Create State of the Art Documentation for FDIO -- (PROJECT COMPLETED)

  • Title: Create State of the Art Documentation for FDIO
  • FDIO Description: (Fast data - Input/Output) is a collection of several projects and libraries to amplify the transformation to support flexible, programmable and composable services on a generic hardware platform. FD.io offers the Software Defined Infrastructure developer community a landing site with multiple projects fostering innovations in software-based packet processing towards the creation of high-throughput, low-latency and resource-efficient IO services suitable to many architectures (x86, ARM, and PowerPC) and deployment environments (bare metal, VM, container).
  • Description: Create state of the art documentation for FDIO. However, this is much more than a documentation project. By the end of the internship we expect to go live with the new web site. To do this we expect the developer to use the current documentation to install, build, debug and possibly write a module for FDIO. In the process the developer will improve, convert and create complete and accurate FDIO documentation. The developer to should spend about 50% of his/her time coding and 50% documenting. Depending on the skill level and expertise of the developer we expect we can find the appropriate place in FDIO to focus on. We will be flexible.
  • Additional Information:
  • Desirable Skills: C, Python, Sphinx, readthedocs, git
  • Expected Outcome:
  • Go live with the new Website
  • Developer should have written at least 1 module, fixed some issues
  • Skills Acquired:
  • Developer will get a great overview of many sections of FDIO
  • Developer will learn to write State of The Documents (an important and overlooked skill)
  • Developer will enhance his/her Python, "C" programming skills
  • Difficulty: Medium
