Greg Shah

CEO and Founder, Golden Code Development

Greg Shah
Focused exclusively on the design and development of the open source FWD technology, for the last 13 years Greg has led the team and has designed and written much of the system as it exists today.

The primary mission is to help clients analyze, refactor, transform, and modernize Progress ABL applications. The FWD project enables this through a fully automated conversion technology and runtime environment that brings Progress applications and data to a modern technology stack.  Golden Code Development is the only organization ever to deliver a true drop-in replacement for OpenEdge.

Before creating the FWD technology, Greg led the team that ported a complete Sun 1.4.1 JDK (including the Hotspot JVM itself) from Windows to OS/2.  The result supported AWT, Swing, drag and drop, sound, networking, debugging and even a full browser plugin.  It passed all Sun testing to be certified Java Compatible.
