I'm interested in the Gsoc project to create "USB support for HelenOS on BeagleBoard XM and BeagleBone computers". I'm currently an undergraduate sophomore at New York University. I have experience with C and I'm familiar with Linux since I've been using Ubuntu/Mint as my main OS for over a year, but I have not used HelenOS. I've also done some work with Arduino/Rasberry Pi, but not with a BeagleBoard yet either. There are a lot of reference pages to read up on from the Ideas page. Would someone be able answer a few questions once I start reading through them?
I'm also planning on creating a bootable USB for HelenOS to get familiar with it. Is there anything you suggest I do that is either unique to HelenOS or related to this project?
