Assalamu alaekum @maimoonak @omarahmed1 @tahira @rabbia.hassan @nvd @ahmed14, I believe some of you are already working on some module development. Wondering if you guys would be interested in mentoring in OpenMRS.


I’ll be a bit busy this Summer, but I’m willing to be a backup mentor for the Android Project. @shivtej @defcon any of you being primary mentor this year?

No problem, I’ll be the primary mentor this year.
