Through Google Season of Docs, we’ve been lucky enough to have @marslan8530’s help organizing our Wiki. Turning our attention to the website, our goal is to have a new, branded website that tells our amazing story and clearly relays our mission with a more appropriate information pathway for our target audiences.
In September, we reached out to external website designers and developers. We’ve reviewed various proposals and had multiple discussions during Operations meetings and the #website-rebuild Slack channel about what it will take to re-vitalize the OpenMRS website. This has led to greater insight into what it will take to achieve our goal and it’s clear that it will mean going beyond the technical work of re-building our website. It’s also about creating visual and written content that speaks to a variety of target audiences.
Anyone interested in working with external website designers/developers over the next couple of months and driving this work forward is welcome to join our new Website Squad. Please follow this thread, join the #website-rebuild Slack channel, and fill in the Doodle poll below so that we can set up an initial, weekly meeting and discuss scope, roles, engaging external website specialists, and how we’ll work together.
