Siddh spent his summer working on bugs affecting the Linux kernel. He sent his first patch as a part of screening tasks, which piqued his motivation more as a kernel newbie.

Siddh was mentored by experienced kernel developers - Shuah Khan, and Pavel Skripkin - who provided invaluable knowledge and support during the course of the mentorship. He consequently found his way to exploring multiple kernel subsystems, contributing patches upstream, and interacting over the mailing list.
