I have almost completed my MCA project “Network based multi-platform backup solution”, with in few days i will surely complete this entire project and i need to show the project demo to my project guide Mr. G. Senthilkumar.

My next assignment is mostly related to web so i need to get practice on html and http packages. I have no idea about these packages so it will take some time…

Today i have completed all my works in “iShare App” project, my colleague Sounthar designed the entire GUI part. And finally we have the working version of iShare App.

Today i got placed in to a new project “iShare App”, which is similar to “Drop Box”. We planned to finish it with in this month. I have already worked with the stuffs related to this project so i think it is not too tough to me. We planned to use gtk library for GUI part.
