Blog Entry for Week Ending March 10

OpenMRS and more on projects.

The class had a discussion on the reading “Continuous Integration” by Martin Fowler. We compared continuous integration between Plone and OpenMRS and most of us agreed both were very similar and followed most of Fowler’s points on what good continuous integration is. In lab we practiced setting up a server for OpenMRS and creating a project on it. I started to look more seriously at my individual project and tried to start changing some files. My group got together and talked about how we are starting out project.

I had trouble with the lab getting it to work. The night before I was going to try the lab since it looked like it might take a while. I found some problems with the instructions and not being able to follow them exactly. Constantly setting up the server I would run into errors from a file missing, to needing to run a script again. However, using the OpenMRS site provided in the instructions concurrent with the instructions and going through discussions on OpenMRS sites I was able to figure out where to put files and debug the errors. I also ran into problems with my individual project. The code I tried to expand on was broken when cloned and only worked in specific browsers. I found that the project I cloned wasn't any kind of javascript that it was javascript ES6. The project came with multiple different variants of javascript. I found a standard version that works on the online editor Cloud9.

I learned how to setup a server and create a project for OpenMRS. I practiced my taking feedback from discussion posts and applying them to my problems. I learned to carefully read what kind of code is being used because there can be variances of specific languages.

My goals for next week is to be able to run the individual project with ease and not having to use specific browsers or methods. After that I will start expanding on the project. I need to keep discussing with my group about starting our project.
