🌟 #copmonthly May 2023: Honoring Community Members and more DHIS2 Challenges

With great honor, over the past two years the copmonthly has highlighted member’s contributions, top topics of the month, top ten active members in the community, and the monthly map got introduced and recently the DHIS2 Challenges activity too! It is great to start the month by taking a moment to thank community members including core team software experts, HISP members, and everyone who has been helping this community be vibrant, informative, and supportive. Last month, members have been very busy supporting each other and sharing about their challenges. Your presence in the community is much appreciated. :raised_hands:

Top Topics in the Community for May 2023

Interesting enough, last month’s top topic was from the French community. This month’s top topic is from the المجتمع العربي - Arabic Community. The topic discussion is from Egypt by a member asking about installing Metadata packages such as Nutrition. شكرا جزيلاُ لكل من ساهم في مساعدة أعضاء المجتمع، وأهلا وسهلا بكم جميعاً :bouquet:

Another top topic of the month is a user story from Rwanda in the interoperability category. It is always great to hear about user stories from the community and this one has received many views and a number of special likes. A big thank you goes out to Rwanda for sharing their success, challenges,and lessons learned.

And for the moment that we all have been waiting for is the DHI2 version 40 release, so the announcement topic and the release notes were definitely top topics of the month.

Finally, with a positive note and great news to the developers and copmonthly fans, both last month’s copmonthly post and the announcement for May Developer Meetup received special attention and participation. A special thank you to HISP Mozambique (@EdsonNhancale) for presenting their Skeleton App.

Additionally, thank you to all those who participated in last month’s DHIS2 Challenge. :star2::star2::star2::star2::star2:
