Meeting Minutes

Sending a Delegate to IMeCA 2010 in Nicaragua in December

  • Ben received an e-mail from Joaquin requesting an OpenMRS developer to be present

  • ACTION ITEM: OpenMRS will send a letter of support

HISP India Training Updates (10 min)

  • Darius communicated with Sundeep
  • Proposals:
    • Rather than flying out for the training, create weekly opportunities for development training opportunities
      • Suggestions:
      • Setting aside core developer time for technical assistance items
      • Taking time for "office hours" or "lectures"
        • Set aside time each week where core developers are available
          • People can ask questions: i.e. Can you take a look at the module code? How would you approach this issue? etc.
  • ACTION ITEM: Paul and Darius will follow up again with Sundeep
