Hi everyone, I am Rahul and I am delighted to be participating in GSoC with OpenELIS!

I am currently a student at National Institute of Technology Karnataka, studying Computer Science and Chemical Engineering. I am particularly interested in software development and like contributing to open-source projects.

I have been actively contributing to OpenELIS because it aligns with my passion for leveraging technology for real-world applications. The opportunity to make meaningful contributions in healthcare, alongside a supportive community, is what interests me about OpenELIS.

I will be working on the project - Enhanced Search Functionality for OpenELIS. I will be sharing regular weekly updates in the thread - GSoC 2024 - Enhanced Search Functionality for OpenELIS.

Hi everyone!

I’m Manish Jha, I am currently a 3rd-year Computer Science undergrad at Jaypee University. I have a keen interest in exploring new technologies and contributing to the open-source community

I’m thrilled to be part of GSOC-2024 this year, working on OpenELIS—a project that resonates with my interests in healthcare and tech. My project focuses on Improving the End-to-End (E2E) test coverage for OpenELIS, which is crucial for ensuring the reliability and efficiency of the software.

Currently, I’m diving deep into understanding the intricacies of the project and gearing up to contribute my best. Beyond coding, I enjoy exploring different programming languages, attending tech meetups, and engaging in discussions on emerging trends in the field.

I’m looking forward to connecting with fellow GSOC participants, exchanging ideas,learning from all the experienced mentors and collectively making a meaningful contribution to the OpenELIS . Let’s make this journey a memorable and enriching one together!

I’m Vivek, currently pursuing my bachelor’s degree in Computer Science at IARE Hyderabad. I have a keen interest in web technologies and am eager to delve deeper into all aspects of web development.

My project Add Support for User UI Notifications, involves leveraging web push notifications. I’m currently exploring Java Spring and Implementation of web push notifications.

My interest in openELIS stems from both its role as open-source software revolutionizing healthcare and my specific curiosity about the configuration of openELIS’s backend. I’m particularly interested in understanding how our backend operates with various features like FHIR pipelines. After successfully completing my project, I plan to delve deeper into openELIS’s backend, specifically exploring FHIR data pipelines.

I am looking forward to having discussions with mentors and fellow contributors to gain more knowledge and make meaningful contributions.

Hope this summer will be full of learning with fun✨
