Now the time for the community to get into the Google Summer of Code. Following on the success of more than a decade of involvement in Google’s Summer of Code initiative, OpenMRS once again planed to apply as a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code™ 2019 , and we are looking forward to identifying potential project ideas and mentors for GSoC 2019 as part of the organization application process. The organization application is due on the 06th Feb , so we would like to get as many projects fleshed out by then. If you have any ideas for projects , and/or would like to volunteer as a mentor , this is the time and place to get those discussions going.
06 February: Organization Application Deadline
25 March - 06 April: Student Application Period
27 May - 26 August: Coding
24 -28 June: Mentors and students submit Phase I evaluations
22- 26 July: Mentors and students submit Phase II evaluations
26 August - 02 September: Mentors final evaluations
For more information on project timelines and expectations for primary and backup mentors , please refer to the OpenMRS GSoC 2019 wiki page . The wiki page will be updated with the list of projects and mentors as they are identified.
GSoC projects can be new modules/OpenWeb Apps/projects, involve enhancements/new features for an existing module/OpenWeb App/project, or PoC work for an idea, but should have the following attributes:
Must involve coding(Major part) and be OpenMRS-related ideas
Clear objectives and requirements
A minimal viable product can be completed in 6-8 weeks (allowing time for bug fixing, documentation, and getting to production).
Meaningful contributions to the community
Involvement of at least one motivated product owner (e.g., implementation) eager to use the project’s output
Should have some features which may give a chance for design, coding, testing, and documentation as well as analytical thinking and creativity for students.
Available mentors (If don’t have, we can get it later)
New Project Ideas
If you have any new ideas which are supposed to be initiated through GSoC 2019, please go ahead and arrange a Design forum for it (You can contact any of us, and invite our community also) - Better to prepare documentation about your ideas, requirements, and needs before moving to Design forum (Check here).
If there is already a wiki page for your project or very similar project, update that page instead of creating a duplicate. If you need to create a new project page, please choose the “Project Page” template.
Project name*: Foo Bar Project← by convention, end your page title with " Project"
Primary mentor*: Your OpenMRS ID / TBD
Backup mentor*: TBD
Assigned to*: TBD
Abstract*: 4-5 paragraph(s) describing the background, purpose, motivation of the project. Make it exciting! The more interesting your project sounds, the better the applicants you will get.
Sample use cases*: Provide 2 - 5 sample use cases which need to be developed. It should be simple which could able to understand by a person who doesn’t have any experience with OpenMRS.
First Task : If you have any simple task(which can be completed with in 3 - 5 days) related to your project, mentioned that in here. It can be a JIRA issue or any PoC. You can use to evaluate the capability of the student for that project (Optional - But good to have)
Project champions: name one or more product owners (who will use the output?)
Required Skills*: list the skills required to apply (e.g., Java, React, Angular, REST, HTML/CSS, basic SQL, etc.)
Objectives*: A short list of what should be accomplished during the summer
Extra credit: list any nice-to-have features or approaches
Dev Tracks* : Include GitHub URL and JIRA URL of the project
Resources*: include links to any wiki pages, Talk discussions, websites with related/helpful info
Add page label: gsoc2019
Add a link to your project page and proposed mentor below.
We expect each and every mentor to be engaged with students and the community before/during the contest period. So please go through it to get an idea about mentor expectations,
Please let me know if you have any questions and queries regarding this.
I have one idea for GSOC and wants your feedback on this. It would be great if any mentor guide me to proceed ahead.
Idea is to develop a web app to save lives by managing the hospital accomodations for the patient based on their disease. Web app will have options like -
Add user of the site.
Set score against each disease to decide who should be given the accomodation first.
Update pateint info .
Login and singup
There are lots of features that can be added to make it a successful and helpfulf project.
This will solve the real world problem and save the lives.
I have already posted this idea in another thread but there I didn’t got any feedback .so
Plz give some feedback on my idea .
@rupeshiya You don’t need to duplicate the content any where of this talk forum. If you want, just link that post to avoid post duplication. Could you arrange a design forum to discuss this idea and requirements?
I would like to contribute as a mentor or backup mentor for GSoC 2019.
I worked on REST services for Patient flag module. This module doesnot have a UI on ref app and needs some code cleanup and refactoring as well. We can aim to make this fully functional with an OWA, fully RESTified with a well designed UI for GSoC 2019.
The branch that is supposed to be base for next developlements is this.
At the moment we donot have plan documented on wiki. I would do it in a day or so and would share with you. But the plan mostly needs UI development (OWA) and would require good knowledge of Angular or React.
