Welcome! Please introduce yourself

Hello @kimkuere spare some time and go through what is here and There dont be stack.Welcome this family:)

Hi all! Great to be here! Am Philip Aleu from Uganda. A freelancer web developer. I wouldn’t say i am new to the OpenMRS community (just got my OpenMRS id though:grinning:). I’ve been around the community working in the shadows for about 5years now. My keen interest is generally web technologies. I can code (atleast proficiently) in Javascript, JQuery,PHP, AJAX, Erlang and of course HTML5. Am getting deep into JAVA programming and would describe my skill level somewhere between beginner and intermediate level.

Looking forward to enhance my core developer skills, interact with like minded developers and contribute greatly in this community.

Hi everyone, my name is Orjiewuru Kingdom. I am an apprentice from Andela and I’m excited to join you all here. I live in Lagos Nigeria. I have worked in the past with Java and also some Microsoft technologies, but I currently work with the JavaScript stack. At my spare time I learn how to sing :microphone: and dance :dancer: and in the near feature I’d love to learn how to play the guitar :guitar: I joined OpenMRS last two weeks and I’d say it’s been an exiting journey. I am here to put in my best and learn from this experience. :slight_smile:

Hi @niccie :slight_smile: Welcome to OpenMRS community.
You can go through this Getting Started developer guide to get more details.

As far as I know, you are good with JavaScript and React components, So better concentrate on OpenMRS OWAs. It mostly depends on web technologies. To understand more, you can view sysAdmin OWAl code here.

Hi @suthagar23

That is a good call. I will definitely check them out to get prepared for the tasks to follow.

Thanks a lot!

Hi @chibujax2

Welcome to OpenMRS Community :slight_smile: You can go through this Getting Started developer guide to get more details. OpenMRS plays with Open Web Apps using web technologies. What about your depth about JavaScript? If you have good, then move with Open Web Apps.

Hi @brensurio Welcome to OpenMRS Community :slight_smile: You can go through this Getting Started developer guide to get more details.

I think, you are good with Java and Android programming. So better move with OpenMRS Android Client project. If you have interest then move this documentation.
