OWNet

Two semesters of team work are a compulsory part of studies at STU FIIT. The objectives of our project were interesting, but we chose a bad way to realize them (in my opinion). That’s why we don’t continue working on the project. But maybe one day we’ll come back to it. Read more if you are interested.

OwNet is a project that aims to help schools and individuals with poor Internet connectivity get better access to the Web. The main part of OwNet is a proxy application that employs caching and prefetching of websites to speed up their load times. The website cache is stored on the users’ computers and is accessible from all computers running OwNet on the local network. OwNet also provides a social portal for students to share links to websites, create groups and chat on the local network. OWNet at Github
