Hi GSoC students, thanks to everyone for introducing themselves on Talk and helping the OpenMRS community to get to know you all a bit better. It’s been great to learn more about where you’re from and your interests in and outside of OpenMRS.
At this point you’ve hopefully had contact with your project mentors, and started to discuss your projects or doing some initial planning and design work in preparation for the coding period that kicks off on the 14th May.
As you may already know, GSoC students will be required to post (at least) one blog entry a week during the course of the GSoC program. In preparation for this, we’re asking all students to take the time during the community bonding period to make sure you have a blog set up, and add a post over the course of the next week to introduce what you’ve been busy with during the community bonding period.
Once this is ready, please reply to this thread with the following:
- A link to your blog post. Please tag all your GSoC posts with the tags
- Please also let us know how you found out about GSoC, we’re interested to hear if this happens through word of mouth, from websites/forums/chat, or other campaigns/presentations at universities and colleges.
Take note: If you already have an existing blog, feel free to use that, otherwise you’ll need to set up a new blog for this. You’re welcome to use a traditional blog service (such as wordpress, blogger, medium etc.) or host your own. Just make sure it has an RSS feed available, as we’ll be linking to these blogs on the OpenMRS blog aggregator planet.openmrs.org.
And why not find some inspiration by having a browse through some of the GSoC 2017 student blogs.
If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to reach out to myself and/or your project mentors. And make sure to check in on the #community:gsoc category here on Talk to keep up to date on all things GSoC.
