Okay...I'm new to this message board. I need some advice from all you Linux gurus. I plan on starting my senior project soon and I need some cool ideas.
I like Linux and the only way for me to learn more about Linux and it's kernel is to work on it from a development standpoint. Therefore, I've decided to make my project Linux-based. The only problem is that I don't know where to start. That is why I need some ideas from you guys.
I've taken a Unix Network Programming class and we worked with POSIX, various IPCs, and sockets (I really enjoyed this class). I like to program in C/C++ or Java. I use GCC and VI.
Here are some concepts that I would like to implement into my project. I don't need to implement all of them, but this is the direction that I would like to go with my project:
-Client / Server Programming
-Network Security (encryption)
-QoS (i'm gonna have to read more into this)
-GSM (i'm gonna have to read more into this also)
Do you guys have any cool ideas? I'll be working on this project alone. So nothing too hard or too easy. I wanna do a project that I realistically can handle all by myself. =]
Thanks for your help and ideas!
