Georgiana Chelu will talk on adding support for an ADC convertor using IIO framework. Aishwarya Pant will talk about improving attribute documentation using abi2doc tool. Arushi Singhal will talk about adding test infrastructure for iptables & to finish the translation layer software that converts from the iptable syntax to that of nftables. Meghna Madhyastha will talk about improving tinydrm driver library in the DRM subsystem. Haneen Mohammed will talk about building Virtual KMS (VKMS) driver to enable a virtual display without the need for hardware display capability.
