8-11 October 2013
The annual Implementers Meeting began in 2006 as a way to bring members of the community together during a dedicated amount of time to collaborate, share implementation experiences, and find ways to improve OpenMRS.
Who should attend
- People new to OpenMRS who want to connect to others using the platform around the world
- Experienced OpenMRS implementers who want to share their experiences and learn from others
- OpenMRS platform developers – anyone building systems to integrate with or extend OpenMRS
- Developers of related health and healthcare application software
Why you should attend
This meeting provides an opportunity for developers to collaborate and improve their technical skills in OpenMRS, implementers to share their best practices from implementations, and users to propose and prioritize their top features in future releases of the software. As we introduced last year, the 2013 Implementers Meeting may also include visits to OpenMRS implementation sites along with a discussion afterward for participants to share their experience and suggestions.
Propose session ideas
It’s an unconference, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start thinking about ideas today. Do you want to lead a session? Do you have an idea for what you’d like to see, even if you can’t lead the session?
Our annual pre-conference hackathon for current and new OpenMRS contributors will once again take place the 2 days before the event, 6-7 October 2013, also at the Noble Conference Center in Eldoret. The hackathon is free to attend. More information about the hackathon will be posted here.
Like most unconferences, specific schedule details and session titles will not be confirmed until the event begins. However, you may bookmark the following site for the most up-to-date schedule as it develops:
- “Early Bird” registration before 1 August: USD $300
- Regular registration (1 August – 15 September): USD $350
