OpenEMR is the creation of a hodgepodge of both paid and volunteer developers.

For Professional Developers, go to:
OpenEMR Professional Support

Volunteers have been working on OpenEMR for a number of reasons. Some work on it as a hobby, others as a student project for school, others as a way to gain experience with PHP programming, and others as a gateway for future employment as a programmer/freelancer.

The following is a listing of programmers working on OpenEMR that are not necessarily working for a company in the OpenEMR Support page.
