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.

The team is looking for ideas from OpenMRS. If you are interested in helping develop some ideas, and to participate in the event, please respond to this topic! (Or share your questions or comments here, too!)
Do you the initial volunteers have any interesting ideas for this group to hack on? Please respond to this topic and let us know. We’d also like you to work together to contact key people in the community to gather their feedback, too. @vaibhavhp, would you be willing to help coordinate the others in working with the community to gather ideas for potential hackathon topics?
Please let us know what your requirements / needs are. We’ll be working on trying to understand how RHoK can be of assistance to us, and would be happy to help you get some great work done
