Hi @akhil.12345 , @adad20 , @prondubuisi , @NullByte !

The OpenEMR community is super excited to participate in the GSoC and welcome to the OpenEMR project!

If you are interested in an idea on the list, then recommend starting a discussion on the related forum thread. If you are interested in a custom project, then recommend creating a forum thread for it (for example, “GSoC Project: Android app” (or something like that).

A common ground of most (except for the MAR project) of the interest so far is OpenEMR’s API, so I’d recommend setting up a local OpenEMR development/testing environment and playing around with the API a bit (openemr/API_README.md at master · openemr/openemr · GitHub). If trying to work out a local OpenEMR development/testing environment, some developers use the following environment:
openemr/CONTRIBUTING.md at master · openemr/openemr · GitHub

Would also suggest participating on OpenEMR’s github repo and working on a simple mini-project (such as a simple bug fix or simple feature) to interact with the OpenEMR developers and learn how PR’s and code reviews work. Please don’t worry about how nicely your code looks or if it works or anything like that; the community values passion more than skills since we are confident your skills will improve.

thanks!

I have helped a friend customize OpenEMR for Netherlands and the netherlands dentistry billing system. I’m not 100% on which project I want to work on. The pdf project sounds fun.
