Hi,

I am Mohit Kumar, currently I live in Bengaluru, India. I am really excited on being selected as a technical writer in GSoD I recently joined Amazon and I work as a Software Development Engineer there.

I am a graduate with a Bachelor’s in Technology degree in Computer Engineering from Delhi Technological University, Delhi, India. I was born and raised in Delhi.

I’ll be working on restructuring the REST API documentation for the better understanding of the developers and users who visit and develop software in OpenMRS.

The IRC nickname is batbrain7.

Apart from coding and developing stuff I love playing and watching football.

The fact that interests me about OpenMRS is that the technology that we work on actually helps people and changes them only for the better.

I use Android studio a lot and apart from it, VS code is a good editor, push bullet is a really handy chrome extension to share links while browsing on the web.

Yes, definitely I would love to contribute to OpenMRS even after GSoD.

From the GSoD page, when I started looking for the organizations to choose from.
