Hello friends and OpenMRs family;

Excited to announce the start of my new fellowship journey as a Frontend fellow developer on the 3.x 2023 :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

I would like to announce with much joy that I was given another opportunity to be a Frontend fellow on the 3.x for this year 2023 under the mentorship of @dkigen .

I would like to thank everyone around the community for the support and mentorship you offer in one way or another to always bring out the best version of me. On a special note, I would like to thank the team which was actively involved in the fellowship selection for offering me another opportunity to learn, improve and contribute to the OpenMRS 3.x. @jennifer @dkigen @dkayiwa @erica @jayasanka and others thank you very much :palms_up_together:.

I am officially announcing the start of my fellowship and here are some of the activities I have planned ahead.

  • Kickoff call with my mentor and other stakeholders
  • Scheduling weekly meetings with my mentor.
  • Continuously updating my fellowship plan.
  • Continuously attending the team coffee breaks.
  • Preparing for the GSoC program by taking time to understand the projects I will be overseeing.

Otherwise, I am so excited for this new journey and happy to work alongside the amazing @dkigen as my mentor and all the awesome devs around the community :slightly_smiling_face:

More updates to come:


Congratulations on your fellowship! That’s great news and I’m sure you will make the most of this opportunity. I’m sure you will do a great job with your mentor and the rest of the team. Good luck with your journey and I look forward to hearing more updates from you in the future.

Hello everyone, hope you are all well. It has been a couple of weeks into the fellowship and so far so good :slightly_smiling_face:, it is already an amazing journey.

What I have so far Accomplished

  • I had a kickoff call with my mentor @dkigen and manager @mksrom . It went well, and they shared great ideas and improvements that I could add to my fellowship plan to make it better and more focused. Thanks to both of you.
  • I have made some improvements to my fellowship plan to have more specific goals that can guide me to success.
  • I have scheduled convenient weekly meetings with my mentor where we shall be talking about my progress and any challenges that might come along.
  • I have continued to work with the Frontend Squad team in syncs, reviews, and pairing sessions where we brainstorm about team priorities and unblock each other.
  • As a way to prepare for GSoC, I have had some syncs and conversations with interested GSoC students concerning some projects.
  • I have completed the monthly fellowship survey.

Otherwise, the journey is so far so good and I am excited to continue moving forward with my set goals.

Look out for more in my next blog, thanks everyone for making this journey great, and thanks @erica for the great work and support you are providing :pray:.


Hello everyone, it is mid-March, it’s been over a month since I started my 2023 fellow and so far so good. I have continued to work with the Frontend Team to make OpenMRS 3.x better and prepare for the faimer project. Below are some of the outstanding improvements that I have worked on.

Besides these, I have continued to work closely with my mentor @dkigen , @vasharma05 , the Mekom team, and the entire Frontend squad to make OpenMRS better.

I attended the OpenMRS virtual mini-conference this week and it was a great conference with amazing presentations.

We still have a lot lined up to make OpenMRS 3.x better and more efficient, so the journey continues to be exciting.

We also have GSoC coming up and I am excited to be a mentor for the Printing Feature project, looking forward to that as well.

Cheers, keep viewing!
