Darius Jazayeri wins 2009 Pizzigati Prize for Public Interest Computing

Darius Jazayeri has won the 2009 Pizzigati Prize for Public Interest Computing from the Tides Foundation, partly for his work on OpenMRS. Darius has worked on open source medical records in developing countries with Partners in Health for eight years where he is the lead software designer, and has been one of the lead designers of OpenMRS since 2005. It is great to see one of the OpenMRS team recognized, and the funding will help with OpenMRS meetings and development work.
