Hi all,

Well, its Google Code-in time again, and OpenMRS (of course) plans to apply!

For those of you who aren’t aware - GCI is somewhat akin to GSOC for high school students. Instead of one large project per student, GCI allows students to work on multiple smaller tasks of various complexity. Also, tickets are diverse, and not just limited to coding based tasks.

You may read more about the program and timeline at: https://developers.google.com/open-source/gci/

We participated in GCI over the last two years with great success. We’re confident that this year will be even better, and are anxious to take part!

If you’re willing to participate in this program as a mentor for OpenMRS, and help high school students aged 13-17 complete various tasks using OpenMRS, please respond to this thread, and we’ll get back to you shortly. Please note that in comparison to GSOC, the time / effort requirement for mentors is far less! Remember, GCI tasks are not limited to development work - they can also involve documentation, testing, QA, community outreach etc., so everyone can join in!

For a quick idea on what potential GCI tasks look like, please refer to https://issues.openmrs.org/browse/GCI

@surangak please count me in to help mentor. Seeing articles on GCI like this makes me proud of the OpenMRS Community and inspires me to help! :smiley: I can certainly take a few minutes throughout my days during GCI (28-Nov thru 16-Jan) to help out.

@uzanysa, I happened to see the OpenMRS Google Code-in Video you put up on YouTube and it’s SO AWESOME! Brought a smile to my face :slight_smile: The animation, narration and the way you’ve put it forward is just absolutely amazing, especially for a high school student. Keep it up! :smiley:

Here’s the video, you guys should check it out if you haven’t! It’s the official GCI video for openmrs and is mentioned on the GCI website as well https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPxx1_svu_A
