Hey my fellow OpenEMR Developers!
Edited October 23rd 2021 To Update Dates to Match November Saturdays, not October Saturdays
We are looking to start an OpenEMR meetup each month where developers from the OpenEMR community can come and learn from each other on cool, new, or not commonly known areas of the OpenEMR system. This will be a chance to come and learn, network, and enjoy the time with other OpenEMR developers.
For our first meetup I will be presenting on the OpenEMR module system. I will walk through the steps of creating a custom module, how OpenEMR runs modules in the module life cycle, several key events you can hook into in order to write custom modules for OpenEMR. As time permits I will also walk through an example of creating a Laminas module (formerly known as a Zend module) inside of OpenEMR. I helped bring the Zend Module system into the modern world and integrate it into the OpenEMR page lifecycle as well as creating the current OpenEMR mechanisms for creating custom do whatever you want modules. I’m excited to share this information with all of you and answer any questions you may have about creating modules in OpenEMR.
Also, if anyone is interested in presenting a 2 1/2 - 5 minute lightening talk on an OpenEMR subject please let me know as we’d like to provide that opportunity to two speakers each time we meet and we have those slots open for November
In terms of when we will have the meetup we would like to try having the monthly meetup on our Saturday Developers call. What I’m interested in finding out from the community is whether there is any preference for the 13th or the 20th in November?
Going forward we will probably shoot for these meetups on the 2nd Saturday of each month (So December 11th 2021, January 15th 2021, etc) unless we find that Saturdays just are not the best day for this.
Just let me know if any of you are interested in coming and participating as well as any topics you would like to learn about.
