My 9-5 Mon-Fri job is for Schneider Electric customizing our ArcFM software for utility companies (gas, water, and electric - mostly electric) to plan and monitor their facilities and equipment out in the field on a map (they are a Microsoft shop so I mostly use C#). The plan is to start getting more heavily invested in our Smart Grid and SCADA / DMS software so power companies can click on a switch on the map and tell it to open or close and it will. http://www.telvent-gis.com/products/arc.shtml I add new buttons and forms and standalone exe's for each customer to better fit their workflows or replace old systems with a new report or form that uses the GIS data in their new system. So after building it and testing it all on our machines they fly me out to their HQ to set it all up and install it all and help them test it on site. I got lucky because Telvent HQ is in Ft. Collins, CO but they let me work from my house.
Let me know through email if I need to be at the shop to help you on your projects when you'll be there. I try to log in to the IRC channel (as ramgarden) every day but email will go to my phone and is the best way to reach me. I look forward to helping out on projects and starting a few of my own.
