Vinod Kurup

Developer

Vinod has taken a long journey to find his dream job at Caktus. He fell in love with computers and programming in the days of the Apple II, but decided to pursue a medical career first. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School and did his internal medicine residency at New England Medical Center. Shortly after residency, he was introduced to web applications and he dove in head first, learning from and later contributing to the OpenACS community. He has since worked with many frameworks and languages and continues to spend his spare time absorbing as much computer science knowledge as he can. In 2013, he decided to switch his focus from medicine to programming and is honored to work with the talented and friendly team at Caktus. He continues to work in the medical setting and someday hopes to combine all his skills to improve the health of people around the world.
