Damon Ruhl
Integration Services Programmer/Analyst

Damon started with the love of technology at an early age. His inquisitive nature lead to many of his toys being taken apart to see how they work. This lead to many broken toys plus new ones being created out of the remnants of the old ones. He loved making infinite loops and watching his Commodore 64 spiral into death throes.  This lead to getting into the guts of games that came with the computer. He found that a simple tweak here and there would create huge advantage for him, adding $1 million to Poker Sam made the game so much easier. Later in life he found that the self-taught skills in the "tech industry" led him to an internship at SCO in Santa Cruz, after which he found full-time employment at Sutter Santa Cruz doing desktop, server, wireless and wired networks, and eventually moved to the Sutter applications group.  Another five years later, Damon joined the UCSF IDX team.  He was soon shanghaied into the Epic interface implementation team, where he eventually acceptedposition with the new Integration Services Team.
