Open bachelor/diploma projects

The following topics will be open in the school year 2012/2013. Please contact me if you are interested.

  1. Activity Tracking and Comparison Tool for Students' Wiki. The goal is to implement a mediawiki plugin suitable for tracking, comparing, and evaluating students' activity in a wiki. The plugin will be based on previous bachelor project which needs to be extended. (diploma or bachelor)
  2. Connection pooling in the native XML database Sedna. The PHP driver of the native XML database Sedna does not support the connection pooling technique. The goal of this project is to implement a new version of this driver that will add this feature. (diploma or bachelor)

General advice

If you want your project to be supervised by me, please consider that I will require:

  • Regular meetings.
  • Your thesis will be written in English.
  • If your project is related to the matfyz.sk portal you will also actively participate in the portal (e.g., as blogger).
  • You may be asked to present your work to our research group or even outside the school on several occasions.

There is a great guide for students by Alan Bundy from University of Edinburgh. Do not hesitate to read it. I also put into your consideration the ancient Chinese philosophical tractatus Lun Yu, which collects discourses between the philosopher Confucius and his scholars. (Great Slovak translation. There is also a free online English translation, but it reads much harder.)
