Google Season of Docs (GSoD)

Welcome to Season of Docs! 

Fostering open source collaboration with technical writers

Since 2007, OpenMRS has enjoyed participating Google programs like Google Summer of Code and Google Code In. When Google introduced Google Season of Docs in 2019, we were excited to participate and became the only organization to work with three technical writers. We find that the projects and mentorship opportunities made available through Google Season of Docs enhances our community's technical writing talent. Documentation is critical for open-source projects like OpenMRS. 

Google Season of Docs is a great way to get to know our documentation, our code and improve your writing skills. At the same tie, your contribution will help benefit people in developing countries who are on the front lines of the battle against HIV/AIDS, TB, Malaria, COVID-19 and other public health challenges. 

With support from Google Season of Docs, we've seen our Wiki become more organized, improved our REST API documentation, created updated documentation on how to get started with our community and different squads or teams, and moved to using FHIR IGs to document testable FHIR resources used in the community.
