Google Summer of Code - RTEMS
Hi everyone! My name is Muhammad Sulthan Mazaya, I'm currently studying at Bandung Institute of Technology in my 6th semester as an Engineering Physics student. I have a very big passion for software engineering in general, so much so I have interned 3 times as a software engineer, won various hackathons, and built software stuff for my student organizations just so I can learn to code even more! I have worked in various projects including: web development, mobile development, microcontrollers, etc. I aspire to be an IoT engineer, I always love and am curious to learn more about low-level systems, especially embedded systems.
That is why, I decided to choose RTEMS Project for my GSoC organization. Other than that, I have always wanting to contribute to an open source. Given the opportunity to do so while learning things that I like is something I am very grateful and thankful for 😊
Community Bonding Period
During this period, I will spend my time to align communication channels, deliverables, and expectations throughout this summer with my mentors. While doing that, I will also try to familiarize myself with the community and hopefully start contributing to bug fixes or feature implementation that the users/developers of RTEMS need. Related to my project, I will also spend my time to do the following:
Familiarize myself with the RTEMS codebase (especially
If I can wrap my head around it quickly enough, I will also start working on writing the build recipe of renode in the
Start figuring out how to use Renode features (gdb debugging and network testing)
I have been able to run
riscv/kendrytek210on Renode thanks to Alan :) Soon, I will try to use the gdb and network testing tools that it provide (I will try to document this in the RTEMS docs as one of my GSoC deliverables).
Well I guess that's my first GSoC blog, hopefully the project will goes successfully implemented into RTEMS :)
