Rascals are always sociable, and the chief sign that a man has any nobility in his character is the little pleasure he takes in others company. Arthur Schopenhauer

ARM is the acronym for Advanced RISC Machines and if it is not followed by a noun, it refers to a family of processors (CPUs) that are designed based on the architecture developed by Arm Ltd., a British company based in Cambridge, England. The RISC is another acronym which stands for Reduced Instruction Set Computer and comes as an alternative to CISC which stands for Complex Instruction Set Computer, used by Intel processors. You may find their main differences bellow, but for the purpose of this workshop, just keep in mind the reduced instruction set (as the term implies) as well as the larger number of general purpose registers of the RISC based machines.
