I am Opetunde and I am interested in joining the Outreachy’s LibreHealth project. Currently I am a machine learning student with interests in health ML projects. I figured out that being a part of the outreacy’s Librehealth project will tighten my documentation (and possibly visualization) skills.

I am happy to be here and I look forward to meeting new people here.

Hey everyone!

I am Smarita Sharma and I am currently doing my undergraduate studies at VIT University.

Why Open-Source and LibreHealth:

I have been contributing to open source since the past few years. I started my journey in with the Wikimedia Foundation and gradually got accustomed to the coding environment of an organisation. Apart from solving some quick bugs, one of my contributions had been added to the official Wikipedia page which is used by millions of people everyday. In the meantime I also learned about Github and the different ways I could contribute to reach out to a much larger community.

I have always wanted my contributions to help in the betterment of the people around me. In such a case what better way to help but contribute to a Github organisation with a similar aim!

About me:

I am 20 years old and I am from India.I love coding and it is what I do most of the time ! :grinning: I have worked on a few projects and have also taken part in few hackathons as well.I have a good grasp over web development and AI.

Some of my projects include:

  • A research portal for my campus where all the teachers and students can submit their research papers.The aim of this project is to promote free flow of knowledge and was developed using PHP, MySql and Materialize Css.

  • Created a Django web app which basically took in a product name and scraped the most recommended product details from E-commerce websites. I used web scraping techniques in python to fetch this info. The project used Django to link between the python backend and the UI.

Looking forward to working with LibreHealth ! :grinning:

(Balaji) #354

Hi Everyone, I am Balaji from India. I am currently in my pre-final year of UG in computer science course. I am working on chatbots for the last 6 months and developed an open-source Facebook Messenger bot for helping hospitals and other healthcare services to notify parents about their kid’s vaccination dates. You can find the codebase at You can find the demo video of the project at I am looking forward to contributing to LibreHealth community during summer break.

(Karina S. Garza) #355

Hello, my name is Karina and I’m currently a second year Computer Science student in Mexico. I have always wanted to contribute to an open source project but I didn’t know where to start and felt like I needed some guidance which led to me finding out about the Outreachy program. I think the documentation project would be really helpful for me because I would learn more about understanding and organizing documentation which are essential (the understanding part at least) when dealing with software projects. I’m looking forward to contributing :slight_smile:

(mua laurent) #356

welcome @karigza thanks for Joining the community

(Art Eaton) #357

Karina! Where are all the Mexicanos??? I think you are the first to show up here! -You have classmates. Drag them over here! :wink:

Welcome aboard! We have some amazing and far-reaching projects here. Excellent choice (in my opinion). Medical applications rank at or above financial and critical utility grid systems. Naturally, documentation is therefore a critical aspect and a very good portfolio item. I can say for certain that the Spanish translations for LibreHealthEHR are in dismal shape. Documentation in Spanish is non-existent. This is a code+documentation project you could request a specification to be written on, and write up a proposal for. Naturally, we expect your proposal to be multi-lingual. :smile:
