Re: [MirageOS-devel] New to Mirage

Hi Christopher,

That's a splendid and easy to follow blog post about how to swap in the Mirage kernel under Linode.  Figuring out the runes to swap in a unikernel is often a big blocker to many people that don't know Xen.

I'm travelling right now, but will think through putting in more "1 star" difficulty tasks to get started, as you're right that the ones there are a bit large  (and I encourage everyone else on the list to do the same for their own areas and take the time to add some pioneer projects).

One immediate point that comes up is that we need to capture information like yours on the Mirage website, so a pull request that adds this alongside the (very skeleton) EC2 information would be most useful.  I'd quite like to get a version of the website running on Linode to ensure we stay working on it, so any scripting automation would also be useful.

My name is Christopher. I'm a Linux admin, but I've been watching this project for sometime and I'd like to get more involved with it.

I'm not so proficient at coding and I'm looking for something small to get more experience with the code base and how things are done. I did notice the Pioneer Projects but the tasks as they stand now are a bit daunting with reflection to what I know.


If there a particular project that has some bugs that someone could point me in the direction of, that would be most appreciated. Mirage seems like such a large project with many repositories and it makes it a bit difficult to determine where I should be going.

I also got a static blog set up on a Linode instance running a Mirage unikernel. I wrote up a tutorial on how to do it. If someone wants to try it out, I'd be curious to know if I was effective at communicating how to get started with it.


Thank you
