Yet another group of IT research developers have joined hands with OrangeHRM to assist us with some key development projects. These young talents are part of a project funded by the National ICT R&D known as "Integration of Open Source Software Projects in IT Education". Since the 2nd half of 2009 these researchers from the University of Punjab, Lahore, Pakistan have been working on few projects that were assigned to them and upon the successful completion of these projects we gained more confidence and realized the potential of the team. This led us to let them work on a new feature being the Meeting Scheduler which is under development. We are glad to work with these IT research developers and we welcome more developers from around the world to join hands with our community. Aisha Khan, a Research Officer at the PUCIT said, "Open source software provide students an opportunity to work with enterprise level software, examine their architecture and extend their functions; which polishes their skills and enhance their knowledge. Working with OrangeHRM has been a great experience. Project community is extremely active and they provided us complete guidance. OrangeHRM is following coding standards and Test Driven Development which is extremely good. Understanding OrangeHRM architecture enhanced our concepts. We got the opportunity to learn new PHP framework Symfony." Community feedback on bug fixes also helped us in improvement. Community wants contributors to follow a systematic way, as first we understood architecture and fixed bugs then moved to feature development. This really helped us and made things easier to work with. Features we are working onMeeting Scheduler Configurable User Rights Pipe-lined activities are “PIM Web Service” and some feature additions in “Recruitment Module” " The PUCIT Team
