Google Summer of Code 2023 is here. Applications for interested open source organizations opened on January 23, 2023, and contributor applications open on March 20, 2023. GSoC 2023 is expected to run between May 4, 2023 - November 13, 2023.
Contributors need to wait until officially OpenMRS is accepted as a mentoring organization for GSoC 2023. After that only, we will release a list of projects which will be carried on for GSoC 2023 with our community mentors.
In the meantime, what can you do to get ready for GSoC 2023?
Introduce yourself on the community introduction page on OpenMRS Talk.
Have a question? Ask others in the community. If you ask questions the smart way, you’ll get better responses.
Be active on the OpenMRS Talk forum, and help others to solve their issues regarding developments, testings, and deployments.
Go through the past projects to get ideas about the kinds of projects we’ve supported in the past.
As per the program timeline, we are currently waiting Feb 22rd for the list of accepted mentoring organizations to be published and once the organisation is confirmed then the next step will be potential GSoC contributors discussing application ideas with the community.
So in the meantime, you can utilize this resource. Btw have you had a chance to take a look at?
The next step would be understanding the project requirements through reading it’s description and getting to know the skills required.
To participate in the project discussions, you can post your project ideas on the OpenMRS talk forum or engage with the community on other communication channels, such as the OpenMRS Slack workspace. You can also attend community meetings and events to learn more about the project and connect with potential mentors.
Hi, please i have an issue loging into the jira issue dasbard System Dashboard - OpenMRS Issues with my openMRS username and password. I do not know why. When ever I try, they keep telling me incorrect username or password I have done several password reset yet i can’t still login. I will apperciate if someone can clearify me why it happens like this. thanks
