I guess all of those teenage years spent gaming with her friends really paid off when it came to her lifetime career
When our daughter told us that she was hired as a computer programmer for a major HVAC manufacturer we were confused. What did computers have to do with making heaters and air conditioners? I know that many of the newer units have internet connectivity but why would they need so many people to work at programming them. I figured that most of the “brains” for the units were manufactured overseas and just plugged into the units. As it turns out the things that she was in charge of programming were the repair devices that are used to diagnose the problems with the units. These units can be plugged into a portal on the HVAC units and they will run a diagnostic test to see where the problem is. This saves time and expense when it comes to having repairs made. There is even a remote program that can access your unit via WiFi and the customers cell phone. Sometimes the things that our daughter is capable of doing when it comes to computers and other devices makes my head spin. I guess all of those teenage years spent gaming with her friends really paid off when it came to her lifetime career. We used to tell her that she needed to be outside playing with her friends or doing something constructive, I can see now that she was. She is able to predict the outcome of a programming issue even before it happens and that type of thinking is crucial to the development of new technology. Now if she would only leave the computer stuff alone long enough to meet that special someone who will fill her life with love!
