It was an absolute delight for me when I was notified that I’d be taking part in the Google Summer of Code 2019 session with OpenMRS. Having been a member of the OpenMRS community since 2017, I have experienced first hand the beauty of being part of such a wonderful organization, an organization wherein help is always just a click away, where everybody is treated with respect and coding is fun.
My project for the GSOC 2019 session is titled UI for Password Reset. This project would entail building an appropriate user interface for the password reset functionality that was introduced in GSOC 2018, as well as making some modifications to that project. The expected finished product of my project is a complete, effective and responsive Password Reset User Interface.
Over the course of the Community Bonding period, I was in constant contact with my mentors to figure out how to implement this project. Although I am proficient in Angular, my mentor advised me to study React JS as that would likely be the technology to be used for the user interface. I picked up a few courses in React Js on Udemy, and on the ReactJs official website. Although I wont say I am an expert in React as of now, I’d say I am comfortable working with it and would get better eventually.
I am enthusiastic and look forward to these three months of coding and the challenges they shall come with. LETS GET ROLLING!!!
