GCI Follow-up: Blog Posts

Hi everyone!

Congratulations to everybody who went through this GCI period! We’ve just hit an important milestone which means that the contest officially ends in 2 days.

I cannot express how grateful I am for all the support both from mentors and from students and from community members. I decided to write a small blog post while my impressions are still fresh. I used to read a lot of Medium posts before GCI, that’s why it’s kind of my way to give back. Here it is

To every student who is reading this, I encourage you to do this as well. I believe we all have something to say. There are not so many blogs about Google Code-In experience with OpenMRS, and it’s in our hands to fix it, right? :wink:


@lana it has been great having you all in this competition and I must say we have been impressed by your work as mentors. Honestly I didn’t anticipate this anyway, everything has the beginning and an end we wish you the best.


Loved the read! Appreciate all your work @lana Sad to see the competition end, but look forward to the future. :+1:

It’s not the end, just the beginning :wink:


@lana this is a great initiative! I was about to say that am going to miss you a lot and then read this from your blog post: “I’m definitely going to stay in the community after GCI ends:smile:

In a special way, i would like to thank you for your awesome contribution and the patience you have exercised, because i remember you are one of those who had a task that hit the 36hr limit while waiting for review. But in all this, you calmly and patiently waited, while doing other things! :slight_smile:


Thanks for the great post, I really think it sums up our time with OpenMRS well. I hope we will all continue with OpenMRS after the contest ends! Good luck to all.
