I am a retired air traffic controller, currently working as an ATC instructor in Colorado. While I was a controller, I was selected to do off site work with NASA, MITRE, and several ATC facilities around the US. Current duties include laboratory instruction, academic instruction, and ATC scenario building. I also get under the hood on AIX and Linux, coding mostly simple stuff to automate messages to be fed to the simulator.
Not a professional programmer, just a hack, doing primarily pattern matching and substitution in XML files. Most of it is done with sed and awk, because of client/server differences. No XML tools to speak of. I have some JAVA, C, and C++ experience as well (even studied some JOVIAL), and managed the LAN for the ATC Union while I was a controller.
Oh, and I'm probably the oldest anime fan in Colorado, according to Yasuna Oribe.
I come to this site to ask questions, because people say I need professional help. I wonder how I should take that.
