Re: [GSoC 2022] Introducing myself & seeking for project ideas

Theo,

Sorry for leaving you on read!

CC'ing Nate as he knows a lot more about MinPlatform than I do!

Meanwhile, you can also take a look at the MinPlatform spec: https://edk2-docs.gitbook.io/edk-ii-minimum-platform-specification/
Since you're new to UEFI, you may also want to take a brief look (don't read it front-to-back, that's almost useless) at the UEFI spec: https://uefi.org/sites/default/files/resources/UEFI_Spec_2_8_final.pdf

Thanks,
Pedro

Hi Pedro,
Thanks a lot for your answer!

My bad then :') After taking a look at the tasks proposal lists I'm interested in the MinPlatform port to QEMU [1], of course, I'm open to other projects ideas that are not on the list. 

To talk about myself a little more, I have a bachelor's in computer science and it's my first year as a Master's student, and I took the embedded systems programming branch to learn more about operating systems, booting, and how systems work in general :) I'm only starting in the field but I have a lot of fun making the software interact with the hardware, and understanding how computers work under the hood.

And you are right, larger projects are way better to learn :) 

Best regards,
Théo
