GSoC 2021: Student Blogs

Hi GSoC students, thanks all for participating in GSOC 2021, at this point, we have passed more than one week of the community bonding period. 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 *June 7, 2021

Student Blogs

As you may already know, GSoC students will be required to post (at least) one blog entry a week during the period 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 on 7th June 2021. 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:

  1. A link to your blog post. Please tag all your GSoC posts with the tags #openmrs and #gsoc2021 .
  2. If you already wrote a blog about OpenMRS/Related to GSoC/Community Bonding period experience, please mention the blog URL also.
  3. 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 .That link also has different blogs that you can also look at to get a feel of what is needed!


If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to reach out to @jennifer @grace @mozzy @herbert24 and/or your project mentors.

Thanks and Good Luck

Oh, Im sorry for my poor display of attention to detail. Should I remove the post and re-port it after 7th June?

Hey @heshan! It’s great to see your first post up - no need to remove/re-post.
