From gaining proper experience working with tools and systems such as Docker, Jenkins, and LAVA, and attaining valuable insight into how Linux runs ???under the hood??? and how to build (first time!) the Linux kernel myself tuned to my requirements, my time as a Software Engineer Intern was a very rewarding experience. My understanding of concepts related to cross-building, sysroots, the Linux filesystem, the boot process, containers, linkers, and dependency management were really strengthened as a whole.
