  • AngularJS & REST Web Services 101

    by Darius Jazayeri

    OpenMRS software development is moving towards building web components that can work with each other, instead of being part of the Java module framework. Since the release of the webservices.rest module, we have focused on improving the REST resources so that we have a complete API that is accessible over HTTP and developers with different language skills can contribute. This tutorial will provide instructions on how to use the OpenMRS REST API to build custom user interfaces using modern/popular tools. Most efforts in the community have focused on using AngularJS, and we'll showcase some of the "best practices" in AngularJS development.

  • Extending & Customizing OpenMRS

    by Daniel Kayiwa and Rafal Korytkowski

    In this full-day tutorial, you will learn how to extend OpenMRS's features and customize it for specific needs. Topics covered include Program management, workflows, reporting for stakeholders, clinical functions, and administration tasks. You will also learn to build basic add-on modules to extend OpenMRS functionality, and how to work with other module projects to improve them. We will look at development practices and "best practices" in OpenMRS module development such as using the SDK, using pre-built concept dictionaries and defining roles/privileges for the reference application. The tutorial will be useful for new developers, new implementers and for community members who want to look at the coolest/greatest modules for customizing OpenMRS. It might also be useful for people who want to get new ideas for modules.

    Labrador Nature Reserve (also locally known as Labrador Park) is located in the southern part of the main island of Singapore. It contains the only rocky sea-cliff on the mainland that is accessible to the public. Since 2002, 10 hectares of coastal secondary vegetation and its rocky shore have been gazetted as a nature reserve. It contains many historical relics from World War II and earlier, left behind by the British. That is because it has a long history, dating back to the 19th century. It also played a significant role in the history of Singapore.
