DIAL Sub-Org Template

  • Need to develop "Ideas" page - can base on DIAL template
  • Identify mentor(s) (advice from Michael, the more the better)


Could we expand our mentor pool by trying to get Logistimo or mSupply or another open source software in supply chain? Someone from another org, like JSI or Ona?

Admin contact: Tenly Snow (Deactivated)

Mentor(s) pool: Brandon Bowersox-JohnsonJosh ZamorNick Reid (Deactivated)Mary Jo Kochendorfer (Deactivated)
*Will determine which mentor(s) will fit for each project 

  • Project brainstorm on  

OpenSRP, or Bahmni? Could we do some kind of interoperability project with another organization? Potential to "co-host" a project with another organization? Potentially reach out to Darius about Bahmni participation? Relationship with DIAL? ODK could also be an option. 

Add a note to the Ideas page that the mentor/project team is based in PST timezone and that this could be challenging for India (and similar timezone) based students 

Ask SolDevelo if they would be interested in contributing time as mentors during meeting on  

Technical, non mainline projects 

*Separate from GSoC
Getting volunteer developers started on OpenLMIS 

Social Coder volunteer coders have signed up to contribute to OpenLMIS 

We have expressed interest in being part of Outreachy, 

Outreachy provides three-month internships for people from groups traditionally underrepresented in tech. Interns are paid a stipend of $5,500 and have a $500 travel stipend available to them. Interns work remotely with mentors from Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) communities on projects ranging from programming, user experience, documentation, illustration and graphical design, to data science. Interns often find employment after their internship with Outreachy sponsors or in jobs that use the FOSS skills they learned during their internship.

Outreachy internships are open internationally to women (cis and trans), trans men, and genderqueer people. Internships are also open to residents and nationals of the United States of any gender who are Black/African American, Hispanic/Latin@, Native American/American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, or Pacific Islander. We are planning to expand the program to more participants from underrepresented backgrounds in the future.
