 We have a number of areas we can use help with.  Since our focus is on creating network boot code, it is important that you be comfortable with low-level programming -- that is, C and possibly some x86 assembler (though this is not essential for many projects, and you can pick it up as you go along). ​ You should also understand that efficiencies of code size, runtime size, and execution speed are important to us.  Low-level, or "​bare-metal"​ programming requires patience and focus, but the sense of control and deep understanding of what is happening, and why, can be very exhilarating. ​ We have a number of areas we can use help with.  Since our focus is on creating network boot code, it is important that you be comfortable with low-level programming -- that is, C and possibly some x86 assembler (though this is not essential for many projects, and you can pick it up as you go along). ​ You should also understand that efficiencies of code size, runtime size, and execution speed are important to us.  Low-level, or "​bare-metal"​ programming requires patience and focus, but the sense of control and deep understanding of what is happening, and why, can be very exhilarating. ​
