Summer of Code update

  • Each student will present their project status (which may include demos, Q&A, ideas, project plan & timeline). This will happen the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each week, and the dates for each student is listed on the GSoC wiki page.
  • We checked in with each student/mentor on the call to make sure they have defined goals for the mid-term evaluations.
    • Need info from Shaun/James/Suneeth
    • Need info from Katherine/RJ/Pratik
  • For interested students, Justin is working with Malte to create a Training Guide for new OpenMRS/J2EE developers. Feel free to follow along or suggest new exercises.

1.8 release manager

  • Wyclif will be 1.8 release manager

  • Short discussion about GSoC students' experiences, troubles, successes, and problems.
  • We will have a conference Skype call / screencast for an OpenMRS demo and overview for GSoC students, likely the 1st week of June. An e-mail will go out next week with more details.
