It's kind of ironic that after leaving University in a Computer Science program to instead become a professional mariner at a tradeschool I'm finding my first opportunity for real programming work.
Here's the details on the first assignment, I start Monday the 21st.
I'm signed on as an intern. This is a small consulting company that is funded by Government contracts. I'm going to be getting paid $18 an hour.
I'd like to use my hands-on knowledge of operating a large ship to write software training tools to help engineers learn what to expect in terms of the piping layouts of such a vessel. The reason I want this is that I've seen other such simulations and I've always thought that I could do much better (and get paid for it).
