The Arm DevSummit follows the original name of Armâs conference (Arm TechCon). While the annual eventâs predecessors used to involve large in-person gatherings, due to the risk of COVID-19, this yearâs Arm event will cater to online-only attendees.
The DevSummit will cover a great many areas of bleeding-edge technology, particularly for the interest of software designers and hardware developers. As Simon Segars, Armâs CEO says: âour software and hardware ecosystems [will] converge to share best practices, tackle industry challenges, and dive into the latest advancements in mobile, artificial intelligence, machine learning, IoT, 5G, hyperscale, and automotiveâ.
