Hello OpenMRS Community!
We are thrilled to announce that last Friday, we conducted a fantastic orientation session for our Google Summer of Code 2023 students and mentors! Our goal was to welcome the selected students, introduce them to their mentors, and provide them with the necessary guidelines to ensure the success of their projects. And, of course, we had a blast doing it!
The session was filled with smiles, enthusiasm, and a sense of camaraderie as we kickstarted our GSoC 2023 journey. We started with brief introductions, allowing students and mentors to get to know one another. We then moved on to discuss the expectations for the program, important deadlines, and best practices for communication and collaboration.
We believe that this orientation session has laid a strong foundation for the upcoming months. As we embark on this exciting adventure together, we are confident that our talented students and dedicated mentors will make significant contributions to the OpenMRS project, driving our mission forward.
For those who couldn’t attend or would like to revisit the session, we’ve got you covered! Here’s the link to the recording of the session: GSoC Orientation - Indiana University
Now, we would like to hear from all of you who joined the call! Your feedback is invaluable, and it will help us improve our future sessions. Please feel free to share your thoughts, suggestions, and any areas where you think we can do better. We are committed to making the GSoC experience the best it can be for everyone involved.
Once again, congratulations to all the selected students and a huge thank you to our amazing mentors for volunteering their time and expertise. We are truly grateful for your passion and commitment to the OpenMRS community.
Stay tuned for regular updates on our GSoC 2023 projects, and don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or suggestions. Let’s make this summer a memorable and productive one!
Cheers to an incredible GSoC 2023!
