Announcing the Re-establishment of the popHealth User Group

Dear OSEHRA community,


We would like to announce the re-establishment and first meeting of one of our OSEHRA groups.  The popHealth User Group, chaired by Jackie Mulhall, will be an open discussion group about popHealth for new or potential popHealth users. The monthly calls will educate participants on what popHealth is all about and new developments.

This group meets on the second Wednesday of each month, and the next meeting is scheduled for October 14 at 2:00pm Eastern.  Here is the login information for the call:

New Online Course: Understanding EWD.js: Working with Global-based Databases

I’ve added an important new online course to the EWD.js training materials available at Udemy.  It’s named “Understanding EWDjs: Working with Global-based Databases”

As its title implies, the new course focuses on how you use the Global-based storage provided by Cache, GlobalsDB or GT.M from within EWD.js.

In fact, however, the course takes a wide-ranging look at Global storage, including:

- the basics of what it is

- how it can be used to model all the different types of NoSQL database
