Thank you @suthagar23!

@suthagar23 Are there talk channels for projects? Like, suppose if I face an issue in building the project or need any clarification, where should I talk about it to the project mentors and other contributors?

You can use any of our communication platforms (Talk forum - where you can get input from otheres, IRC chat, and mentors - by any platform which is most suitable for both of you)

Hi! I am Kanika Aggarwal from Computer Science department . Recently I was going through your organization 's idea view list and I am really excited for Nigeria Telemedicine App project . I have very nice ideas regarding the project .

Welcome to the community. Kindly click here to get started.

@suthagar23 due to the poor code review culture that we currently have, am suggesting that just as we require GSoC applicants to have done some tickets, can we also require them to have done some code reviews?

@suthagar23 I am interested to work on the Idea Integrate Bootstrap as Foundation for OpenMRS Reference Application . Can you please help me on how to get started? Which repository is being associated with this Idea ON GitHub?

Yes @dkayiwa, Thanks for the awesome tip :slight_smile: . I also thought to modify the proposal requirements and add some useful works there. Let me consider this when making it available for students.
