Slides available for "NFS over virtio-vsock: Host/guest file sharing for virtual machines"

I have been working on the virtio-vsock host/guest communications mechanism and the first application is file sharing with NFS. NFS is a mature and stable network file system which can be reused to provide host/guest file sharing in KVM.

If you are interested in learning more, check out the slides from my Connectathon 2016 presentation:

QEMU accepted into Google Summer of Code & Outreachy 2016!

I'm delighted to announce that QEMU has been accepted into Google Summer of Code 2016 and Outreachy May-August 2016.

Both GSoC and Outreachy are 12-week full-time remote work internships. Interns work on a QEMU-related project with the support of a mentor from the QEMU community. Interns are paid for their work by the generous funding from Google (GSoC), Red Hat (Outreachy), and/or IBM (Outreachy).

Find out more about the project ideas that have been proposed:

There are two dedicated IRC channels, #qemu-gsoc and #qemu-outreachy, that candidates can use to discuss project ideas with mentors and ask questions.

Good luck to all applicants!
