I am currently working on producing a prototype of my idea which is called "Catwalk".
A brief introduction:
Catwalk is a computer programming language which massively simplifies the production of computer applications.
It can be used to produce a computer application of any size or type.
It uses a simple, intuitive diagram based method of programming.
The programmer is freed from worrying about the following aspects of programming:
- Accessing and updating data in databases
- Sending data and using applications across networks
- Performance tuning of databases
- Utilizing multiple processors
I don`t have a patent. I have been advised by a patent lawyer that it would be difficult to patent - and the protection offered by such would be limited.
I have approaced large companies such as IBM and Microsoft. I have also tried to get help from government agencies such as PERA (UK) but so far no joy.
Does anyone have any advice as to what to do with it? I don`t think I could start my own company with this idea, I think I need the backing of a large software company but it is difficult to get them interested.
Or maybe I could just make it open source? I like this idea but how would I pay the bills and feed the kids??
Thanks in advance
