David (DGI Systems) said, "My DevShare entry described how to create a BIRT report which displayed data in 'flowing' columns. The data flowed from one column to the next and then from the final column on page x to the first column on page y, for unlimited pages.
"I am porting an eReport with this functionality (using flows) into a BIRT design so had to develop something bespoke."
David is an ex-high school mathematics teacher who moved into IT 7 years ago. He started as an eReports developer and started learning BIRT about 4 years ago. He moved into working with BIRT full time for the past 12 months.
He's currently working on a project to port many advanced eReports into BIRT which is a good challenge.
David chose a $200 Amazon Gift Card for his award.
