Why Open-Source Software?
Ensures high maintainability, no installation costs, and leverages the skills of developers who put their expertise at the disposal of the project. By working directly on the code there is a high level of personalization and a continuous evolution of the software.
Who Can Contribute?
Software developers and IT technicians, professionals, experts or simply enthusiasts of computer science and programming but also those who do not have a high level of technical skills can contribute to the growth of the project.
How to Contribute?
You can work directly on the code or participate in the roadmap discussions; you can submit a detailed bug report or answer questions and requests; you can create specific documentation or share new ideas; you can send feedback or just participate with translations.
Why Contribute to the Development of Open Hospital?
For Education or out of Passion

For the Community
Using a tutoring program to help you quickly get involved in the project, sharing innovative ideas and improvements, asking questions, and answering questions from other members
For Ethical Reasons
By improving the management standards of hospital facilities in poor rural areas
To Test Your Skills
Regardless of what your contribution is, it is important and it may be a good time to learn new things or test your skills
Who is the Committer?
The one who directly accesses the code repository.
What is The Role of The Committer?
The role of the Committer is to review and eventually approve the contributions proposed by the Contributors.
How to Become a Committer?
The number is limited and not necessarily tied to skills and experience: it is mainly based on a history of positive contributions.
What is Tutoring?
An initiative that accompanies volunteers on the road to becoming a contributor to the Open Hospital project. The tutor is not “responsible” for a contributor’s work but acts as a support.
How to Become a Tutor?
There are no particular constraints: however, it is necessary to have demonstrated a good skill level and gained experience as a contributor.
02. Try It Out
Choose between demo mode, where you choose the role and can explore the various levels of functionality, or user mode where you are in effect a member of the community.
03. Identify an Issue
You are ready to identify issues and see if they have already been reported. If the bug has not yet been identified, you can create the issue.
04. Create a Fix
At this stage, it is essential to develop a FIX for the issue by creating a clone of the official repository, implementing the correction and submitting a “pull request” to the COMMITTERS.
