Hello, I am Gabriel Kis an undergraduate student in Electrical Engineering at Unicamp (Brazil). I am very interested on contributing to BeagleBoard, particularly the idea "Update Cape compatibility layer" which is about something that I like, that is low level peripherals drivers, but I don't know if it is a too hard first issue.

The languages that I am most used to are C and python. In C I mostly program on embedded devices (ST, Nordic and Espressif) and already used ceedling framework for unit testing C code. And python I used for unit/integration tests with multiple devices through pytest. However I am not used to develop the linux-kernel and contribute to open-source projects.

I just entered the channel on IRC, should ask questions about the project there?
Thanks

Hello, I am Gabriel Kis, a sixth year undergraduate student on Electrical Engineering at Unicamp (Brazil) and I am very interested to contribute to GSoC this year.
The Idea that caught my attention is "Update Cape compatibility layer", but I don't know if it is a too hard first issue. I have experience in C and Python, in C I am used to program embedded systems firmware (ST, Nordic and Espressif) and in one project I also did unit tests with ceedling framework and in Python I worked mostly with unit/integration tests on a device. However I am not used to develop linux-kernel and to contribute to open-source projects.
I have just joined IRC channel, should I ask questions about the project there?

Thanks

Hey Gabriel,

I am the author of the Cape Compatibility layer (GSoC'20) and would help you out with your queries. Please be active on the IRC and regularly ask your questions. The cape compatibility layer requires some updates for the newer kernel and the inclusion of a new patch for uBoot for auto cape detection and Device Tree overlay loading. These things might be new to you but, don't worry you'll gain all the knowledge as we progress. See you in today's meeting on IRC!

Regards,
