From the OpenMRS website - openmrs.org: "Open Medical Record System (OpenMRS®) was created in 2004 as a open source medical record system platform for developing countries – a tide which rises all ships. OpenMRS is a multi-institution, non-profit collaborative led by Regenstrief Institute, a world-renowned leader in medical informatics research, and Partners In Health, a Boston-based philanthropic organization with a focus on improving the lives of underprivileged people worldwide through health care service and advocacy. These teams nurture a growing worldwide network of individuals and organizations all focused on creating medical record systems and a corresponding implementation network to allow system development self reliance within resource constrained environments."
Looking to get started at a developer? Read the blog post about a new book for OpenMRS developers. The book, "OpenMRS Developers' Guide", can be found at http://en.flossmanuals.net/openmrs-developers-guide/.

Setting Up A Development Environment
Option 1: Follow OpenMRS Instructions for Manual Installation
- Visit: http://en.flossmanuals.net/openmrs-developers-guide/get-set-up/
- Scroll down to "Manual Installation" and follow the instructions given for your operating system
Option 2: Download a Virtual Machine with OpenMRS Pre-installed
- See OpenMRS-VM for more information about a virtual machine put together at POSSE 2015
- See OpenMRS-Dev for continued work on the VM above into a development environment virtual machine
- See OpenMRS-Dev1 for continued work on the VM above that allows the VM to function as an OpenMRS server where students can install newly developed OpenMRS modules that are compiled and built using the students' preferred IDE on their host machine for the VM.
- Download, install, etc.
- Track our own "journey" on how to approach the project - be able to model for a student
- Try to get to the point of being able to make a small contribution to the community
