    New Job

    Well, I just thought I would rub it in for anyone out there who is unemployed. Nya nya na na na!

    I start Monday and I am psyched. It'll be Ada though. This means I really am going to give C++ a rest for a while. So in large part I won't be here anymore. The job is at Raytheon doing primarilly simulator work. It should be great. Ada95 is actually a pretty modern language with inheritance, polymorphism etc..

    With that having been said I should mention that if any of you live in Central Florida and are good Win32 API programmers my old job may be yours! Take a look at www.kamelsoftware.com if you are looking for work. No promises of course. The job is a good deal of 3d graphics work with a lot of windows custom control development. Bug fixes galore.

    If I tried to answer that question, all the space on cprogramming.com would be drained up

    update:

    I have a Sun Solaris Unix box and an XP machine. Most of the work will be on the Solaris. Ada compiler is Apex? or something. I'm not 100% clear on that yet because the first two days were really just paperwork and orientation. It looks cool though. Solaris is a big-endian machine from what I understand so it'll be interesting doing any cross platform stuff there.

    oh, and I get a take home solaris machine too.

    The project itself deals with military simulation. Actual live combat training out in the desert is monitored by an elaborate system where tanks, copters, drones all have transmitters hooked up to a monitoring system. The major software piece is a graphical representation and logging system for the higher-ups to see how the trainees are doing. I love what I've seen so far.

    Definately cool stuff. I have zero ada experience beyond the basic tutorial type stuff, but for my senior thesis I messed around with the DOD's High Level Architecture or HLA. We used it in a distributed data mining environment, but it was orginally designed as a component framework for military simulations. Of course it has language bindings for Ada so let me know if you run across it.

    good luck.
    THIS IS NOT JUST A CHRONICLING OF THINGS WE HAVE DONE IN THE PAST BUT OUR RISE TO POWER.
