Hello Community ,

For the first time in our History , OpenMRS applied to participate in Google Season Of Docs (GSoD)and was accepted as announced some few days back.

Now that we were successful ,we would like to call upon interested Technical Writers to take note of the following


Warm up practices for GSoD 2019

  1. Signup for An OpenMRS ID , if you don’t have one (It’s what you will use to communicate)

  2. If you are new to OpenMRS, spend some time to understand OpenMRS community / Software / practices and its usages around the world , best place to start is our Wiki

  3. Read Through the OpenMRS GSOD Page wiki page and more so Technical Writer’s Guide

  4. If you have any question/s please use our official communication channels namely OpenMRS Talk , Telegram and IRC Channels

  5. Be active on OpenMRS talk forum ,by discussing project ideas with The OpenMRS Community .Ask as many questions as possible,or share articles to do with your Project Ideas
