|NORTHWEST AIRLINES, INC., Eagan, MN||1993-2002|
Senior Applications Associate (1993 - 1995)
Applications Analyst (1995 - 1998)
Senior Applications Analyst (1998 - 2001)
Applications Developer (2001 - 2002)
Most of my eight years at Northwest Airlines (as well as two additional years as a Unisys contractor at NWA - see below) were spent doing development and support work either on or directly related to the WorldFlight system, the central "core" mainframe computer system residing in the heart of Flight Operations/SOC, and used by everyone from pilots and flight dispatchers to meteorologists, load planners, and gate agents at every airport NWA serviced. Most of the application code we supported was Fortran, with a small amount of COBOL and 2200 MAS M (Macro Assembler), and the support software was Fortran, 2200 MASM, C, and various macro languages (SSG, CALL).
The WorldFlight group was a closely-knit 12-person team, with each person focusing and developing expertise in various specific areas of the application. My three areas of expertise were Surface Weather parsing/processing and retrieval, Gross Weights/MGL calculations (optimal flap/thrust calculations), and ACARS (radio terminals on the aircraft) message handling, and I also designed/coded./modified/maintained a number of programmer utilities for the group. The general responsibilities I had as a programmer/analyst and developer included the following:
In additional to the above, I also provided some informal Macintosh and PC support work for the group, I was one of the two people who did support work on the Ops Database (a set of C daemons running on Solaris 2.5/2.6 and using a Sybase 11 database), and I created and maintained the group's web site on the NWA corporate intranet.
