Do not take this page too seriously. I tried thinking about spoddy skills to put down on my CV and this is what came out (sort of). I wouldn't take this page as absolute, but I think it makes a good guide.
Below are listed technological things which I have experience. I have
rated them all from 1 meaning I know a little bit about them, to 10
meaning that I am a reasonable expert. I did try drawing up
definitions for all the levels in between but it didn't work out.
This is no way an exhaustive list, just the things I thought of at the time.
|Modern Object Oriented programming language
|Java Server Pages
|A way of embeddeding java statements into webpages.
|A way of producing dynamic web content. It is like a java engine to sit inside the web server. Quite groovy because the server loads of the program once, and then each user accessing it runs as a different thread.
|Another database management system. Recently taken over by IBM.
|Operating system which was around about 15 years ago, precursor to Windows NT and java. This is how I got into real computers. Now it is used in set top boxes for digital TV.
|Denford Millcam Designer
|Simple piece of CAM software used in UK Schools
|Intel Proshare/Business Video Conferencing
|Video and data conferencing software
|Windows NT Server/Workstation
|html (and XHTML)
|Document Markup Language. But also how to make websites which are browser independant, validate and are understood by search engines.
|Another (newer) more general document markup language
|Cascading Style Sheets - separate style from content in html
|Desktop operating system
|Server Side scripting for the WWW
|Server Side scripting for the WWW but made by MS for NT.
|Microsoft's Database system
|The rest of MS Office
|Word, Excel, Powerpoint
|Functional programming language - think about programming on an entirely different level.
|Novell Netware 3.11/3.12
|Network Server System
|Debian Linux (including Samba) - as in setting up
|Doing things like installing network cards, compiling the kernel, partitioning disks, building packages from source, running web and mailservers.
|Unix - general use
|Shell Commands etc
|Amateur Radio/Radio Communication in general
|Programming little Microcontrollers, single chip computers
|Setting up Office networks.
|Fileservers, printservers, internet access, email access, user profiles etc
|Open source relational database system.
|Cat 5 cabling/ethernet
|Installing patch panels, network cabling, crimping on RJ45 connectors, ethernet topology etc.
|You may think of postscript as just a thing to send to the printer. It is actually a fully featured stack based programming language.
|Is a great way to make nicely printed documents without spending weeks on the formatting. Good for technical reports.
|Session Initiation protocol. Clever things for setting up Voice over IP connections. For establishing sessions between users (in multiple locations) rather than between computers.
