OpenMRS Hackathon 1.8

Write Code. Save Lives. From time to time, the OpenMRS development community comes together at the same time on a massive effort to write code and move the project forward. We call these events hackathons, and it's a great way to get work done. We hope you'll join us!

What's Happening?

The focus of OpenMRS 1.8 is doing performance enhancements. This includes a few long-running projects, but mostly it involves tickets that can be designed, implemented, and tested, in less than a day. We want to get as many people as possible working simultaneously, for two days, so we can get 90% of the 1.8 code complete by the end of it.

There will also be work available for those interested in documentation and non-coding. OpenMRS is getting ready to launch a new wiki (which you're looking at right now) and this is the perfect time to clean up information as it's moved over to the new system. If you're interested, contact Michael and add your name in the list below.

Participating Remotely

If you are not able to travel to Indianapolis, Indiana University has secured several channels to participate remotely. Although it will not be feasible to participate in the hands-on practice activities, we will still broadcast as much of the workshop as possible to maximize your learning opportunities.

Audio only (Telephone & Skype)

A US telephone conference number will be provided to listen-in to the event and ask questions. For those in other countries, Michael Downey will arrange a Skype link to the conference  throughout the week. Please contact him on Skype to be connected to the call. Please mute your telephone/microphone/speakerphone unless and until you have a question.

  • Dial +1 812 856 7060
  • Enter the video bridge number followed by the # (pound, hash, octothorpe, square) symbol: 22110 #
H.323 Videoconferencing

Note

Do not join with H.323 unless (a) you know how to mute your system's microphone, and (b) you do so unless and until you have a question. Please do not use Ekiga clients to connect; they are not compatible with Indiana's video bridge server. If you can not meet these requirements, your best option is to use the web stream (see below) and call in to the audio number (see above) if you would like to ask questions.

Video of the presenters, participants, as well as any on-screen demonstrations and presentations will be broadcast over IU's H.323 videoconferencing bridge. Many institutions use H.323-based videoconferencing equipment in meetings rooms, such as Polycom or Tandberg. A list of open-source H.323 endpoint software is also available. See IU's H.323 connecting information for details and the IP address. The event will be broadcast in video bridge 1110 throughout the week. Your H.323 software will allow you to view live video in the conference room, the PC used to display applications, and can also broadcast video from your location. In some cases, audio is not broadcast over the H.323 software and you will need to call in with the telephone number above.

Adobe Connect

The OpenMRS Adobe Connect meeting room will be available during the Hackathon for screen sharing.

IRC Chat Room

We'll also be available in the #OpenMRS IRC channel during the hackathon to talk about what's going on.

  1. FAQ

    I'm a newbie to OpenMRS but not that much of a newbie to Java. How can I help out?

    1. Win, you're hardly a newbie, but it's a good question. We always have introductory tickets ready for work if the issues here seem to require more experience than someone has.

      It's also a good idea to read our getting started resources on the older MediaWiki site, or here on the "to-be" site.

      Anyone who wants to get involved should contact us on the mailing lists, IRC, Twitter, Facebook, etc.
