Hello everybody. My name is Michal Fotyga and I’m a software engineer from Poland. Few days ago I went to a java conference in Krakow (where I’m living right now) called Devoxx and was really inspired by a Wolf Schlegel’s talk about OpenMRS. And so I am here now, hoping to be able to contribute a little bit of my skills to this great project. Professionally, I am a java developer with an experience in a telecom and now finances industries. Time to learn about health now :blush: It is nice to meet you all!


Hi everyone,

I 'm Bambang Lim, just recently join the openMRS and want to know more on how to contribute.

I live in Jakarta, educated in California, and currently looking for jobs as Software Developer / Tech Support or Project Manager.

I have years of experiences as ( most in Banking domain ) J2EE developer, Jasper Report, C# ( for Reporting at IOM ) and recently i was a Technical Project Manager for a local Hospital ( 27 branches ) in Indonesia in charge of the TelerRadiology projects and HIS upgrade.

My last job was as Assistant Manager of Quality Control ( for 3 months only and also for Banking related business ) Since I have not done coding for a year and I want to refresh my knowledge, I want to get the input on which or how to start with openMRS ?

Thanks a lot and Happy 4’th of July

My name is Cha’gara and I been working in IT over 7 years. I worked for around 2 years in Health care systems. I mostly work in linux environments. In the last couple of months I have tried to be more involved in open source projects and be able to provide help. I’m not much of a developer and barely done anything in java before. But, I can learn pretty quick. I must say I love how you guys got your confluence page. Is one of the most organized and awesome looking I ever seen! I came across this project when I was learning about the discourse forum project.


A warm welcome to everyone who has ever introduced themselves on this thread!!! :smile:

Is there any one who wanted to contribute but somehow failed finding how to start, or just got frustrated due to some reason, or anythings else?

Or tried out this form but never got a response? http://openmrs.org/help/

Please use this thread to ask where you can best be used.
