OpenMRS every year organizes conferences for its implementers, members, volunteers and for everybody who wants to join them. Before the epidemic, the conference was held in one of the implementers’ countries like Mozambique, Kenya, Tanzania etc. but when the coronavirus has become a real threat, the conference has moved to the Internet. 2020 was the first year when the conference was virtual, and it actually went really well. Everybody was happy to hear others, but on the other hand, they missed personal contact, eye contact and group dinners.
This year is not different from the previous one. The conference is still held on the Internet and everybody will see each other on their computer.
Hackathon was a tradition of Implementers Conference. Every year it was a 2-3 days event only for developers to code, meet and spend time together. Last year was different because of covid and different structure of the conference. But this year it has come back and organizations are looking for ideas and topics. Under this post, you can read more about it and book your time! For now, people propose a few different topics for Hackathon Learning Labs:
- OHRI program package development
- Frontend Architecture Model: Using Slots & Extension
- Intro to Frontend Architecture
- UX Design
- Get Ready with 3.0 Technologies

OMRS21 Lighting Talks
Lighting Talk is a 5-minute slot for everybody who wants to present something. Implementers can present their clinics and how OpenMRS works there. Others present their work on the code, new distribution or whatever they want to show connected with this open-source. That’s a great time to show something that you are proud of. There are a lot of people who are truly interested in OpenMRS and for sure they’ll give you some support and kind words.
