Teklogic - Midrand, South Africa
At this point, after nearly four years of Pascal development, I
discovered the newer "C" language.
Started coding in "C" on
under the RSX11M Operating System
and soon thereafter, switched to the Integrated Development Environment
. I contributed to the development of a library
for a windows-like Graphic User Interface (GUI) that would run on the
serial (RS232), monochrome, character based,
Having successfully completed a Project Management course at Executive
Education, Johannesburg, I undertook, as Project Manager a feasibility
study for the development of a system that required what is today known
as the HyperText Markup Language (HTML) standard. The client had asked
us to investigate whether it would be financially viable to build a system
(hardware and software) that would provide designers, manufacturers and
testers of military equipment storage of a library of documents, which
would allow searching and viewing documents that contained "dynamic links"
that would enable link to or zoom into electronic modules, to display
lists of components, test routines, or other documents or drawings.
The project was executed at the highest standard, within budget and on schedule.
The detailed report that it produced provided details of all the latest
technology and the client's options for putting together such system.
At Teklogic, I was given the opportunity to study the concept of PC Networking
and was assigned the task of "network administrator" for a 25 users Novell Netware
network. The users shared servers hard disk resources, printers and various
software, of which the most prominent was the WordStar 2000 word-processor.
