In the mid 1990's I was hired full time at GE Fanuc Automation, a joint venture of General Electric and Fanuc as a software engineer on the embedded systems team working on the 90-70 programmable logic controller.
While at GE I worked primarly in C and Assembly on the next generation of GE's PLC operating system. My work included designing and coding an embedded portable executable DLL loader and upgrading the ethernet controller code.
Along with my embedded work I created a system in AWK to ingest the internal SGML formatted design and development documents and output a linked set of cross referenced web pages. This was my first formal web development experience.
