Learning Reflection

Our group have reached the end of sprint 2 with a lot of accomplishments. We  are all connected to the AMPATH server and have completed our stories on Trello. This sprint period was a great one for my team.We received the result of our peer review  and it was pretty comforting to know that we’re all content with the team’s progress. We have improved individually and have manage to strengthen our teamwork and communication. During this period, Professor Wurst provide a set of diagrams that shows us how we can successfully manage version control. We forked the latest version of the AMPATH project and cloned it on our computers. One of us has created a remote repository for the AMPATH project so they can pull the latest version for the rest of the team. We also have a TeamOrganization repository where we will have our version of the project with the latest changes.Since we’ve connected to AMPATH, I have edited the project on WebStorm to get familiar with it however, i haven’t made any significant change. For the next sprint our team hope to be writing some Angular and dive into the project.

Week 1

During the first week of this software development course, we took the time to form teams that will work well together. Most of the class time was used to get comfortable in our teams and prepare to work on our AMPATH and openMRS projects. We are using slack to communicate with our groups as well as the rest of the class. Although I have never used slack in the past, I find it very useful and it is an efficient way to stay connected and share information.

During this week i have learned about openMRS and AMPATH, what they are, and what they stand for. It interesting to learn that OpenMRS is used throughout the world and they help countless individuals who needs medical attention. Moreover,  Learning Angular JavaScript is required to work on these project, therefore our team have been researching and practicing Angular.
