Internships: Andela

Daniel Kayiwa
  • List of Andela Projects
  • Angela's asks; 1. Daniel alone can't provide responsive enough mentorship (need to clone him ), 2. They want better visibility of upcoming next work, for planning purposes
  • Spoke about this on the last leadership call
  • More mentorship
    • Wyclif to carve out some time to get up to date on what is happening with Andela work
    • Try to get community /dev/4 & /dev/5s involved in Andela mentoring, positioning Daniel more to provide oversight than doing it all himself (e.g. fellowships program for developers)
    • Add OpenMRS developers in implementations? (e.g. Like Angela devs in Nigeria to tackle implementer specific issues)

OpenMRS Reference Application 2.8
OpenMRS Platform 2.2
  • The progress is good currently, I’m sure we shall hit the release date as expected. Keeping track of the tickets bundled in the release.
    • Currently have no blockers.
    • As to platform 2.2, the community isn’t not actively involved. I made a post to the community for members to give ideas on making platform 2.2 better. No one responded. But apart from that, the community is working on the prioritized tickets of platform 2.2 which is the most important point 
    • Apart from coming up with new features and pointing out more bugs, The community can do better by the devs with required privileges to review , merge and close the tickets that are related to platform 2.2. This because a few tickets are closed and most of them are in status “Code Review”.
