Is anyone from India (and especially near Bangalore) interested in helping to coordinate some OpenMRS work for the regional Random Hacks of Kindness Bangalore?
From the organizing team:
Random Hacks of Kindness is a global hackathon started in 2009 and is conducted twice an year. The problems worked on in this hackathon are socially inclined. We bring together a group of technology experts from industry and academia and then subject matter experts from development sector (NGOs, etc.) pitch problem statements to them. The techies form groups, pick a problem statement and start hacking over the weekend to come up with a proof of concept of the tech solution. Over the past 5 years, the Bangalore Hackathon has worked with various ideas like water, disaster, environment, and corruption.
