OpenMRS 10th year anniversary video project


2014 which has just passed marking the 10th year anniversary of OpenMRS. In celebration of this, a Google Code-In Task was made to create a promotional video depicting OpenMRS’s journey over the last 10 years, and their achievements.

Google Code-In(GCI) is a competition for teenagers(13-17) to participate and contribute to Open Source Software such as OpenMRS with the main goal for students to integrate themselves in the community. We are given tasks to complete and for this task I would like to reach out to the OpenMRS community and ask for a simple favour.

If you are graciously willing to video yourself or anyone of your Project/Company/Clinic/University/etc and send me the video clip covering one or more of the topics below, that would be great :relaxed:

  1. How long has your Project/Company/Clinic/University/etc been using OpenMRS?
  2. Why did you pick Open MRS?
  3. What do you hope OpenMRS will achieve in the next 10 years?
  4. Saying two words with a big smile : “10 years :smile: ” in your native language!
  5. Anything else relevant

An example:

Hi, My name is John Smith from Kenya. I am the community director of Helping Hands Clinic. We have been using OpenMRS for 4 years now. We use OpenMRS because……… My team and I hope that OpenMRS will make a great impact in the world in the years to come. 10 years.


I have received 3 contribution videos so far and hope to receive more soon! :grin: (mentors and fellow GCI participants contributions are most warmly welcomed as well!)

Thanks @uzanysa for leading this up!

As a reminder to everyone, with many browsers, you can simply go to and click on the “Webcam capture record” button to record a video with your webcam if you have one.

We really look forward to seeing the results!

If possible, by 8th/9th of January :blush: thanks for taking interest!
