed on Arm” talk by Justin Cormack, Docker Inc. & Marc Meunier, ARM.
Arm DevSummit is a new kind of hands-on and minds-on technology event. It’s built around the notion of connections; connecting global communities of software developers and hardware engineers across all fields in one forum so everyone learns and collaborates, helping to create an even more successful future for everyone. As promised, here are top 5 reasons why you shouldn’t miss out ARM DevSummit:
