At AMPATH, we are starting to migrate forms to HTML Form Entry. In the process, we are running into some technical questions. For example:
- What’s the best way to handle validation across fields?
- Are there conventions or best practices for assigning IDs to fields?
- Why types of issues do devs at other implementations run into when supporting HTML Form Entry at their implementation?
Is this something that has been discussed & recorded in the past? Would @mogoodrich be interested/willing to oversee a dev-focused university class on working with HFE and try to answer questions? I know that myself, @willa, Jonathan Dick, and others at AMPATH would be very interested in an OpenMRS University on this topic in the near future.
I think this makes sense, and I’m willing to be there. However, seems like a large chunk of this (like your first two points) revolve around form creation, and @ball and @arbaughj would be the best resources for this. I think that Ellen has lead university calls on this previously… not sure if it has been recorded.
My favorite topic (or one of them anyway)… There was a University call in May 2014. I’d be happy to repeat or answer particular areas. The presentation and links are on the wiki:
htmlform implementers training
This is a great starting point. Thanks @ball. We’ll start with those resources and possibly come back later with some more informed questions.
Great idea Burke and this is the major blocker for us in Masaka-Uganda we cannot upgrade to 1.9.x,
We can have this on in the second week of Feb on 02-11-15
But why for developers only some of us are not developers but we have supported a number of implementations.
If you are scheduling a developer-oriented HFE University Forum, we’d greatly appreciate making sure @willa and Jonathan Dick can attend. 11-Feb could work for me, but I’d like to check with them.
