This is the fifth week of the Coding Period and the ninth blog of my GSoC journey. I had my first GSoC evaluation, and it went extremely well. The mentor’s feedback has motivated me even more, and they are quite happy with the progress of the project.

Here is the link to the project.
What progress have you made this week?
This week I finished working on the rest of the screens of the app. I also had a live demo with the mentors. There are few discussions on it being not similar to the mHBS Training App. I plan to work on it this weekend.
My mentor and I tested the app with the server, and we found out that the Evernym SDK was altered a bit and wasn’t compatible with the way the app was coded. In the meantime, I would be working with the test server.
My mentor also suggested me to document all the UI work I have done. The document would include the decisions I have taken to keep in mind the new material design UI for an Android App. This would help us get a better understanding of the app in the future. As of now, I have pushed all my code to the feature-ui branch on GitLab.
What do I plan to do next week?
I plan to work on making the app look similar to the mHBS Training app. I would be creating a new branch called feature-ui-mhbs and would make all changes to make the app look identical to mHBS. I plan to do it over the weekend.
I have the test server, which is working fine. So, to integrate scanning, connections, and notifications in the app is my next priority. My mentor has provided me with some dummy data. I’ll try to incorporate that as well.
Have you had any blockers or issues that are impeding your project?
There was a slight change in how the Evernym SDK functioned in the server. We found out that this week, while testing. We hope to fix that soon. This isn’t a blocker for now, as I can work with the test server.
