My software

Most software I have written is in MUMPS due to my involvement in VISTA and RPMS. In the same arena, I have written software in C# and Javascript/HTML. Prior to getting involved in medical software, I wrote some stuff in ASP.net. I have some minor contributions in Python and C.

These are some of the big open source projects that I worked on.
