My name is Slawomir Cygan (Slawek is for short), I’m a 3rd-year
undergraduate at Gdansk Univeristy of Technologi, ETI (Electronics,
Telecomunication, Information) faculty, located in Poland. I’ve
already got familiar with Tcl, it would be a pleasure for me to
improve it during this GSOC.
I’ve gained experience in Tcl by doing some medium projects, one was
an application for mass production testing of electronic circuits
(that were used for serial line communications multiplexing). It was
written in pure Tcl, utilizing server-client architecture and simple
protocol developed by me. Also there was a simple Tk user interace
designed for client.
Other interesting project, now under development, is a Linux
distribution, Tcl based, for embedded devices. The aim is to produce
system like old Etlinux, with ability of easy of remote management
and scalability (these devices will form a large network). This
project is partially in C as extensions, due to necessity of
replacing some Linux core utils.
Besides Tcl, I have fair skills in C, C++, linux kernel programming
(ok, it’s also C) and SQL . You can see ome of them here .
The idea I’m concerned most is “Tcl Application Server”. I’m thinking
of developing a standardized, easy to use web application interface,
that could be used not only with Wub. It would provide developers with
ability to develop web applications as rapidly and easily, as tcl
allows them in other domains. Besides basic features like auth and
tdbc incorporation, interface would cover MVC oriented Servlet API and
persistence classes done Tcl-way. I would appreciate any advices about
needs of Tcl community in this subject.
Another project, I’m taking into account is “TDBC Driver Development”
As I said, I’m looking forward comments and suggestions.
