Save the Date! 2024 OpenMRS Implementers' Conference - Nairobi, Kenya 🇰🇪

Hi everyone,

I’m excited to announce the dates for the upcoming 2024 OpenMRS Implementers’ Conference!

Mark your calendars: The conference will be held from September 9th to 13th, 2024, in Nairobi, Kenya .

This is a great opportunity to connect with fellow OpenMRS implementers, share best practices, and learn about the latest developments in the platform.

We’ll be sharing more details about the conference program, registration, and venue in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!

In the meantime, spread the word and save the date!

@burke can you make this the banner on OpenMRS Talk for now?


For example/reference, I’m imagining something similar to this other global goods’ one.

I was going to use this Discourse plugin but realized I’m not cozy enough with CSS to be trusted :stuck_out_tongue:

I added the banner to Talk. It’s linked to om.rs/24, which – for the moment – just redirects to this thread. I’m assuming we will soon have an official home page for the conference. Up through OMRS20, these were always wiki pages under this wiki page. Somewhere over the last few years, it’s been less predictable (e.g., om.rs/16 and om.rs/19 still work, but om.rs/21 and om.rs/22 go to a registration page and a broken page outside of the wiki).

The nice thing about using a wiki page as a home page for the conference is that it can evolve over time from announcement, to registration, to schedule, to permanent documentation of the event. It can, of course, always send people elsewhere for registration, sched.com or other live conference scheduling, etc.

Very good points Burke. I’ve kicked off a new wiki page for ORMS24 here:

https://om.rs/24

FYI @christine @erica and anyone else involved in conference organizing: You’re more than welcome to change this wiki page, I just copied a template from the last conference in Kenya and added the info from this one :slight_smile:

FYI @burke seems like the banner image became broken since we updated it on Friday.

Adding the JPEG version of the banner here to use on Talk…
