Welcome! Please introduce yourself

This is excellent @michael, I guess, I am on the right road. I study computers and am a software engineer looking for a collaborative community. I can start just like you did maybe I can be like you. My interest is to help my country, especially healthcare workers, move from paper to electronic—more besides rolling out openMRS in my country. I am interested in the special events program.

Hello everyone! I’m Gilbert Nsanzimana, a full stack developer based in Uganda. I’m thrilled to join OpenMRS community. Over the past four years, I have been immersed in development of various systems, including some in the health sector. Along the way, I also honed my skills in IT Support. The experiences have allowed me to witness firsthand the transformative power of health information technology, and I couldn’t wait but join you here. Ready to learn from everyone in this community and as well make a positive contribution. A little more about me here: https://nsanzimanagilbert.com/

Hello OpenMRS Community,

I trust this message finds you in good health and high spirits. My name is Mayo Brahim, and I am delighted to become a part of this dynamic community. As a Full Stack Web Developer, Linux System Engineer, and fervent advocate for open-source software, I am eager to contribute my skills and experiences to foster OpenMRS’s mission.

I am a proud graduate of Concordia University in Canada, where I acquired a strong foundation in Computer Science, further nourishing my passion for web development and systems engineering. My expertise as a Full Stack Web Developer encompasses a range of skills, including:

  1. Proficiency in front-end technologies such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (including frameworks like React.js, Angular.js, and Vue.js).
  2. Experience in server-side languages such as Python, Java, and Node.js.
  3. Proficiency in database technologies like MySQL, PostgreSQL, and MongoDB.
  4. Solid understanding of web architecture and the ability to maintain a server’s infrastructure.
  5. Knowledge of DevOps practices and tools like Docker, Jenkins, and AWS.
  6. Experience in version control using Git and GitHub.

In my capacity as a Linux System Engineer, I have managed and troubleshooted servers, maintained secure and efficient infrastructures, and developed a deep understanding of various Linux distributions.

Moreover, I have always been passionate about open-source software, advocating its principles and contributing to several such initiatives in the past. OpenMRS’s mission aligns perfectly with my philosophy, and I am thrilled about the prospects of contributing to this project.

I bring to the table not only my technical skills but also a cooperative mindset, efficient communication, and a problem-solving attitude. I am excited to collaborate with the members of this community, sharing knowledge and learning from the vast collective experience present here.

I am confident that my expertise, enthusiasm, and dedication will add significant value to the OpenMRS community. I am ready to dive in and contribute, so please do let me know of any opportunities or challenges that could use my skill set.

Thank you for welcoming me into this community. I look forward to contributing to the continued success and growth of OpenMRS.

Warm regards,

Mayo Brahim

Welcome sir

Thank you brother

Hello, I am Kitamirike Rogers, doing a degree in software engineering at Bugema University. In my skill set, I have Javascript/ Nodejs, MongoDB, Python, Mysql, CSS, HTML, VB.Net. The rest i will be learning as I continue with my course.

In my experience, I have mastered the skill of reading and understand “Error logs” and I think OpenMRS is going to add a new badge for trouble shooter and add levels only for me.

I have befriended code and am flexible to understand code in any high-level programming language.

Hello everyone, my name is Daphine Nalule and based in Uganda. Having done my internship with METS, I became enthusiastic about the different opensource software out there when I interacted with UgandaEMR which is built on top of OpenMRS. I was thrilled with this great experience and thus accelerating the excitement I have to save lives through code.
