My name is Adithya Lakshminarayanan, and I'm a first year electrical engineering student at McGill University, in Montreal, Canada. Previously, I lived in a Botswana, a country that has been widely recognised as being one of the worst affected by AIDS. I'm very passionate about bringing about social impact through technology, and therefore greatly appreciate all of your contributions towards making efficient and robust health service systems possible in developing nations such as Botswana!
I too am excited, and would like to join this wonderful community as part of the Google Summer of Code 2017, and perhaps continue working with openMRS after the summer!
I've been programming for the past 8 months, and am currently pursuing a course in Java. I was very happy to note that a lot of the code for openMRS is written in Java, meaning that I can contribute to the community and software.
I'm particularly interested in the Patient Matching Project, the Open Concept Lab enhancements (@paynejd), and the Generic Tagging Mechanism Project ( @wyclif) and am looking for guidance to get started with working for openMRS. As suggested, I'm working on the reading the starters manual, as well as attaining the dev1 title so that I can apply for GsoC and get working!
I'm really looking forward to working with you all, and changing healthcare through collaborative coding! It's just so exciting .
