My ELISA Mentorship

By January 11, 2023Blog, ELISA Summit, Mentorship

Shefali Sharma, a senior student at the Meerut Institute of Engineering and Technology in India, was a mentee of the ELISA Project starting in March 2022. Her mentors were Shuah Khan, Linux Fellow and Kernel Maintainer at the Linux Foundation and Chair of the ELISA Technical Steering Committee at that time, and Milan Lakhani, Co-Chair of the ELISA Medical Devices Working Group and Software Engineer at Codethink. During her mentorship, Shefali learned a lot about the Linux kernel, Core C programming, and various tools and techniques for analyzing the kernel like strace, ftrace, cscope, perf. 

Shefali will be sharing her key learnings on Thursday, January 19 at 12:33-12:43 am ET at the LFX Mentorship Showcase, a virtual event that gives Linux Foundation mentees an opportunity to present their experience with their mentorship. This virtual event, which takes place on January 18-19, is free to attend and open to anyone who would like to learn more about the experiences of LF Mentorship Program mentees, find out more about some of the programs our projects are working on, recruit new talent, and support new developer contributions. Register for the free event here.

If you can’t make the LFX Mentorship Showcase, you can check out her findings in this video from the ELISA Summit (September 2022) about kernel tracing.
