Hello all, I am Vineet Sharma, a tech enthusiast and under-graduate student at NIT Hamirpur, India. I am actively participating and contributing in OpenMRS for approximately 1 month now, especially in MFE Squad. I am glad to be a part of such a hard-working and supportive community and will love to be a part of the community ahead.
Right now, I am planning to participate in GSoC 2021 under OpenMRS. As I have been familiar with the MFE Architecture and it’s code-base by now and have a few contributions merged into the current projects, I feel that I am a good fit to undertake and work on Clinical Data Management project under Modernizing Administration functions for OpenMRS for GSoC 2021.
I am starting this thread so that I can post my ideas and ask my queries regarding the project. Moreover, this will help me to grab a better grip by discussing my ideas with the project mentors, and GSoC coordinators. I have started making my project proposal and will share it with you soon. I’ll also share my project timeline to get a review from the mentors and project champions for a better view and management.
My queries regarding the project are as follows and it would be a great help to get all your feedback on the queries.
As I have read and understood, Clinical Data Management project is to replicate the current functionalities of the current Legacy UI functions to MFE architecture using Carbon Design, ReactJS and Typescript. Since this task feels so simple and straight forward to sound, but a feedback from the mentors, who have been working on it, can help me have a depth knowledge of the project.
As mentioned in the project description, new functionalities maybe added while working on the project. If the developers have figured out some functionalities to be added, I request you if you can share it with me, so that I can prepare beforehand considering it and plan my draft timeline accurately.
My sincere apologies, I haven’t gone through the code-base of the Reference Application 2.x/ Legacy UI due to lack of knowledge in Java. I assure that I will try to learn Java before the coding period starts, so that I can refer to old code-base for any useful stuff and to add new REST APIs, if possible.
Every help and feedback will add loads to my knowledge. Thank You all!
