For the ARM project, it would be good to get familiar with Xen on ARM, to learn how to build it: https://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/Xen_ARM_with_Virtualization_Extensions#Building_Xen_on_ARM and use QEMU to emulate an ARM board to run Xen on it, for testing and development: https://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/Xen_ARM_with_Virtualization_Extensions/qemu-system-aarch64 Feel free to ask any questions! > Regards > Lars > > > From: KANIKA SAINI <kanika16...@iiitd.ac.in> > Date: Wednesday, 14 February 2018 at 17:25 > To: Lars Kurth <lars.ku...@citrix.com> > Subject: Excited for Xen Project in Outreachy > > Greetings, Lars. > > I'm Kanika Saini and I'm super excited to begin contributing to Xen! > > I seek guidance in choosing the suitable sub-project in Xen according to my > skill set.
