The documentation team is a group of individuals passionate about accurately and efficiently representing ideas and solutions in written format for consumption by anyone within or outside the OpenMRS community. Our purpose is to ensure all OpenMRS products (Wiki, Website, GitBook) are well-documented with concise, updated information by sharing and implementing the best documentation practices.
As a community-driven organization, it is essential that new and current members can access information on what each squad and team is working on. This led to the need to create wiki project pages that give an overview of ongoing projects.
Our overall goal is to ensure that all community members are informed, up-to-date and aligned with the community happenings.
Getting started guides help new members understand how the community works, navigate through the extensive documentation, and identify their areas of expertise so they can contribute.
The Documentation Team is always welcoming new members in our efforts. Technical writers and communicators who can express complex information in a simple and understandable manner are especially encouraged to join.
Interested individuals can attend our weekly meetings (excluding holidays) via UberConference on Thursdays at 10:30 pm IST | 8 pm Nairobi | 7 pm Cape Town | 5 pm UTC | 1 pm Boston | 10 am Seattle. New members can introduce themselves by stating their name, occupation, and how they would like to contribute improving OpenMRS' documentation.
