We love to share
stories of our students’ successes in their programming adventures. Here’s
Doug is a researcher
with Southwest Airlines, working with customer presence forecasting, optimal gate consolidation, strategic
fuel costing, stowing/seating optimization, optimal gate flight assignment,
aircraft presence forecasting, and fueling optimization.
In three days, our
team was able to help Doug in learning NVIDIA’s Compute Unified Device
Architecture (CUDA) developer framework, building his understanding in high
performance computing and helping him optimize his Linux/Java/GT440 knowledge.
As a result of our customized learning solution, Doug is able to apply this
enhanced proficiency in CUDA frameworks to an app he’s been developing.
With this app, Doug
uses his extensive knowledge of the airline industry to help air travelers
answer the frequently asked question, “How long will it take me to get through
airport security?” The app, Customer Wait Time Forecaster, helps travelers check the service and wait
time for Southwest Airlines and other non-airline processes, such as security.
Currently, the app data covers 8 airports; additional airports will be added.
Doug! We’re happy to be your partner in learning and development.
If your team needs a
partner dedicated to learning solutions planning and implementation, contact
