Hey @wodpachua! It looks like we have the wrong link posted & time here and on our What’s Happening This Week post :frowning: It should be our PDM link.

Please feel free to join Community Office Hours today and Wednesday at 9:00pm IST | 6:30pm Nairobi | 5:30pm Cape Town | 3:30pm UTC | 11:30am Boston | 8:30am Seattle. I am already in the Zoom room!

Huge thanks to @jayasanka @wodpachua @thembo42 and @erica for the fantastic discussion at today’s Professional Development Management call and Community Office Hours!

TL; DR: Supporting professional development is one way that our community attracts, motivates, and retains promising OpenMRS talent, who often go on to work with OpenMRS implementing organizations. Today, we reflected on our various professional development initatives (think: getting started guides, GSoC, hackathons, fellowships, etc) and shared what we each thought the community does well - and where we struggle. Take a peek at our Metro Retro board for details and feel free to share your perspectives as well!
