The Google Code-in 2018 reached the end. There are more than 800+ students worked with OpenMRS this year. Hope everyone gets a lot of experience and knowledge through this year Google Code-in.

Please share your blog post (it may have your experience or summarized works you have done so far) or articles here with other community members. It will increase your potential among the community and lead you to the next position.

Some great points that we expect from your blog posts or articles are (it may contain any from your view: smile:)

  • Summarized work which you have done so far Google Code-in
  • Especially what you have done to OpenMRS apart from GCI
  • Experience through the Google Code-in
  • Message and encouragements to the next year participants.

Please keep in mind that, you shouldn’t express any of your personal information in the shared blog posts or articles :slight_smile:

Kind Regards, Suthagar.

Hey @suthagar23!

Thanks for creating this thread. It will give students a chance to share their experiences with the community.

Working with OpenMRS has been an amazing experience till now. I loved contributing to OpenMRS and looking forward to doing more. I have shared my experience here which also mentions a portfolio of my contributions to OpenMRS.

I have created a repository dedicated to OpenMRS submissions comprising details on my design contributions. You can check it here.

I have learned a lot in this two months. Thank you GCI and OpenMRS for providing me with opportunities.

Thank you! :slight_smile:

I have literally fell in love with the audaciousness of the excellent motive of OpenMRS. I just loved the experience I gathered and gained in these periods of my participation in GCI 2018. Working with open MRS has infact become a life thruster for me, as I learned a lot about Open Source, Got to experience like a professional, Gained experience from existing members and seniors.
