@herbert after the discussion on the work done in GSOD uptill now, it would be really helpful if we can get some responses for the survey here.
@herbert24 Please let us know if it is possible to share the link(s) to the GSOD documentation being talked about (if already published), having a look at it would give us a heads up before the actual meeting. Thank you.
The links for the documentations (draft) for this meeting are here:
Thank you! That’s really helpful!
@herbert24 thanks!! I have got a couple of actionable feedbacks for the survey here,
hope to get more responses for the survey.
I would like to thank everyone involved in this on going effort to improve the tech docs for new developers joining the OpenMRS community. I was part of the meeting on 2020/ 10/ 26 and gathered a lot of useful inputs. I am myself trying to understand the bottle necks for a new dev navigating the current Wiki pages.
As I expressed during the meeting, personally for me there was clarity everywhere and the one place where I got stuck was the http://devmanual.openmrs.org/en/Case_study/yourFirstModule.html page of the Developer manual. On this page I am referring to the Customize Your Module section.
It would be really helpful, if at the end of this section a reference is made to the Source code/ git repo of the customized module being talked about. This would bring in a lot of clarity for new developers trying to understand the OpenMRS platform, as going forward, module customizations would be one of the key areas for new devs to work on.
