Powering interoperability with a FHIR to DHIS2 adapter
The HL7 FHIR standard is emerging as an integral solution to the much discussed interoperability challenges in global health. However, there are many operational platforms that use proprietary formats and there is a large quantity of data “locked” in those proprietary formats. As new projects go live at scale we are building tools to 1) unlock

Logging readable ClojureScript errors to Sentry
An essential part of a running a production web application is having deep visibility into what is causing errors and how code traces underlying them are propagating through your code base. When using a compiled (or technically, transpiled) language, there is the additional challenge of understanding how an error in the target language translates back

Clinical Decision Support and Measure Reporting in FHIR
Through clinical decision support (CDS) and measure reporting, FHIR gives us powerful tools to encode algorithms for healthcare workflows and define metrics that track patient care. The HL7 standards of Clinical Quality Language (CQL) and FHIRPath expressions let us express both our CDS and measures in a portable way.

Developing Android libraries that are easy to use - Part 1: Make the library conventional
We more often than not re-use code when developing software. For code to be reused when working in Java, we can package it into classes, packages, modules (read gradle-modules), or an artifact. In Java, we call these artifacts JARs while in Android they become a bit more complicated and independent to become AARs. AARs contain drawables, strings, layouts, values, assets and even the AndroidManifest.xml. However, to truly re-use the code
