short whoami Hello! I’m Diego Roux, an undergraduate engineering student at Universidad Iberoamericana (Mexico). Passionate about low-level stuff, OS/kernel dev, embed libs, and more! I’m grateful to be working under Haiku for this GSoC! So, I’ll be working to add support for sound virtio, enhancing virtualization by working with the VM. I’ll be under the guidance of @Korli. Thanks! :D brief intro + my plans Whenever we boot a VM with Haiku in it, it needs to ensure we have a proper environment, emulating all physical devices we require (e.
