The Jack Russell Software Innovation Center (JRS IC) was launched to provide technology leadership, creativity and training to Tabula Rasa HealthCare (TRHC) and the healthcare community at large.
JRS IC Areas of Focus
The JRS IC has three areas of focus: labs, programs, and training. In the labs, developers and JRS IC instructors experiment with new concepts and technology to prove potential future directions for healthcare technology.
Programs include hackathons, the first of which took place in July 2016 in Charleston, SC, as well as other internal and external offerings in the planning stage. The Center’s training programs focus on helping current and future developers stay up to date and proficient on the latest technology.
JRS Coding School
JRS Coding School Faculty
Faculty for JRS IC and its Coding School include professional software developers and long-time trainers of software development talent. The faculty are led by Tom Wilson, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Innovation Officer at JRS IC, who started hacking on computers at the age of 9, and whose knowledge, experience, and passion provide a wealth of value for anyone interested in the craft of software development.
Wilson has extensive experience in building and leading teams in the development of large-scale and complex healthcare web applications. He is active within the Charleston software development community, is a member of the Charleston Digital Corridor and heads the Charleston CoderDojo, which teaches code to children. He chairs the Charleston JS Users Group and is an instructor and Lead Advisor at Charleston Code Camp. Wilson believes learning code is a valuable skill, whether one plans to use it professionally or to gain an understanding of the technical world. Recently, Wilson participated at the Syntax Code & Craft Convention, exploring Functional Reactive Programming with Rx.JS/CycleJS.
