Am very excited to join the 2nd OpenMRS cohort fellowship 2021 as a fellow in the area of development focusing on OCL for OpenMRS. I will be working directly with @hadijah315 as my fellow mentor and @ibacher OCL developer Lead in my fellowship journey.

Thank you!


In the past 2 weeks as a fellow, I continued getting more familiar with the OCL for openmrs by participating in the development sprint and currently am striving hard to understand the Subscription Module by fixing the tickets on the openmrs-module-openconceptlab repository.

I also created a testing environment for openmrs-module-openconceptlab and am planning to test all the Subscription Module tickets that I have fixed to ensure the changes works perfectly without causing any test failures. I have been engaged in weekly calls and holding sessions with colleagues and my mentor @hadijah315. This week I will be participating in the creation of new tickets for the next sprint as I continue fixing tickets in the previous sprint.

Thanks to @hadijah315 , @ibacher, and the OCL entire team.


Great work with the subscription module tickets @jwnasambu , we are looking forward to learning about it from you.
