GSOC 2013 Information

Dear Ovidiu Rosu,

Lars forwarded me this email and I’d like to highlight that we are still in the process of finalizing the projects.
But we have some project ideas already on our page -

These projects are new ideas, but use existing frameworks, technologies and APIs

A good way to get started would be to compile the DHIS2 codebase and install it. - Follow the instructions from this page for the same.

Then look through the frameworks like Struts, Hibernate and how they are used in DHIS2. Ask questions where you get stuck and have trouble understanding. In the process we will improve our developer documentation and provide starting steps for DHIS2 development.

These might help you give conceptual understanding about DHIS2 that will be useful for becoming a developer on the platform.

PS: To the dev list, please help bring together other pieces of documentation that might be useful for incoming students

First I would like to introduce myself, my name is Ovidiu Rosu a Computer Science student (2nd year) from Romania looking to participate in the Google Summer of Code 2013 program.

I am writing this e-mail because I’ve read your GSOC 2013 Project ideas / information (concerning the dhis2 project) and it got me really interested. It is the first time I’ve read about your project and to be honest the idea of using software in order to improve the health care system in poorer countries is really noble.

I would like to know how to get involved in the project and try to contribute to it as part of my application. Are the Project ideas already in development or will they be implemented from scratch ?

Where do you recommend me to start in order to get involved in your project ?(since this is the first time I’m getting involved in a project of this magnitude). Can I somehow contribute to it before the GSOC 2013 coding part starts?

I will leave my contact details here:

Thank you for your time.

Best regards.
