hacknite @ dgplug from 12am to 4.30am with Kushal Das, Sayan Chowdhury, Gaurav Kumar, Biraj Karmakar, Ashish Mishra, Subhendu Ghosh, Zubin Tewari, Apoorv Ashutosh,Saurabh Mandal, Biswajit Malakar was finally a success!!!
We implemented the basic structure of a remote C compiler. The thought was that systems without a gcc compiler can make a request and remotely compile their C codes via a server. The server would receive the codes to compile in the form of a queue using retask and compile them. I wrote the code that would compile the program on the server side. Although its not fully functional yet, I mean the code is not yet designed to sent the output back to the client who sent the compile request. We look forward to getting on and finishing off the tasks as required.
It was real fun working with the group overnight. The team comprised of all sorts of code geeks, starting from newbies to experts. We all had a hell of an experience, although my first kind, am eagerly waiting for more of this.
This was my piece of code.
