Polish localisation (l12n) of WIMS (WWW Interactive Multipurpose Server), development of user support

rodzaj praca: inżynierski, specjalność: oprogramowanie wolne

The WIMS online mathematics/physics exercise/examination web server (GPL/LGPL) makes it easier for students to avoid the temptation to cheat in arithmetical, algebraic and geometrical exercises and examinations, decreases lecturers' need to rewrite statistically similar but new exercises every semester, and increases the objectivity of students' gradings. The package is presently localised in several languages (en fr it es nl cn si ca), but there is no pl localisation. The initial aim of the project would be Polish language localisation of the package, following the present internationalisation structures in it. The work would partly consist of literal translation, but would require knowledge of physics and understanding of the required syntax, managing files, and publicly communicating with the developers. The package should be prepared for one of the main web server GNU/Linux distributions, i.e. debian and/or gentoo. It would probably be useful to follow the example of wims-extra-es in debian. The student should give a workshop type seminar at WFAiIS in order to help faculty learn how to use the localised package. A benefit of this project would be that the student would necessarily gain familiarity with a wide variety of free software mathematical packages used as WIMS' backends, e.g. octave, maxima, pari-gp and latex. ,

GNU Data Language - development of missing functions

rodzaj praca: inżynierski, specjalność: oprogramowanie wolne

The GNU Data Language (GDL) implements a high level language widely used by astronomers and in geosciences. As of GDL-0.9~rc4, GDL is claimed to have full syntax compatibility with IDL(TM) 6.0 and later and to support all IDL(TM) language elements. However, bug reports need to be checked, and many routines have not yet been coded, including those listed at as well as others such as the SWAP_ENDIAN family. The student would be expected to communicate publicly and productively with the GDL upstream developers. Contributions to distribution level packaging (e.g. debian, gentoo) could also constitute part of this project. ,
