Welcome to the OpenMRS Hackathon Germany!
Join us in supporting the OpenMRS mission in a one day hackathon with the main focus on paying back technical debt that has accumulated over time.
Everyone is more than welcome to join us for the hackathon! You do not need to be a domain expert in healthcare. However since we want to solve code related OpenMRS issues you need to be familiar with the technologies OpenMRS is built on. We expect you to have experience with Java and tools/frameworks such as maven, JUnit, Spring, Hibernate, Mysql.
