Work offered

Kind of work:
As GPS receiver manufacturer we have a lot of GPS receivers to test. The testing of all those receivers generates ‘log’ files. These log files are parsed and the result is saved into a SQLite database. A dynamic web interface presents the database contents allowing us to compare the different log files.

This comprises the fine tuning of the log file parsing and the further optimizationof the dynamic web application presenting the result of the log files.
The parsing is done in TCL and might need additional debugging/testing.
The dynamic web application is a Django project.
