Call for mentors and admins

Hey all, have you updated the ideas page recently? With BeagleV and BeagleConnect (https://github.com/jadonk/beagleconnect), I think we could have some really interesting projects this year. Also, lots more to do on BeagleBone AI and even librobotcontrol, blinka, etc.

Who’s in this year?

Hi Jason,

is BeagleV already available?

It would be interesting to see some projects in IoT with risc-v. Maybe
something involving https://github.com/lf-edge? (though, it seems
starfive doesn't have hypervisor instructions).

Hi Jason,

No. Just a few right now. I’m looking to reserve some in March/April when there are a few more for GSoC. General availability won’t be until September.

I never registered in my mind what LF Edge was. Are there any working instances of it? Does it compete with something like Balena?

I believe some companies are trying to sell LF Edge products and they
are also core devs there, e.g.: https://zededa.com/
But since starfive doesn't support virtualization yet, I don't think it
is possible to do something meaningful for example with LF Edge EVE project.
Though, there are other projects in LF Edge, here is their roadmap:

Excited to help admin this year!!!

Hi Jason,

Would love to help mentor for BeagleBone AI & BeagleV projects.

Is there any possibility of adding any BioMedical project this year?

As COVID-19 pandemic hit us so hard with the scarcity of Ventilators and BioMedical Equipment. I believe It would be awesome to see a platform coming from BeagleBoard.org for patient monitoring OR something like that. I am up for mentoring and working on such a project if BeagleBoard.org is ready to take the challenge.

Happy to see great projects coming from BeagleBoard.org this year, very excited for BeagleV.

Regards,
Deepak Khatri

I guess I’m a little late to the party, but I’m always happy to help out with the GSoC mentoring. Just let me know if/where you need me.

Chai Bio’s Open qPCR uses BeagleBone Black. Can we tie that in somehow?

I have one unit and both COVID kits. Can we do something to improve it in software?

Hi Jason,

I have used qPCR machines but never got the chance to work on one. I will have to look into the project to tell you where I can help and if we can take that as a project for this summer OR maybe next summer depending on the setup complexity it comes with.

I am assuming you referred to me when you asked to put time on your calendly, If that’s the case I’ll do it ASAP. Please confirm.

Happy to help with BeagleConnect, or anything else that needs mentors

Hi All - Few hours left
Students can register and submit their applications to mentor organizations. All proposals must be submitted by April 13, 2021 13:00 (Central Daylight Time).

Sorry I did not confirm. Yes, don’t hesitate next time to get on my calendar.

Do you mind adding yourself to http://bbb.io/gsocideas and signing up on https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com?
