I am currently studying an MSc in 'Software Technology for the Web'. I am trying to decide on a relevant and worthwhile dissertation idea for my course. I was wondering if I might be able to ask anyone here some advice on this. I'd like it to be web development based and tackle an area that needs further research. Ideally I'd like to go into more depth of one or more server side scripting languages, such as PHP, Perl, ASP or JSP, possibly in combination with a complex database. Additionally I would very much like to use XML and XSL. These areas were covered on my course and I would like to become more proficent in at least a few of them for my future career as a web developer. From this broad outline, does any particular project based research come to mind that might be benifical to the web development industry? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
