Very glad to meet you guys. I hope I can contribute to CIP.

I'm trying to understand insight of CIP based some public materials from your
team. And then I will go to check kernel project. On my side I'm curious if
anyone started working Preempt RT CIP Kernel. In addition, I'd like to take look
at if CIP need virtualization support. Based on my job, I think HW virtualization
can play very important role in some IoT cases. In addition, KSPP is also my

Go back to Unikernel exploration, I think at least you can find this,

Actually this is my personal proposal so it's still at the early stage. Maybe you
also can find this somewhere else because this year I talked this similar
presentation at LinuxCon China, Open Source Summit North America, Open
Source Summit Europe & Embedded Linux Conference Europe and RT-Summit
Europe. You know, I was trying to collect some valuable comments and
feedback to issue my development. So I'm also looking forward to any thought
from you. Thank you in advance.

I'm very interest in participating in CIP.

Name: Tiejun Chen
Company: VMware
Position/Role: Staff Engineer/Technical Leader Why you are
on: I'm working on some industrial IoT projects and explorations at
VMware. It
involves Linux development like trimming down/Paravirtualizing
Preempt-RT Linux as Guest OS. And I'm also working on my personal
Unikernel project, UniLinux, Unilernelize Linux. And, I ever was
responsible of Wind River Linux Kernel/BSP development including
Preempt-RT kernel. After that I also working on enabling HW feature to
KVM/Xen/Qemu at Intel OTC. So I'd like to continue this kind of job.
Especially, I totally agree that we need this industrial grade Linux.

nice to meet you. Thanks for your kind offering.

Please check the following links in case you see something you might
be interested on or call your attention:
* CIP kernel maintenance:

Maybe you can start by checking the kernel. Feel free to ask questions
through this list. Ben Hutchings and Daniel Wagner are the maintainers.
is the

* CIP Testing project:

Maybe you can check the latest version and downloading B@D v1.0 if you
are interested in kernel testing.

* CIP Core:

We released a few days ago a first attempt of what should become CIP
base system. Feel free to check it out and let us know what you think about it.

Maybe you already have something else in mind where you can contribute
to. In such case, please let us know. It would be great to find an
area of interest for you that makes an impact in the project. This is
frequently the hardest part about joining a project. Let's try to find it together.

By the way, is your unikernel project open? It would be interesting if
you can provide us some links. It sounds interesting.
