Hi all, I am Namrata Jha currently pursuing Bachelor in Technology in Computer Engineering from Delhi Technological University, India. I’m particularly interested in interning with mUzima this Fall because of the cause of healthcare that it primarily works for, and having contributed to the community earlier as well, am looking forward to contributing and working with the mentors this application period!
Hi! I’m Aashna from IIIT-Hyderabad, India. I would love to intern with mUzima this winter as an Outreachy intern. I want to work with the community for its novel initiative of providing healthcare. I have experience in Android and Java, and I would love to work on an android-based project! Please tell me how to get started!
Thanks, @namrata-jha and @aashnajena for your interest in a mUzima-Outreachy internship! As detailed in the project documentation (will be available on Outreachy website soon), this time round the project to be worked on will involve creating a version 1.0 drag and drop HTML builder for mUzima forms.
Please take a look at introductory tickets via the project’s issue tracker. Feel free to ask questions or attempt any of the introductory tickets.
Dear Ada Yeung,
I look forward to contributing and learning! Thank you.
The mUzima’s Developer Guide,
listed installing Java for your server. Do I understand that I have to execute all the steps in this guide in order to contribute? Thanks.
I am super interested in Developing an HTML drag and drop form builder for mUzima mobile application forms. From what I gather you want something more interactive for users to use and have experience with. I believe that my skills are highly suited for this and would love to work with you.
Hi? I am Joan, I’m extremely interested in working on this mUzima project as an outreachy Intern. I would like to contribute to this project, as it gives Health providers a platform that eases their service delivery process. I’m eager to start working on this project.
My name is Barine Sambaris. I am from Nigeria, Africa. I studied computer science and i need to expand my skills and improve on what i learned in school.
mUzima is focused on the healthcare sector and i would also love to be a part of helping people, and making lives better with a seamless healthcare.
Thanks for your interest. You do not have to execute all the steps, as it gives a general guide on how one would start while working on the mUzima app as well as the mUzimaCore OpenMRS module.
The form builder project is a new one and may not have been covered under that documentation. To begin contributing, you will need to look at the available tickets on the issue tracker and pick a task, then figure out the best tools to use.
Feel free to post further questions as needed.
I look forward to contributing to mUzima project of developing an HTML drag and drop form builder for mUzima mobile application forms as a potential intern. I have worked on a drag and drop web application before in JQuery and would like to challenge myself with this project since it is different from what I have done. Thank you.
Am Joan Nakibuuka from Uganda. I am very passionate about utilization of information technology to better healthcare delivery and therefore very pleased to contribute to mUzima during this period and after. Looking forward to lots of sharing, learning and contributing to the fruition of the mUzima from builder project.
Nice meeting you all!
@mssavai, @bmokaya hello. I have gone through the tickets as per the link provided by Ada in the pinned message but all tickets have been assigned. Kindly assist.
Hi @jnakibuuka, thanks for your interest. Some of the tickets such as MFB-12 allows multiple people to work on them. As you wait for more tickets, you can also test those tickets that have already been done and need testing. Please see updated contribution guideline/instructions via the following wiki page:
Hi there Ada and Fellow applicants,
I’m working with the Basic Encounter Form Template, but for some reason, some of the fields aren’t accepting text when I try them, particularly those under the subheading “Demographics”. Is anyone else experiencing this? Is it just on my computer? Thank you in advance for the help!
@JenCiaccio, for non-registration encounter form template, the demographic section is for displaying demographic data from existing patient record. That’s why it’s not editable. For the non-demographic sections, most fields should be enabled, unless the requirements specify otherwise (e.g. calculated field of BMI based on input values of weight and height).
