Software Developer, Axians Healthcare

Patrick Tingen
Patrick is working as a Progress developer for Axians in Groningen, the Netherlands. He has been working with Progress since 1993 when he worked on a character based application in v6 in a Novell Netware environment. He likes building tools, programming games in the 4GL, clean code and good user interfaces. But - most of all - solving complex problems. Patrick has been working for several clients in the Netherlands, ranging from a publisher to a debt collection agency and from a tobacco producer to a retail wholesale. Currently, he is working on the ERP system of a pallet factory. His pet project is the DataDigger, an open source data browsing utility. He tries to make this tool as slick and user friendly as possible, using only plain Progress. The DataDigger is used daily by over 200 people and is approaching its 10th anniversary. patrick@tingen.net
