Guidance to Contribute to this community for gsoc 2020

Hello everyone, I m Rishav Dhar , a 2nd Year student. I want to contribute to this organisation in gsoc 2020. I went through the projects and liked the Open MRS Android Client Project 2.8+ After going through the github repo I couldn’t find any issues to look over. I am very much interested to contribute to this community in Android. Can anyone tell me how should I proceed?

It all dependents on your proposal and how familiar you are with the project. The timeline for GSoC is determined by Google.


Thank you @jwnasambu .

Hello everyone, I am Aman Mishra , B.Tech 3rd year. I was hoping to contribute to OpenMRS and then participate in GSOC 2020. I was interested in the project Patient Queuing in Reference Application. I have set up the OpenMRS locally on my tomcat server. Can you guide me how should I move further now?
