Hello all,

I am Chanuka Wijayakoon from the University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka. I’m a 3rd year student in Computer Science & Engineering. I’ve made a few patient management systems for medical labs & clinics previously and came across OpenMRS when OpenMRS co-founder Paul Biondich & Suranga Kasthurirathne made a surprise visit to our university in 2016. They gave a wonderful insight into how OpenMRS works and inspired us to get involved.

I would love to join the OpenMRS dev community and make a contribution that will help people around the world.



Hello @tj513,

Please add your GitHub ID to your profile. There’s a field in https://talk.openmrs.org/users/tj513/preferences in your case.

I’m sure you already went through the Getting Started guide at https://wiki.openmrs.org/display/docs/Getting+Started+as+a+Developer.

The project you’ve chosen has a dedicated page at GSOC 2017 FHIR Module Enhancements Project. You can talk with the assigned mentor there.

Hope this helps!

Hello Everyone, I am Mike Huang, a senior student majoring in Basic Medical Science at Peking University Health Science Center in China. I want to join in the GSoC 2017 and contribute to the OpenMRS project.

In my sophomore year, I started to participate in the research led by the Department of Medical Informatics in our school. The project demanded decent data analysis skills, during which I polish my python programming. After that, I joined a team at the Software Engineering Institute, helping to patch their APIserver based on java servlet and JSP, which aims to be a handy visualized tool for android developers. However, I’m still looking forward to contribute to Health IT, since it seems like a perfect field for me provided my interdisciplinary background.

The first thing I assume why I want to join OpenMRS is that I want to fill the gap between developers and health care staff.

The second thing is the limited access to open source EHR system in China due to the overall low involvement to Health IT community in the country. I have noticed the map in your website indicated regions benefited from OpenMRS, which doesn’t involve China.

All in all, I’m so excited to find a community dedicated to Health IT and I’m looking forward to get started here. Any comments and feedback would be gratefully appreciated. __ Best Regards, Mike Huang

Hi! i am Shajal from Bangladesh graduated and currently working on a software firm where I have been given responsibility to add feature to Openmrs.

Hello Everyone,

I am Aleksei Karpov (you can call me Alex) a student of the Faculty of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science at the Belarusian State University (Belarus is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe).

I am new to OpenMRS community, so It’s really nice to join the community.

I am interested in programming as well as applying computational and mathematical methods in medicine to improve healthcare. I’ll be happy to join OpenMRS projects and to contribute my knowledge, my ideas and hands on experience with Java (including Hibernate, Spring frameworks), MySQL relational database and SQL to the project as a volunteer developer. For me this is also a great opportunity to gain experience working in a distributed team on an enterprise-level open source project.

It would be great if I’ll be accepted to participate as a part of GSoC 2017 program.

PS Now I am reading OpenMRS Wiki. I would like to express my gratitude to all authors of the pages for very detailed project description and guides how to get started as a developer. Thank You, OpenMRS Team.

With best regards, Alexei Karpov
