We have designed SODIUM Developer Kit (SDK) as a development environment that contains all the necessary tools and programs already installed and configured for compiling and running SODIUM.

- Provide our students a the possibility of starting working on the devleopment of an operating system right away without having to dedicate time and effort configuring the environment for themselves.

- Introduce our students to useful tools that, in general, were not exploited:

  • Software versioning tools (SVN)
  • Navigating, editing, and transfering files from/to a Windows host (Samba)
  • Virtualization/Emulation Software (VMware, VirtualBox, Bochs)

- Reduce the errors produced by an incorrect environment configuration.

- Allow for a better collaboration between students by providing a unified platform from which the only diffences will be on code, not on environment.

- Allow the professors follow the advances of the alumni, in order to provide assistance and respond questions about the assignments.

Technical Details
