Still researching more about these softwares…..


Project Thoughts

May 26, 2010 at 3:04 PM | Posted in Proposal Prep | 10 Comments

Sorry guys i was not able to put anything on the blog last week as i was busy with some other stuff…

Well for my project, there were 2-3 topics coming in my mind
1. SQL Services Volunteer project
2. TALOS volunteer project
3. Something on PCB

For my first idea for project SQL Services Volunteer project, it was a bad luck for me that they just pulled the project off… 😦

For my second Idea of project TALOS project, this project is just been started they got privacy policy agreement and there will some confidential information in it which is not be shared out side the TALOS team. and right now i don’t know on which part of TALOS i’ll be working on so i can’t right the project proposal for this one right now, but i’ll consider this to be my project next semester hopefully but i am not sure yet.

For my third idea of project about PCB is I want to compare the legal softwares and open source softwares for designing the PCBs…. right now i haven’t decided which software i’ll be considering for that…. i have researched much about it….

so for writing the research proposal for RES300 i’ll be considering my last two options….. i have to start working on my proposal from today because it is due by 4th June… 🙂
