  1. Boeing Cody Harmon Computer Science 1st Internship

  2. Boeing History • Founded in 1915 with the construction of the twin-float seaplane. • 1939-1945 Boeing produced planes for the war. • 1946 Propellers were replaced with jet engines. • 1946-1956 Started producing Commercial Airplanes. • 1970-1996 Boeing produces airplanes with computer controlled systems, and launches a satellite facility. • 1997-present World headquarters is placed in Chicago. The first 787 Dreamliner is completed in 2007.

  3. Working Hours • Flexible schedule • Arrived at 6am – 7am and worked until 2:30pm – 3:30pm • 8 hour days Monday through Friday • 40 Hours a week with the possibility of approved overtime • Ability to flex schedule and shift hours over to other days. Ex. Work 7 hours on Monday and 9 on Tuesday

  4. Wages & Benefits • Salaried employee • Wage 17.836538 dollars an hour • Overtime $17.836538 + $6.50 an hour ($24.336538) • Vacation accrual rate of 1.534253 hours per week • Sick days accrue at the rate of 1 day per month • Health and Dental insurance provided by Boeing with no cost to employee • Unused vacation at end of internship is cashed out at your hourly pay rate

  5. Projects • Responsible for minor quick change requests • ROI Me: Moderate ROI Boeing: Moderate • 1st project – Redesign Internal Boeing Portland Phone List Website • Converted classic ASP to ASP.NET v2.0 • Converted Visual Basic to C# • Applied the Boeing master page to website • Redesigned the user interface of the website • ROI ME: High ROI Boeing: High

  6. Projects • 2nd project – My largest project • Convert classic ASP and Visual Basic websites to ASP.NET v2.0 and C# • After the conversion process was complete the Boeing master page was applied • All changes were tracked in Rational ClearQuest • Source control was Microsoft’s Visual Source Safe • ROI Me: High ROI Boeing: High

  7. Before Conversion Process

  8. After Conversion Process

  9. Projects • 3rd project – Create Cascading Style Sheet for the Portland master page • Existing master page CSS wasn’t compatible with IE7 • CSS had to make the master page look exactly like it did in Firefox 2 & 3 • ROI Me: High ROI Boeing: Very High

  10. Projects • 4th project – Redesign Instant Award Vouchers website • Customer requested changes to a large website application • I was in charge of heading up the changes • The website went through an upgrade from ASP.NET v1.1 to ASP.NET v2.0 and the Boeing master page was applied • User interface was modified to requested specifications • Code behind was converted from Visual Basic to C# and some functions were modified to accommodate the user interface changes • ROI Me: High ROI Boeing: Very High

  11. Organizational Structure • Projects were monitored by my mentor Kevin Durr • All projects went through a process cycle defined in Rational ClearQuest • Wrong entries in ClearQuest resulted in automated emails sent to Kevin • Projects were always placed in source control (VSS) • Typical software process • Submitted, Analyze, Approve, In Work, Functional Test, Customer Test, Verify, Completed

  12. Department Interaction • Working with different departments within Boeing was common • The Portland IT Group creates and supports website applications for “customers” or different departments • For my projects I interacted with the NC Programming group, Dell Support Group, Human Resources Group, and Gearline Business Team • The Portland IT Group has a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee.

  13. Learning • I have learned the importance of having a software development process (Waterfall Model) • Learned ASP, ASP.NET v1.1, ASP.NET v2.0, AJAX, C#, CSS, MS-SQL, and some Visual Basic • Learned that gathering requirements for large projects can be difficult and time consuming • Figured out how to use Visual Studio 2005 and its many features, including how to bind VSS for automated source control

  14. Useful Classes • CS 261 Data Structures • CS 275 Introduction to Databases • CS 311 Operating Systems I • CS 361 Software Engineering I • CS 362 Software Engineering II

  15. Overall Impression • Boeing is a great place for your first internship • I feel that I learned many new and useful skills • The internship helped me progress toward future goals • Boeing has laid out a good structure for interns and Mike Lushenko is able to answer all MECOP related questions
