Welcome! Please introduce yourself

Hi everyone!

I’m Julius Mkumbo, working with Ifakara Health Institute in Ifakara, Morogoro, Tanzania. I am working as a Database Manager and Data analyst at the Chronic Disease Clinic of Ifakara. We have been using OpenMRS since December 2012, and now we are looking to make our database more efficient by upgrading and customizing it according to our needs. I am in charge of all implementation processes. In the future I am looking to be OpenMRS developer. Looking to contribute a lot on saving life by improving the quality of health care.

Hello @jmkumbo,Welcome. Here is alink which will help you to get started as adeveloper http://om.rs/gettingstarted :smile:thanks for joining the big team of life savers across the World.

Hi All, My name is Gokhan Mandas. Although I have an engineering background, lately I have a growing interest in Software testing/QA and recently I became an ISTQB Certified Tester. I hope this will help me to understand what you testers talk about. Anyway, although I can not call myself a software guru, I had some experience on web site development with some php/mysql experience. I also hope this will help me to communicate with the developers without looking their faces blank. I am happy to contribute the openmrs project as much as I can so any directions/guidance from QA guys are all welcome. Cheers

Welcome @gmandas!

If you’d like to contribute by doing some QA work, there is an active development project going on, called the Cohort Builder, and I bet it would benefit from having someone test out all the various edge cases.

If you’re interested, take a look at posts 1 and 15 in this thread and make a new post asking how to get involved, so we don’t clutter this intro thread.

Hi I’m Benny Linford. I’m a BA looking to see how I can be useful…

thanks @lahiruj. let me go there right away

Hi Good folks, I am Len Smith, MD, MS, a retired Family Physician and Medical Informaticist. I started exploring OpenMRS in late 2015 and implemented the OpenMRS Standalone Ref App 2.3.1 for the ABCsforGlobalHealth mobile van, medical clinic in San Fernando, Pampanga , Philippines in June, 2016.

The ABCforGH is a non-profit founded by Dr. Julieta Gabiola, a Clinical Associate Professor at Stanford University Medical School. We are developing a long term medical record serving, indigenous peoples, indigent patients and their clinicians in the barrios of Pampanga and conduct research in using SMS messaging in chronic medical conditions, prenatal care and malnutrition.

My informatics work has involved MS SQL, but I consider myself an implementer and hope that I can mentor young Filipino developers in OpernMRS. I am sure I will be a frequent reader and submitter of Talk.OpenMRS.org questions. I greatly thank all of you for your sustained contributions and look forward someday to attending an OpenMRS annual gathering and meeting you in person.
