OpenMRS Reference Application 2.9
OpenMRS Platform 2.2
Technical Road Map Process
  • Could use a new process – e.g., adopting the typical "open source" approach of leaning heavily on work that is already being done. Instead of planning out what we think that needs to get done and then trying to figure out how to do it; rather, we look at what is being done or is being finished and make that the road map.
  • The GitLabs approach defines a process for creating/documenting a project and getting into into the "core". More of a bottom up than a top down approach.

  • Scrum of Scrums - Darius and Cynthia talked about what these meetings should be like and when they should take place
  • Last couple weeks of todos
