Gene Ressler is the software guy for the Bridge Design Contest. That's full stack designer and developer plus system operating engineer. He has a couple of other, more limited open source offerings: Sketch, a processor for a small 3d modeling language that emits LaTeX for simple but beautiful diagrams and figures. Steve Ressler is a civil engineer with specialized expertise in structural analysis and design. Back in 1995, while serving as a CE faculty member at West Point, Steve developed the original concept for the Bridge Designer software and wrote the original source code for this stand-alone Windows application.
