OpenVMS Programming

During my tenure supporting Jaguar’s OpenVMS systems, I engaged in multiple projects involving programming in DCL (Digital Command Language), Pascal, C, and PHP.

These projects focused on crucial system maintenance tasks such as backup and restore operations, startup and shutdown procedures, printer and batch queue management, and user administration.

Given the high cost of downtime—valued at £250,000 per hour—it was imperative that all system software was robust, thoroughly tested, and well-documented.

I adhered to rigorous change control procedures to meticulously oversee the implementation of system modifications. As the primary provider of operating system support, I assumed full responsibility for many of these critical projects.
