OpenMRS GSoC Showcase: Get Ready to Shine! 🌟

Hello, GSoC 2023 Students!

As the GSoC program comes to a close, it’s time to celebrate your incredible achievements and showcase the outstanding work you’ve accomplished over the past few months. We’re excited to invite you to participate in our GSoC Showcase, where you’ll have the opportunity to present your projects to the entire OpenMRS community, including implementors from around the world.

Date & Time: 2023-09-19T14:30:00Z


This showcase is your moment to shine! It’s a chance to share your journey, insights, and the fantastic work you’ve done during GSoC. You’ll have a maximum of 5 minutes to present your project. You should record your presentation in advance. Your recorded presentation will be played during the event, ensuring that everything runs smoothly.

How to Prepare:

Here are some tips to ensure your recorded lightning talk video is top-notch:

  1. Content is Key: Clearly explain the problem you aimed to solve. Emphasize why this problem is crucial for the OpenMRS community. Describe how your project addresses this problem and the specific benefits it brings.
  2. Keep it Concise: You have just 5 minutes, so focus on the most important points. Avoid getting too technical; make it accessible to a broad audience.
  3. Visuals: Use slides or screen sharing to illustrate your points. Visual aids can help the audience understand your project better.
  4. Practice: Practice your presentation a few times to ensure your message is clear and within the time limit.

Submission Deadline:

To ensure everything runs smoothly during the event, please submit your recorded presentation by Saturday. You can upload your video to a platform like YouTube or Google Drive and share the link with us. This will allow us to review and organize the presentations effectively.

We’re looking forward to seeing all the amazing work you’ve done during GSoC 2023. This showcase is not only an opportunity to demonstrate your skills but also a chance to inspire others and strengthen our OpenMRS community.

Stay tuned for more details about the event, including how to join and participate. If you have any questions or need assistance with your presentation, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

Let’s make this GSoC Showcase an unforgettable experience! :raised_hands:
