Interested Contributors, Get Ready for GSoC 2022 !

Google Summer of Code 2022 has been announced officially by Google. Applications for interested open source organizations open on February 7, 2022, and contributor applications open on April 4, 2022. GSoC 2022 is expected to run between May 20, 2022 - November 28, 2022.

Contributors need to wait until officially OpenMRS is accepted as a mentoring organization for GSoC 2022. After that only, we will release a list of projects which will be carried on for GSoC 2022 with our community mentors.

In the meantime, what can you do to get ready for GSoC 2022?

  1. If you are new to OpenMRS, spend some time with our OpenMRS demo and how it’s used around the world.

  2. Get to know our community, what we do, and how we do it with our Guide for the New & Curious:

    • Learn about OpenMRS and our community
    • Discover our community conventions
    • Get to know our Squads and Teams
    • Choose your flight path
  3. Introduce yourself on the community introduction page on OpenMRS Talk.

  4. Have a question? Ask others in the community. If you ask questions the smart way, you’ll get better responses.

  5. Be active on the OpenMRS Talk forum, and help others to solve their issues regarding developments, testings, and deployments.

  6. The following programming languages are only some examples for most used programming languages for OpenMRS development with Java, JavaScript, Angular, React, Gulp, Spring, Hibernate, HTML, CSS, JSP, GSP, MySQL, and so many frameworks and libraries. Please go around OpenMRS projects to get more familiar with the languages/frameworks/libraries we use.

  7. Go through the past projects to get ideas about the kinds of projects we’ve supported in the past.

  8. Learn about OpenMRS Pull Request tips, How to Send a Good Pull Request and Coding Standards.

  9. Do some code reviews. Reviewing code from others is one of the great ways to learn the OpenMRS code base.

  10. Achieve /dev/1 status. (earn the /dev/null badge and then earn the Smart Developer badge by passing the quiz).

  11. If you’re returning to do GSoC with OpenMRS for a repeat term, be just as thorough (or more so!) than first-time students. Don’t skip steps and work extra hard to impress your mentor(s).

Be active, ask smart questions, and improve your chances to join OpenMRS for Google Summer of Code 2022!
